AND THE CRADLE WILL ROCK...
VAN HALEN: Women and Children First
Tabbed by:Carl Gustafsson to Taborama.com
           


  Here's some tab for =VH='s and the cradle will rock.I know it was originally
 played on a Wulitzer electric piano, but what the hell, it sounded like a
 guitar and sounds great live.
 If anyone happens to have any WACF or FW shows, please leave me some email,
 we'll trade some stuff.
 Latah.Ed's moving the pick along the low E string, sliding it up and down (something
like: x\ x\ x\ x\ x\ x\ x/ x/ x/ x/ x/ x/ x/) with an MXR flanger pedal at
the beginning.
