Van Halen  hot for teacher.
 Tabbed by ryan mullan  ryan_mullan@hotmail.com.

 what i think is the best song from the fantastic album 1984, and a great example of a
trademark EVH solo.
enjoy
P.S if you dont have the song this will be very difficult, go buy it!
Key:

I've got it bad, so bad - I'm hot for teacher.

(with clean riff)

\"Hey, I heard you missed us, we're back !\"

\"I brought my pencil !\"

\"Gimme something to write on, man !\"
