This is a complete tab for Van Halen's "Hear About it Later." Greg J. Musi 
already did a great tab for the intro, so I just left his part as is, and
then 
took over where he left off.

after the clean-toned intro above, there are two guitars, both
distorted. the 
lead guitar plays:

VERSE:
Lead guitar takes a break, while rhythm guitar plays:

(note: I'm not sure if the tap harmonics are really what he's doing, only
that 
he does something of that nature to raise the octave of those
notes. Personally,
I just play the notes normally)
 
*Rhy. Fig 2*

and then you bend it even further while continuing to trem pick
 
GUITAR SOLO:
 
for a few bars, there is no guitar whatsoever as the drum and bass set 
up the mood or whatever. then, the lead guitar comes in with:
 
                     palm mute                               palm mute

OUTRO CHORUS:
 
Rhythm guitar does nothing for a while, and lead plays the following:
 
E|-5---5--5--5--5------5---------------------
B|-8b--8b-8b-8b-8br-5-8b-5-7-5-7-5----------

At this point, the rhythm guitar enters with Rhy. Fig 1 as the lead 
continues. I think the rhythm guitar eventually goes up an octave, 
but it's not that important.
