Little Dreamer Guitar Lesson – Van Halen

In this Little Dreamer guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great song off of Van Halen I note-for-note.

The tuning is Eb standard, Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb.

Eddie once again has some great riffs in this one. In between those riffs he will also throw is a bunch of creative fills so there will always be something interesting going on in each guitar part.

The solo finds Eddie in a bit more of a contemplative mood, albeit still with a lot of his signature legato licks and massive bends. I will take you through the entire solo phrase-by-phrase.

Have fun learning yet another timeless Van Halen classic with the incomparable Eddie Van Halen. R.I.P. Eddie!

      That would be a great one. Great chords, and beautiful melody. Cool solo too. One of their best slow tunes.
