Van Halen – Atomic Punk
Off of VH #1 and diver down for sure.
Here is the beginning lick of Atomic Punk. Use a flanger, or combfilter, and
A tad o' slapback delay for the Sliding noise effect. The partial rhythm
For Dancing in the Street's is a distorted heavily echo timing thing.
Oh maybe if you want to try a different thing for the Atomic Punk you can
Add a wah into the signal and roll it back a little  and give it a try.
This seem's to make it more fatter or give it just the right hint of
Sustain when you need it. I think. Tune those babies down a 1/2 step too.

*=scratch srings with edge of palm in like a rhythm of three. You really need
The flange for this and echo would add a cool effect if you time it rite.
