Canadian YouTube musician Cole Rolland is definitely one of our favorite shredders on the internet. The dude is known for his killer guitar renditions of popular songs; from hip hop hits like Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart” to Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”, it’s no exaggeration to say that his videos pretty much cover it all. And speaking of covers, he’s risen from the ashes to show you his brand-new cover of Van Halen’s famed classic “Eruption”, only right here, on Gear Gods!
If you’re a Van Halen fan, we’re pretty confident that this cover does the original justice, and then some. All live audio, Cole manages to pull this short-but-sweet tune off with ease, all while capturing all the shreddy moments and more nuanced bends. This is a song that inspired whole generations of guitar players, and hopefully Cole’s interpretation keeps that momentum going.
Be sure to follow Cole on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as to check out his tunes via Spotify. Cole Rolland is endorsed by Kiesel Guitars, EMG Pickups, Jim Dunlop products, Fractal Audio, and 64 Audio.
