Author/Artist: Van Halen
Title: Cathedral
Album: Diver Down
Transcribed by: Kelly Levine
Email: acadrman@msn.com

I use to play this in the late 80's, I used a Roland 1000 delay
and a Boss choirs pedal. The trick is to hammer the note with
the volume control off, then turn it up then down. On the
Delay, have the feed back about 50% with the Choirs. A word
of WARNING!!!! When I was learning this I froze 2 volume
controls. After the 4th I stopped playing this song. I'am
in a Christain rock band and when you play this it turn heads.
Have fun.

These should just be barra fingerings. I don't understand why you went out of your way to not use the simplest fingering.
