About this tab version
This tab is tapping section only. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Van Halen Eruption Solo Tapping Section ON BASS
This section was somewhat self taught mostly went off of a guitar tab
Matched the notes with down to a 4 string bass
There are a few videos on youtube of this being played but no tabs were listed

Any suggestions or edits please let me know 
In my opinion I would play this on a light set of strings and lower the action on the bridge
