Finish What Ya Started (By VAN HALEN)
 
From: fscll@acad3.alaska.edu (Chris Lott)



                               FINISH WHAT YA STARTED   Van Halen
                              from: March 1992 Guitar World

In this song ^=1/4 step bend
            /= slide up
            =slide down
            ~= vibrato
        --20--30---  two notes together=  pull offs

                I have not looked at enough of the tab on here to be sure I
used standard notation for the group, bot it is all pretty self-explanatory.
The only problem I had was notating hammer ons because a 1 to 3 hammer on
looked like a fretted note at 13!! oh well... hope someone out there gets some
use out of this...
