Eddie Van Halen C Form Barre Chord
In Fretboard Theory Chapter 3, CAGED System Chords, I mentioned the “Keith Richards” trick that uses a partial A form barre chord and a partial C form barre chord. Eddie Van Halen uses the same trick in the Van Halen song, “Runnin’ With The Devil.” See the tab excerpt below. This is a really cool example of using a C form barre chord because it actually goes from the partial A to the partial C through the use of hammer-ons. Thought it was worth sharing.
