Exclamation Van Halen invented djent!!!

OK, well maybe not, but I got your attention didn't I !!!???!!!

Well, it turns out my Uncle Ben, who is actually also YOUR Uncle Ben (ask your mom!) did a great video of how to play the main keyboard rhythm parts to the tune Jump by Van Halen on a Drop C tuned swirly Ibanez, and the open C chugs just make it sound awesomely powerful.

Check it out...

Have to admit, as soon as uncle Ben put this up I sat there until I got it right.

I really hope Ben continues on his Van Halen binge, there's a lot of stuff that never sounded quite right from the tabs. Ben seems to nail all the little quirks in Eddie's playing.
