Ain't_Talkin'_'Bout_Love by Van Halen (what I remember anyway)
Transcribed by Eric Larson (larsoe@rpi.edu)
The main riff goes something like this:
(Palm-Muted of course)
Am G ----------O-1-----3---------------| ------1-------1-----3------------.| --------2-------O-----O-----------| ----2----------------------------.| --O---------------------3^~~-2-3--| (the ^~~ means do afunkey bend/vibrato) ----------------------------------| AH (Artificial Harmonic)
Then he does something like this after that and for the chorus:
---------------------------------------------------------- ---------3------------------------3----------------------- -2-X-2-X-O----------------2-X-2-X-O-------/5-5/7-7/9-9/12- ('/' = slide) -2-X-2-X-O----------------2-X-2-X-O----------------------- -O-X-O-X-X------3^~~-2-3--O-X-O-X-X----------------------- ---------3--3-3-------------------3--3-3------------------ F F P P AH F F P P (F = Finger Mute P = Palm Mute)
The verses I believe are like the main riff only not muted, just let the notes ring.
I don't even have a tape of the song anymore so I can't figure out the solo... I forgot it, sorry. The solo is pretty simple though.... Well I'll write down what I THINK it sort of sounds like.... perhaps someone would like to mail me a tape?? (I'd be happy to figure out the rest of the songs if someone would :)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------10---10-10-12--------10---12-13-12--------------10---12-13-13/15--13-15- -9-12-----------------9-12---------------12\9---9-12-------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------| -15^~~~-| I'm sure this last part isn't right but it fits...... --------| Man, I gotta get this CD as soon as I get some cash, --------| this is such a kickin' tune!!! --------| As a matter-o-fact, this was the first song I ever learned!!! --------|
The sound Eddie gets is the result of a good flange sound and I assume a Marshall cranked up to eleven!
"Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" (Van Halen) intro: Am F G ---------0-1-----3-------------- -----1-------1-----3------------ -------2-------0-----0---------- ---2---------------------------- -0-------------------0-3b*-2-3-- -------------------------------- *pinch harmonic
