    Eruption......On violin.....

    http://www.bobbyyang.com/video/750kb.htm

    There yah have it, eruption on violin. Pretty awesome if you ask me but the tapping bit erks my nerves and i hate how it sounds. Still an awesome sight.
    Keeping in mind violin is much harder than guitar........

    Pretty cool, but I'll choose the guitar version over that any day. It sounded clean and looked cool, it doesn't sound nearly as good on a violin as it does on a guitar (probably because it was written for guitar!) Props to the guy in the video though.

    That was awesome!!! Not as crazy as hearing Ragamuffin on the steel drums though.

    meh I've seen it before. He does a great job of emulating the guitar tone, tapping, which is probably the best, is sloppy, but for a violin the tone was horrible

    Yeah, I agree with AyKay, for a violin the tone was horrible. At parts it was allright, but generally horrible. And as Unhorizon said, it simply wasn't written for the violin....

    Nevertheless, impressive, fun and always nice to see that Rock 'n' Roll spirit put to use.

    it was ok in my opinion, some parts weren't exactly right but he got his point trough; eruption can be played on the violin, and that, if you ask me it's a pretty good acomplishment
    man, there's some guy who can play eruption on the violin and i can't even do it on the guitar

    I think it's more impressive seeing John Popper play that sort of thing on the harmonica. That guy is an animal!

    It's cool that he did it tho! Much better than I can do.

    Wow. Some people have waaaay too much time on their hands...
    I liked the first 30 secs and the last 30 secs. In my opinion, he could have dumped the part in between..

    But cool. Wonder what take that is?

    It is sort of funny seeing it start going the other direction. Guitar players have been imitating violin forever (Paganini's 24 Caprices, etc), and now there's a violin player playing a classic guitar etude.
