Eddie Van Halen

Best known as the lead guitarist and co-founder of the eponymous hard rock band Van Halen, he is often considered as one of the world's greatest guitarists, with Allan Holdsworth describing him as "Second only to Jimi Hendrix, undoubtedly the most influential, original, and talented rock guitarists of the 20th century." In 2012, Guitar World's poll named him as the greatest guitarist of all-time.

Eddie van Halen's approach to the guitar involves several distinctive components. His use of two-handed tapping, natural and artificial harmonics, vibrato, and tremolo picking, combined with his rhythmic sensibility and melodic approach, have influenced an entire generation of guitarists. The solo in "Eruption" was voted #2 on Guitar World magazine's readers poll of the 100 Greatest Guitar Solos.
