I Like Van Halen Because My Sister Says They Are Cool by El Ten Eleven

Man, it took alot of time to finally get it right. This is all my work
and also my first tab! if you have any questions email me @ ContraryFlunky17@yahoo.com

Kristian Dunn uses a Fretless Bass,BOSS Blues Distortion, BOSS RC-20XL
 Loop Station, Digitech Whammy, and a Line 6 DL4 Delay Stompboxfor this song.
For the Harmonic slides, you can not use a fretted. So I'm just going to put
each loop seperate in order.

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note

Tuning:DADA


First loop!(BOSS Blues and the DL4 on tube delay), have your left hand on:

A|---12--|
D|---11--|
A|---12--|
D|-------|

And with your right hand, tap:

A|------19----------19----------19----------19------------|
D|---------18----18----18----18----18----18----18---------|
A|---19-------19----------19----------19----------19------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|

Second loop! Bass Line!
No distortion for this loop, just high bass!

A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----7---7---7---7/--9---9---9---9---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2/----|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---7---7---7---7---9---9---9---9---0---0---0---0---3---3---3---3-------|

 So now back to the Blues Distortion, DL4 Delay and set the Digitech Whammy
1 Octave up! Just hit twice and the delay should repeat them.

A|---4+--------------5+------------------------------------------------| (x2)
D|-----------------------------------5+--------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------4+----------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

To harmonic slide, you play the harmonic then press down and the
harmonic should still be ringing, then you slide it up and it down! The timing
is weird, but you should get it.

A|-----4+/6\4/6\4------5+/7\5/7\5-------7+/9\7/9\7-------12+\11/12\11---|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|-----4+/6\4/6\4------5+/7\5/7\5-------7+/9\7/9\7----------------------| (x2)
D|--------------------------------------------------------5+\4/5\4------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|


A|---4+--4+--5+--5+--------------------4+---4+---5+---5+-----------------------|
D|-------------------5+--5+------------------------------5+--5+----------------|
A|---------------------------4+--4+------------------------------4+--4+--------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

What Kirstian does live is on the last harmonic, he turns off the Whammy,
bringing it back down.

Chorus-Loop One!

Blues Distortion and DL4, Whammy in Bypass.


A|---4+--5+----------4+--5+---------------|
D|-----------5+--------------5+-----------|
A|---------------4+--------------4+-------|
D|----------------------------------------|

Loop 2! Same effects!

A|---4+--5+--12+-7+--4+--5+--12+-7+------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------|

The heavy bass! Distortion, Delay is optional!

A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12\9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9\7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7\-|

A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-0---0---0---0/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9\7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|

A|-------------------------|   (x2)
D|-------------------------|
A|-------------------------|
D|---17\16/17-17-17-17-17--|

So switch back to the previous loop and let that playout once while you get
 your pedals up( Blues, DL4, Whammy back up an Octave)


A|---5+-| (x15 or so)
D|------|
A|------|
D|------|

Then back in with harmonic slides! YES!

A|-----4+/6\4/6\4------5+/7\5/7\5-------7+/9\7/9\7-------12+\11/12\11---|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|-----4+/6\4/6\4------5+/7\5/7\5-------7+/9\7/9\7--------5+\4/5\4------| (x2)
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|


A|---4+--4+--5+--5+--------------------4+--4+--5+--5+-------------------|
D|-------------------5+--5+----------------------------5+--5+-----------|
A|---------------------------4+--4+----------------------------4+~~-----|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

  So after that, Kristian throws his pick in the air and holds down:


A|---7--- And Taps  A|---19----|
D|-------           D|---------|  and just keep tapping until it loops itself.
A|-------           A|---------|
D|-------           D|---------|

followed by:

A|---12--           A|---19----|
D|-------           D|---------|
A|-------           A|---------|
D|-------           D|---------|

  Now, switch the Digitech Whammy to bypass and repeat:


A|---7---           A|---19----|
D|-------           D|---------|
A|-------           A|---------|
D|-------           D|---------|

Finally stop the loop and began  new one with regular:
its a constant note so you can loop it whenever you please.

A|---7---           A|---19----|(x15 or so)
D|-------           D|---------|
A|-------           A|---------|
D|-------           D|---------|

  Now this part is really confusing to tab but if you
listen to it you hear it,just tap on both strings and
 pull off( remember that you have to move your left hand
the the pull off notes.)
