Van Halen 1984 Guitar Tabs

Hot For Teacher Tab



Subject: TAB: Hot For Teacher - Van Halen

It'd be hard to put it all, but ill put a few parts of it that are cool...

Intro:

A string: -0-3-7-12-7-3-  (four x)  -0-5-9-12-9-5-  (four x)

   - play the indicated patterns tapping on the A string:  use the 1st
     and 4th fingers for the notes on frets 3 & 7 and 5 & 9 and tap the
     note on the 12th fret with the right hand finger....

Play same exact pattern as before on the D string but end with the tapped note
   (youll have to listen to it to get the jist...)

G str: -0-3-7-12-7-3-0-3-7-12-7-3-0-5-9-12-9-5-0-5-9-12-9-5- (two times but
   end with the last tapped note --------------------^
   - again, tap the notes on the 12th fret..

high E -12-7-12-8-7-12-5-
                       B: -12-8-7-5-
                                   G: -12-8-7-5-
                                               D: -12-8-7-5-
                                                           A: -12-8-7-5-
this lick is a fretboard pattern that is the same on each string down the
neck..  tap the notes on the 12th fret and pull off the rest..  work your way
from the high E string down to the A string..

-2----5-4----5-4----2\1-2------10-7-4----1-2-1/2----5-4--5-4-2\1--2-2-2-2-2-2-
------------------------------------------------------------------2-2-2-2-2-0-
-2-----------------------2----------------------2-----------------0-0-0-0-0---

listen to it for tempo... at each f# played on the low E string, play it in
eighth notes until the next chord....  the \ denotes a slide.... this carries
you into the main theme to the song which is based on the A chord .....dont
have time to put it in but see if u can figure it out...  it uses pulloffs
at the 5th fret of G str first time and pull offs from 3rd fret to open on the
A str when it kicks in....   have fun..  Rob

Van Halen - Hot For Teacher    - transcribed by Gary Chapman
===========================

Key:

+   = tapped note
X\  = pick slide
x   = hit string for percussive noise
^   = hammer/pull
/   = slide
~   = vibrato
w~  = whammy vibrato
<>  = natural harmonic
/// = high-speed picking

---

Intro:

(I've deliberately left out hammer/pull notation because they are too 
obtrusive in such numbers.  I've given an example of what to do)
