The death of Eddie Van Halen has sent shockwaves throughout the music world as artists from all genres remember the groundbreaking style that he brought to rock and roll with his innovative techniques and one-of-a-kind sound.

And while Eddie was a self-taught guitar player, aspiring guitarists who want to emulate their fallen hero have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn the instrument from some folks who know a thing or two about guitars.
