    Trying to replicate Eddie Van Halen's famed "brown sound" This is using the Fender Frankenstrat EVH guitar and marshall stacks with mosvalve tubeworks head and varying other effects.

    Excuse the sloppy play


    This is an accumulation of mistakes to get this sound but this is as close as I think I can get. Now just got to practice the playing.




    If it doesn't have a guitar, it isn't music.

    The last vid sounds great!
    Looks like a lot of fun. Ima lil jealous.

    I really wish I had played a musical instrument. Guitar and drums would be sweet.

    I knew I wanted to play guitar since I was a toddler. Was great to impress girls in high school.

    Wow, nicely done!

    Reduce the delay and add a flanger, and Hear About It Later would be spot-on!

    Mostly my equipment. It's at my friend's makeshift studio right now. I just have a smaller Mesa Boogie amp in the basement.

    Thanks bro.
