I happily stumbled upon this tribute to Mr. Nelson, albeit, somewhat mistitled for this audience :-) I thought it was well done and would make watchers who were not familiar with Bill's work want to take a listen. It may have been posted previously but I could not find a thread and well, it's worth mentioning nonetheless. Please consider it a "re-issue" if it bears the label "repeated". Of course, repetition is the mother of pedagogy so well worth it. Enjoy, if you haven't seen it.

Just heard the sad news that one of my "other" guitar heroes, Edward Van Halen passed today from cancer. As a high school student I used to go see Van Halen quite often at the local L.A. clubs. Ironically, it was because of going to club gigs that I got to see and meet Bill and Ian when they played at the Whiskey where toward the end of Van Halen's pre-release days, they played often.
Rest in Peace - Eddie Van Halen content media

I just finished watching videos with Paul Stanley and Brian May sharing with their fans during this quarantine period. Mr. May's effort is most definitely of humble quality -- He's using a phone to record it but if you ever want to see how he played the lead in Bohemian Rhapsody, pretty cool and very intimate (I mean, he's pretty comfortable in shorts). Mr. Stanley's is rhythm rock & roll which of course was his gig, can't fault him for that. He gives very caring advice at the end. Would it not be so incredible to have our hero show us how he plays the lead in Crying to the Sky or Axe Victim...Or even the eBow awesomeness in Above these Clouds the Sweetest Dreams (Yes, I have the DVD but the cameraman was not that interested in creating a lesson)? Just a wish, oft repeated, oft denied.
