Blues-Rock Lick At End Of "You Really Got Me" And "Show Your Love" 

Source:  Eddie Van Halen and some previous blues source(?)

Tabbed by Rich Kucera

slur (sler) vt. 1. pass over lightly  2. run together

Xb+1/4 == bend note X up a quarter-tone

This is all done in an E-minor blues pattern,  perhaps
wrong,  and maybe not everything is entirely accurate.

The following lick appears on Van Halen's 1st album
in the last chords of "You Really Got Me" and
"Show Your Love":

---------12-----------------------------12-----------------
----/12------15b17b15p12------12h15p12------12h15p12-------
--------------------------14--------------------------14---
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------

-------------12--------------------------------------------
---12h15p12-----12h15p12------12---------------------------
--------------------------14------15p14p12------14---------
--------------------------------------------14------14-----
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
----11h12p11--------11-------------------------------------
---------------14-------12h14------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
PAUSE.

"You Really Got Me" proceeds as follows:
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
----11h12p11------11---------------------------------------
--------------14------12h14---11h12p11------11-------------
----------------------------------------14------12h14\12---
                     
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
---------------------2-------------------------------------
----\10---\7---/9----0-------------------------------------

and,  from the PAUSE, "Show Your Love" proceeds 
*something* like:
------------------------12h14p12----12--------------------------
--------------12h14h15-----------15----14h15p14p12h14p12----12--
----11h12h14---------------------------------------------14-----
----------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
---14p12h14p12-\11h12p11-\9h11p9-\7h9p7-\5h7p5-\4h5p4p0~---
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------

EVH's lick can be added as a slur
on another blues lick:
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----15p12------12-----------------------------------------
-----------h14------12------------------12b+1/4------------
-----------------------h14---14----------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------

Here's the lick with the EVH lick incorporated:
--------------12-------------------------------------------
----12h15p12------12h15p12------12-------------------------
---------------------------h14------12--------------12b+1/4
----------------------------------------h14--14------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------

Slur and stay relaxed.

Enjoy!
