Can't Stop Lovin' You
Van Halen (Balance)

Transcribed by: Bob Brockman

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes:

   This song is actually in A, but I first scoped in out in G and it's
   (I think) easier to play that way (for me, anyhow) with more open
   strings.  Eddie obviously doesn't share my limitations...

   There are several one-off sections in this song, most of which lead
   into the chorus or solo sections; I've isolated them and labeled them
   "pre-chorus" or whatever.

This is the first part of "Can't Stop Loving You" by Van Halen from 
what I can figure out.  It isn't much but when it's repeated 
with a little improvising it covers most of the song.  Enjoy.

Here is a cool Van Halen song.  All I know is the main
     riff and the solo which is surprisingly easy for an 
     Eddie solo.  Anyways here is Cant stop loving you.
     Verse:
     ---0------------------|-----------------------|
     ---3---3---2---0---2--|---10---10^---9--10--10|
     ---2---2---2---2---2--|-----------------------|
     ---2---2---2---2---2--|-----------------------|
     ---0------------------|-----------------------|
     ----------------------|-----------------------|
     Also on the verse a second guitarist strums the second fret
     on the top E string(thickest), or you can use your thumb
     as Eddie does.

     Solo:
     ------------------------------------------|----------
     ---8---7\5----5---5\8----8/10---10\8\7\5--|----------
     ------------------------------------------|----------
     ------------------------------------------|----------
     ------------------------------------------|----------
     ------------------------------------------|----------

     ---------------------------|------------------------|
     ---------------------------|------------------------|
     -------------------5\7\9---|-----4------------------|
     -----------5\7\9-----------|--4----5------2-------2-|
     ---5\7\9-------------------|--5------5----2-----2---|
     ---------------------------|--5-----------3---3-----|

     --0----|---------------------------------|-----------
     --0----|---------------------------------|-----------
     --2----|---7/9----7---6------------------|-----------
     --2----|------------------7--------------|-----------
     --0----|----------------------7---5---4--|-----------
     -------|---------------------------------|-----------

     This is almost the whole solo.  I changed it to Eddie's
     live version.  So it is a bit easier than the Cd.
     It'll do anyways.  Good Luck
