        Here's Panama by Van Halen... THE WHOLE THING (Well most of it anyway)

Transcribed by Eric Larson (larsoe@rpi.edu)

I figured this out with my own two ears, so I'm sure it's not perfect, but
I tried to come as close as I could. This is a great song to learn. The chord
progressions are classic. The solo I found hard to notate, I give the basics,
fill in the rest with your own improvisation. I should be posting Drop Dead
Legs soon, another awesome tune!  Perhaps someone could post some stuff off 
their latest album???

That's about it, It's 2:30 am, I'm beat. :O *yawn* I don't feel like double

mistake!
