No kidding, it took about two or three years before I emerged from my ego-shattered pit of despair and came to grips with the problem. Very slowly and carefully, I started learning a Van Halen lick here and another one there. Pretty soon, I could play whole songs. And I learned that my monster, Eddie Van Halen, was just a guitar player like me, and we both had ten fingers and six strings on our guitars, and his amazing technique and tricks .
And eventually, I came to be a huge Van Halen fan, of course. And I felt a true connection to Eddie, because he became like my guitar-playing big brother, always one step ahead of me, but always encouraging me and showing me that I could get there, too. God bless you, Eddie. You don’t know it, but you kicked my ass, destroyed my ego, and put me through hell. And I am so grateful for it.
