Episode 338 – Diver Down, Diver Down, Side Two Please

Who best to analyze a Van Halen album with a track by Track analysis than a reporter from the Van Halen News Desk (Eric Senich), somebody who can play anything by Van Halen on guitar (FastFret Fingers), and… well SeanGeek, a dude who reads comic books.

Part Two of our Track by Track Analysis of Van Halen’s Diver Down. Let’s flip that album over and start digging into Side Two.

(0:55) Dancing In The Street
(8:00) Little Guitars (Intro)
(10:04) Little Guitars
(12:47) Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now)
(15:50) The Full Bug
(19:28) Happy Trails

We cover the songs and hit on Jan Van Halen, Donna Summer, some Fair Warning talk and just which song caused controversies amongst the three. The boys discuss what we should cover for the following episode (take a listen, we aren’t going to spoil it).

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Todd McGinity

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
