Ain't_Talkin'_'Bout_Love
      by Van Halen		(what I remember anyway)

Transcribed by Eric Larson (larsoe@rpi.edu)

The main riff goes something like this:

(Palm-Muted of course)

Am		  G
----------O-1-----3---------------|
------1-------1-----3------------.|
--------2-------O-----O-----------|
----2----------------------------.|
--O---------------------3^~~-2-3--| (the ^~~ means do afunkey bend/vibrato)
----------------------------------|
			AH		(Artificial Harmonic)

Then he does something like this after that and for the chorus:

----------------------------------------------------------|
---------3------------------------3-----------------------|
-2-X-2-X-O----------------2-X-2-X-O-------/5-5/7-7/9-9/12-|  ('/' = slide)
-2-X-2-X-O----------------2-X-2-X-O-----------------------|
-O-X-O-X-X------3^~~-2-3--O-X-O-X-X-----------------------|
---------3--3-3-------------------3--3-3------------------|
   F   F    P P AH          F   F    P P		    (F = Finger Mute
							     P = Palm Mute)

The verses I believe are like the main riff only not muted, just let the notes
ring.

I don't even have a tape of the song anymore so I can't figure out the solo...
I forgot it, sorry. The solo is pretty simple though.... Well I'll write down
what I THINK it sort of sounds like.... perhaps someone would like to mail me
a tape?? (I'd be happy to figure out the rest of the songs if someone would :)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
------10---10-10-12--------10---12-13-12--------------10---12-13-13/15--13-15--|
-9-12-----------------9-12---------------129---9-12----------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

--------|
-15^~~~-|  I'm sure this last part isn't right but it fits......
--------|
--------|
--------|

The sound Eddie gets is the result of a good flange sound and I assume a
Marshall cranked up to eleven!
