In a 2015 piece for Arizona State University’s Zocalo Public Square, Sarah Rothbard noted that Van Halen did not simply teach himself music, but also invented a new sound. As an immigrant of modest means, he often couldn’t afford the best equipment. According to Ms. Rothbard:A self-taught musician, Mr. Van Halen popularized the two-handed tapping technique of playing with both hands on the neck of the guitar. The style, which showcased how blindingly fast he could pick out a melody, helped make “Eruption” what is widely considered among the greatest guitar solos of all time. With his brother he formed the basis of Van Halen, the band that made hard rock’s comeback in the 1980s.
He also learned to use his fingers to make sounds that others might seek to achieve through expensive technology. Ms. Rothbard recounted an interview with the rocker at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington. Van Halen talked about the lessons learned from his father, who was also a musician:In between taking up guitar and becoming a star, there were “a lot of years of experimentation,” said Van Halen—taking apart guitars, opening up amplifiers, and getting electrocuted. Some of that was driven by necessity. But a lot of it was just his nature... Van Halen knew the sound he wanted to achieve, but he couldn’t find a guitar that could make it. So he got different parts from different guitar-makers, including Gibson and Fender, screwed and soldered and melted them together, and built the instrument he wanted.
“With his distinct solos, Eddie Van Halen fueled the ultimate California party band,” observes Mark Kennedy of the Associated Press.
With a road-battered guitar, lightning-quick fingers and a welcoming good-time grin, Eddie Van Halen and his band Van Halen may have been just what the 1970s needed.
In that 2015 interview at the Smithsonian, Van Halen was asked if he felt he was living the American dream. Ms. Rothbard notes his answer:Amid a sea of aging ’60s rock acts and forgettable radio fare, Van Halen brought a refreshing jolt of energy to the stage with his hard-rock hooks and wild guitar flash in the Jimi Hendrix tradition. By the time the decade had come to a close, he’d become as influential as any guitarist who came before.
During his visit to the museum he elaborated on what it means to live in the U.S.:We came here with approximately $50 and a piano, and we didn’t speak the language, he said. Now look where we are. “If that’s not the American dream, what is?” he said.
I’m very proud to be an American, for one. It’s freedom. And a country of opportunity where if you have a dream, a gift, a talent, and a passion—if you work your tail off, you still have the opportunity to achieve anything you want to achieve.
