--- Mr.Scary (Gary Chapman) ------------------------- scary@zikzak.apana.org.au 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 :)

The sound Eddie gets is the result of a good flange sound and I assume a Marshall cranked up to eleven! From: caton@eniware.it (Stefano Picciolo) Subject: TAB: Ain't talkin' 'bout love (Van Halen) Date: 10 Dec 95 13:01:22 CET Another version of this famous riff:
