amazing song.

flat tuning, but it's van halen, so you knew that

e-eighth note
q-quarter note
h-half note
T-dotted half note (Three beats)
w-whole note
r-eighth rest
R-quarter rest


come in during that drum roll thing on the last eighth beat of the measure,
tying it over to the first eighth beat of the next meausure.  in fact if the measure 
with an Eb, always tie it over to the next measure (ex: last note in 2nd measure of the 
part of this tab, the 5-4-2-0

my bad. i forgot about like 3 measures in the 1st pre-chorus. but it's the exact same thing that's done in the first half of the pre-chorus, so u shouldn't have a hard time figuring it out.
