Ain't_Talkin'_About_Love By Van Halen


(What I remember anyway)
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 :)

I'm sure this last part isn't right but it fits......


Man, I gotta get this CD as soon as I get some cash,
this is such a kicking tune!!!
As a matter-o-fact, this was the first song I ever learned!!!

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