Girl Gone Bad

Van Halen (from 1984)

To avoid wasting vast amounts of space, entire sections are labeled as being tap
harmonics 
rather than notating the harmonics for each note. For every note in these 
sections, hold down the tabbed fret, and then tap exactly 12 frets above
to sound 
the harmonic. It's a very tough song, so good luck, and send feedback to 
aaronlg@hotmail.com
 
 
*7* = artificial harmonic
<7> = natural harmonic
#   = note(s) beneath this symbol are tremelo picked
T   = note beneath is tapped
 
INTRO PART 1:
 
**all tap harmonics**
