I always consult either google or youtube to be familiar with the piece. There are a lot of videos online that may help you.

Pick-hand tapping, using the whammy bar to get to an exact pitch (rather than just waggling it), legato playing, controlling your sound on your amp - the list is endless, which is why it made such a good warmup exercise back in the day for students as well as for EVH himself.

Eddie used to warm up to Eruption? I didn't know that piece of trivia. Awesome.
