Gary Moore once left partway through a Van Halen gig to teach himself EVH’s trademark tapping technique

Few guitar stars have had as much of an impact on the instrument as the late Eddie Van Halen had. Through his stellar tone and unrivaled technical prowess, the electric guitar legend inspired legions of aspiring players, and continues to be a go-to resource for those who simply want to listen to, and learn, from a master.

As it turns out though, a young Van Halen also had an immediate impact on his very own seasoned contemporaries, and was so good that his live performances once even convinced late blues guitar titan Gary Moore to broaden his already extensive technical horizons by adding Eddie’s trademark tapping to his arsenal.
