Just riffing out on election night with my little practice rig. I'm just rockin' some intros to songs and not being too serious. I went SPDIF into my CD recorder and used the same "Eddie Van Halen" patch for all of the riffs.

Guitar is a 1990 Hamer Centaura with a stock JB in the bridge and 2 Dimarzio Area 67's in the middle and neck positions. Strings are .010 gauge Dean Markley Blue Steels. Pick is of the yellow Dunlop tortex variety.

I boosted the bass in the Megadeath and Metallica with the Waves Max Bass plug-in. Added a touch more reverb to the VH parts and scooped the mids slightly for the George Lynch part as far as post production is concerned. But again, I used the same patch for all of the riffs.

I used first takes, so if there are little mistakes in there, I don't care because the performances were fresh and made me smile. I've never had lessons really and never sat down and learned these songs so if I am not playing them correctly sorry, but I was just havin' a bit of fun. I'm just trying to show the beauty and flexibility of the Line 6 POD X3 Live since a lot of people don't seem to understand that they are hands down the most affordable and powerful effects on the market.

I'm really just showing how a Line 6 POD X3 Live can do a supremely convincing Marshall sound. Imagine... the EVH sound with only a stock JB and a Pau Ferro fretboard. It's all at your fingertips with Line 6.

Yes, my guitar is dirty, I'm tryin' to build up the mojo. lolz.

Riff List:
Eruption/I'm the One
Holy Wars
Master of Puppets/Thing That Should Not Be/Creeping Death
The Hunter
