Okay, here's my second posting of a rather difficult Van Halen tune (the
first being that "Poundcake" monster).  The first thing you gotta do if you
wanna sound like the record is tune down 1/2 step.  The signature riff
(which is also the chorus part) is quite difficult to play.  Try to find
as many actual chord-shapes as possible; that way you won't have to make a
million changes in hand position.  There's some bits of lyric here and there
to help you keep up...
A few notes on my tab:  "p.m...." means palm-mute;
                        "a.h...." means artificial harmonics
                        "b" means bend
                        "b&r" means bend the notes up to pitch and
                                then release the bend to the original
                                pitch.
                        "bf" means bend full

Then it's back to the verse, pre-chorus, and chorus parts one more time
through, then it's SOLO time.  (DON'T ASK!)  After that, there's a bit of
a "bridge":

Oh man she owns it."   "Here we go a-    round..."

(go to the chorus and ad lib a fade-out)

That's it.  That should be all you need to do an accurate version of
and I'll give it a shot.  I might even do the outro part too.
