In the piles and piles of live footage out there of Eddie, what are some of the best examples of his various picking motions and associated playing? There are a bunch of good shots of the tremolo technique. “Live Without A Net” (LWAN?) has the classic shot of that from the solo. The low angle shot from the 1983 USFest show is also pretty cool, although the quality is generally low on that footage.
LWAN also has some decent shots of Ed’s wrist-oriented playing. I caught very brief YouTube example of some blazing wrist tremolo done at forearm-level speeds at the end of one of the tunes. I just ordered a fresh DVD copy off [edit:] Amazon and will sit down and watch the whole thing for other examples.
The audio-only 70s bootleg tapes from the first tour and the club shows before that have some blazing picking, but there’s not much video of that time.
What else comes to mind?
