Wow, what an incredible display of technique. His Rasgueados are amazing as are his scale runs. But what really takes the cake is 3:23 - 3:50 - take that Eddie Van Halen!!

Not sure if this is right or not, but I seem to recall reading somewhere that Van Halen learned that technique from one of the Romeros.

Van Halen did NOT invent tapping!!... This Italian guy did in 1965!!!


One good coment ... by Knifiac
Eddie Van Halen never actually claimed to invent tapping, besides he probably discovered the technique on his own anyway, so it was equally as creative

I love Eddie Van Halen's guitar recordings. I don't think I ever thought that Eddie Van Halen invented tapping. Also, by the time I was aware of Eddie Van Halen's guitar recordings - tapping was somewhat widespread and I might not have had any particular reason to associate Eddie Van Halen with inventing tapping. I suppose that this video title is "Eddie Van Halen did NOT invent Tapping!! because some people do associate Eddie Van Halen with having invented tapping.
