SONG NAME Dancing in the street - Band Name Van halen
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: swordshredder
Email: bobman1102@aol.com

Tuning: EADGBe

When I went to tab this (no one else had) I was surprised how
Simple it was.
During the verse the guitar is kinda doing a lead fill
But its barely audible.
Weird intro sounds can’t be done.

Kick in and verse: (4 times)

the intro is played by clicking the killswitch down on every non open note. so everynote is heard except the open ones like so. (the notes which you hit the killswitch are starred*)
