How to Play Eruption

Any Strat style guitar with a Humbucker pickup at the bridge of the guitar.

Key:
B   : Bend
B(6): Bend Pitch indicated
T   : Tremolo pick (Pick Fast)
Tr  : Trill
+   : Tap
\   : Slide Down
/   : Slide Up
H   : Hammer On
P   : Pull Off
PM  : Palm Mute
~   : Vibrato
W~  : Whammy Bar
*   : Harmonic
ď   : Pinch Harmonic

Gear:
Eddie used a MXR Phase 90 script or something like that, use the newer  Block version if
want, but Eddie used a script instead of the block. He also used a boss equaliser, you
also use a MXR Distortion + if you want as well, just as good. He used sometimes two 
instead of just the one. And he also had reverb at about 2.5 Sec Decay time and a delay
about 500 probably 600 Mil Secís and a Tape Delay at the end. I would prefer a fender 
watt head amplifier stack but you choose.

Drive :8
Bass  :5
Treble:7
Mid   :6
