Guitar 2 - lead 4 - distorted electric (I'll finish as soon as I can)

 -some of the notes are played so fast where they are tabbed directly
side by side. If they are tabbed side by side I will put the "h" and
"p" (hammer-ons and pull-offs) symbols above the tablature line. This
keeps timing more accurate.

(played with rhythms 6 and 7)
(04:23) - (07:12)
