Van_halen tabs

316 guitar tab


From: The Vicious Chicken of Bristol 
I've included that in this version.

My brother and I went thru the CD, and we are firmly convinced that one of
the chords tabbed as D is actually a kind of F#min... it's sounds a lot like a
D, but it has something extra.  Be careful to put the accents on the right
strings.  Hard to do, but if you can do it then it really sounds professional.
Check out the CD.

(Not too sure about the last few harmonics at the end, too...)

Major changes are marked in []'s.

Apologies to Chris Billman (the original tabber): thanks for the GREAT job!

BTW: Check out "Van Halen: Live Without A Net" if you want to see Eddie
playing this.  He finger-picks it (and smokes a cigarette at the same time).
It's at the beginning of his solo.  He used to put an acoustic guitar on
his pregnant wife's stomach and play this.

Cheers,

Since I've gotten so much tab from nevada and alt.guitar.tab in the last
few weeks, I thought I'd return the favor to everyone and post one of 
mine.  I was surprised how easy it was to transcribe to the computer,
so you may see more from me in the future!

Anyway, this is a really pretty song called _316_ (after the Van Halens'
kid's birthday) from the album _For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge_.  It's
a very simple song, just watch your timing and really nail those harmonics
at the end!!  

Notation:
        xSLy - Slide from x to y
        xHy  - Hammer from x to y
        xPy  - Pull off from x to y
        xB   - 1/4 Bend from x

316 - Eddie Van Halen
(album version)
tab by Paul D. (pdmytrewycz@music.transy.edu)

This is a fairly straight-forward piece.  I think the chords are just
A, Bm7, C#m7, and E.  But they aren't strummed so it doesn't matter.  :D
The little hammer-on/pull-off bit during the repeat of the first bit is
done between the A chord (--222-) and the Bm7 (--423-)

Fingerpicked...

The last bit is done by fingering an Asus2 chord (-02200) and tapping the
octaves of the fingered notes.  The fingering is shown here with the
tapped harmonics in parentheses.  You gotta QUICKLY TAP RIGHT ON THE FRET
indicated in parentheses to get the harmonic to sound right.
