Yankee Rose - Tabbed By John McHugh 

Any comments email me at tokaimaster@hotmail.com

By Steve Vai And David Lee Roth!

Off of The "Eat'em And Smile" Album! 

Hope you have a floyd rose cause your gonna need it!

I tabbed all the bits that i could some the dives i just do randomly and dont aim for a specific note
but thats the beauty of guitar, play it the way you like it :o)!

This is my first tab so im not sure how to put some of it into tab but ill give it a go! 



Main Riff! Steve ends this differently each time so i put the endings in different boxes!
                                                                                    
|-3---------------------------3------------1---1---1-----------------------|
|-3-------------------------------3--------1---1---1----3---3-3-3----------|
|-0--0--------------0-----------------0----2---2---2----5b7-7-7-7r5p3------|
|-0---------------------0--0---------------3---3---3------------------5-3-5|
|-2----------------------------------------3---3---3-----------------------|
|-3-----0--1--2--3-------------------------1---1---1-----------------------|



Ending 1: Steve only picks the harmonic once and uses the bar for the rest!

e-----------------------------|
b-----------------------------|
G---------------[5]b7r5r3b5---|
D-5(dive bar)-----------------|

Ending 2:

G-------------5--4--5b7r5--5--3-------3---------------|
D--------------------------------5--3------5p3--------|
A----------------------------------------------5p3\1--|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

Ending 3:

                 Here you hold the open note and tap where you would play a
                 natural harmonic at the 24th fret! Sounds awesome
e-----------------------|
b-----------------------|
G-0-(dive bar)-t<24>----|
D-----------------------|
A-----------------------|
E-----------------------|

Ending 4: To be Figured out :-p

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brige: I'm Sure this is mainly one chord (F) played in two different places to add effect!
