PLEASURE DOME
Van Halen,For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge
tabbed by dsale@jax.jaxnet.com
http://www.jaxnet.com/~dsale
ok,ed played this w/a steinberger guitar.its basically the same thing,but
the trans-trem makes it sound like he's using a slide when he depresses it.
it also moves a few keys up and is able to be locked there,as well.
H=Harmonics
P=Palming (only used on parts i deemed necessary:)

ok the intro:
notes - A & B sound like they are played together.i dunno.i never play the
        high part,just the low part,sounds as good.on the high part he
        vibratoed that entire last chord,i just vibrato the 3rd fret on
        the G string.

play twice:
A.H--->       B.               H------------------>
