14-Year-Old Tina Wails on Van Halen’s ‘Eruption’ – Best of YouTube
Eddie Van Halen may have turned in one of the greatest guitar moments in history 35 years ago when the instrumental piece ‘Eruption’ appeared on Van Halen‘s self-titled debut album, but he also set the bar for generations to come. This tricky solo is definitely one for those with nimble fingers and 14-year-old Tina S. has shown she’s up for the challenge.
In a YouTube video, the teen offers an incendiary version of the Van Halen classic, rocking her Vigier Excalibur custom guitar through a swagger-filled take. Tina has her own YouTube channel, which also showcases her playing Eddie Van Halen’s solo on ‘Beat It,’ as well as several other classics.
