Van Halen - Drop Dead Legs
Tabbed By: Carl Gustafsson
EMail: bingocalle@hotmail.com


Here's basically the whole tune, I ommited a couple parts that were hard to
notate, so just improv something. :)
Any questions or comments, just email me.Intro & Verses                                         3x

The Choruses are something like the into:

  You know that you want it....                                  etc...
----             -------           -------          -------      ----
----             ---3---           ---5---          ---3---      ----
-2--             ---2---           ---4---          ---2---      -2--
-2--             ---4---           ---6---          ---4---      -2--
-O--             ---O---           ---O---          ---O---      -O--
----             -------           -------          -------      ----

Then there's that break thing with this awesome run...

Then the outro rythmn goes something like this: (palm muted)

Pretty good tab. I kinda wished there was more of it, but its not bad as a basis for me to start out on ya know.

BTW I'm pretty sure the main riff part goes like this:

e-----------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------
G-7---------------5-----------------------5--2--5
D-7--------0------5----------5-4--5-------5--2--5
A-5----pm2---\5~~-3--pm2-3-5------2---pm2-3--0--7
E----pm5-----------pm5--------------pm5----------


Your way still sounds fine playing the open A string in the begining instead of the fifth fret 6 string. Thats just how I thought it goes^^
