In this Top Of The World guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of this great song off of Van Halen's For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge album.
The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.
There are so many great riffs in this one. Starting with the instantly recognizable intro riff, I will take you through each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.
Besides all of those killer riffs, I will also demonstrate Eddie's solo note-for-note. This solo is yet another example of how Eddie could craft an amazing solo that moves effortlessly from singable melodies to flashy legato licks. It all just makes perfect musical sense and is highly inspiring to listen to.
Have fun learning this one! R.I.P. King Eddie! Carl...
