On fire
                                      By
                                   Van Halen
                                
                         

Ok iŽve been all over the web trying to find this, but havenŽt 
seen anything but the solo, so i thought iŽd do it by myself.
This is a rather tricky song to figure out, because of all small 
licks, so everything might not be correct...                                             

Use a delay,set at about 250 ms or so,plus a flanger to give 
that ominous distorted sound that Eddie gets.
ThereŽs bits of lyric to help you keep up.
Anyway, here goes:


Key:

b  : bend
bf : bend full
x  : noise
w  : whammy
pm : palmmute
(5): natural harmonic
\  : slide downwards
/  : slide upwards
T  : tap note (i never tap using the pick,
               finger-tapping gives a greater sound)

Intro:
                       
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|-9-7-5-7-4-------9-7-5-7--2*b------17b19wbw---------------|
|-9-7-5-7-4-------9-7-5-7----------------------------------|
|-7-5-3-5-2-------7-5-3-5----------------------------------|
|-----------3bxxx------------------------------------------|

*:bend 2nd and start picking fast while sliding up to 17th fret without 
  actually fretting,thus causing harmonics.

Then do this:

|-0-(5)-(5)-(5)-(5)---|     Strike harmonic at 5th then make noise on muted 
|------x---x---x---x--|     strings g and b.The rythm may feel a bit awkward
|-----x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|     at first,but you`ll soon get the hang of it.

Pre verse:
                                                      harm........

      "turn your radio`s ooon!, iŽll be a right there"
 
(note:  means slide >:up or <:down, by the way the whole chord is slided)

  eeeeaaaarrrrss!"       This tapped riff is played really fast!

For the prechorus play:

Pm         ............... Pm      ...............      
|--------------------------|-----------------------|
|--------------------------|-----------------------|

  C5 B5                   C5 B5
        as i ride your sonic ooh wawe    (good god, yŽall)

Palm-mute all F#s and B`s 
These chords should be strummed pretty hard...

Chorus:

  G#  G# G   G  A#  A#
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|
|-15--15-14--14-17--17--|
|-15--15-14--14-17--17--|
|-13--13-12--12-15--15--|
|-----------------------|
                    "On fireeeeeeee"

play the chorus 4 times
then do this:   (4 times)

|---------------------5--------4-------|
|---4--------5--------5--------4-------|

Verse 2:

Lay your bodies down, iŽm in your beds, your beds
Pull your headphones on, iŽm in your heads, ah
        
ŽnŽ iŽm hanginŽten now baby, as i ride your sonic, ooh wve
(good god, yŽall)

After the solo, play the pre-verse part again (the harmonics all being on
the 5th fret,youŽll get the point if you listen.)then do the "beep" part 
again, a little bit longer(for the drums to fill in)then its verse again with 
some minor changes not worth tabbing,then play the chorus until end.
Since the recorded version fades out at the end, i havenŽt been able to figure 
out a fitting end yet.
Once again, this might not be totally correct, but it does sound pretty good. 
If youŽve got any comments or so just let me know.
