Hot For Teacher Tab

   
Van Halen  hot for teacher.
 Tabbed by ryan mullan  ryan_mullan@hotmail.com.
  
 what i think is the best song from the fantastic album 1984, and a great example of a trademark EVH solo.
enjoy
P.S if you dont have the song this will be very difficult, go buy it!
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)
