Feelin'
Van Halen (Balance)

Transcribed by: Mike Heasley (mheasley@hmc.edu)

	I grabbed the tab for this off of ftp.nevada.edu and thought it was
	close but not quite right.  So here's my rendition.  I basically
	just edited the version that was transcribed by Bob Brockman
	(brockman@udavxb.oca.udayton.edu).  Corrections, comments,
	suggestions, flames, etc. welcome.

Part 4:  Same as Part 1

     outta touch most the time
     gotta lotta things on my mind
     kickin' down, where to start

Part 5:

     it's the hardest thing  oh....

e|--------------------0--------------|

G|------4-------4-----------2---2----|
D|----4-------2-----------2---0------|
A|--2-------0-----------0------------|
E|------------------0----------------|

     grow it long, shave it off
     life is hard, never soft
     i need a change, i need it quick
     before it makes me sick

Part 7:

                    that's what's on my mind

A|--7---------------5------------------7-------------------------------|

Repeat parts 4 through 6:

     pay attention, watch your back
     pay your dues, stay on track
     got no room to second-guess
     puts me under stress   oh....

     if i were you, you were me
     i wonder who i'd wanna be
     with just one wish you can't refuse
     i wouldn't know what to choose

Part 8:
                                        (not exactly sure about this chord)

Shame it doesn't have the solo, it's one of Eddie's best, or most underated anyway, anyway kudos on the naming original source. Most tabbers that steal tabs don't give credit to the original tabber.
