Van Halen - Crossing Over chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams

Crossing Over is a fairly easy tune to play; I haven't tried to figure it
note-for-note exactly but the following will suffice for jamming with the
CD.  It's in the key of F until the harmonizing guitars come in at the
end, if that helps.

The beginning sequence has tapped harmonics (at the octave) for the
following chords:

     Dm         Dsus2       C       Csus2
E    5            5         3         3
B    6            5         5         3
G    7            7         5         5
D    7            7         5         5
A    5            5         3         3
E    x            x         x         x

The next part is similar to the beginning of Black and Blue (the fingering):

     C      F      C     E     D       Dsus2
E    x      x      x     x     x         5
B    x      x      x     x     x         5
G    5      10     5     9     7         7
D    x      x      x     x     x         7
A    3      8      3     7     5         5
E    x      x      x     x     x         x

     D      F       G     A     G       Csus2
E    x      x       x     x     x        3
B    x      x       x     x     x        3
G    7      10      12    14    12       5
D    x      x       x     x     x        5
A    5      8       10    12    10       3
E    x      x       x     x     x        x

Play the C, F, C, E, D, Dsus2 
again, and then play D, F, Bb, A, G,


Play a muted Dm, Dsus2, C, and Csus2.  With the single ascending note on
the B string.


An F and A arpeggiated thing:

E   ---------------------------------------------------------------|
B   ---------------------------------------------------------------|
G   ----0----2-3-2------0----2-3-------0----2-3-2------0----2-3-2--|
D   -------3---------------3-----2--------2---------------2--------|
A   -3----------------3----------0---0---------------0-------------|
E   ---------------------------------------------------------------|

And - my favorite part - one of the 'screams' at the end is a harmonic on
the G-string at about 2.2 frets.

Hope it is clear.
