Main Riff

What a fantastic riff from Eddie Van Halen. It’s great insight to the brilliance of Van Halen’s rhythmic chops.

Pay special attention to the placement of the palm mutes (P.M.) as they greatly affect the sound of the riff.

Below is what it sounds like looped at the normal tempo of 128 bpm.
