Any comments email me at [email protected]

By Steve Vai And David Lee Roth!

Off of The "Eat'em And Smile" Album!

Hope you have a floyd rose cause your gonna need it!

I tabbed all the bits that i could some the dives i just do randomly and dont aim for a specific note
but thats the beauty of guitar, play it the way you like it :o)!

This is my first tab so im not sure how to put some of it into tab but ill give it a go!



Main Riff! Steve ends this differently each time so i put the endings in different boxes!

About the artist behind Yankee Rose:

David Lee Roth (sometimes referred to as "Diamond Dave") (born October 10, 1954, Bloomington, Indiana) is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality, best known as the lead singer for Van Halen. After leaving Van Halen, Roth started his own career as a solo artist. His early albums were well received, but starting in the early 1990s, subsequent releases fared successively worse as popular musical tastes changed and Roth's band underwent numerous personnel changes.

Roth has re-united with Van Halen, and the group is currently touring North America. In 2008, an album and further worldwide touring are proposed to follow.[1]
