I decided to tab out this song, since nobody else on here tab one correctly.
And it's also my all time favorite Van Halen song. This tab might be a 
bit of a mess.

Hope this one works out. [travis]

Chorus: Heavy
Tape Echo: Little bit

Thanks a lot Queen Beast. There wasn't a good version of this tab anywhere, so I decided to do it myself. It's my all time favorite song too, plus "Panama."
