Gary Moore - Loner tab

Song: The Loner
Artist: Gary Moore
Album: Wild Frontier (1987)
Tabbed by: Johannes Samuelsson

This is probably the greatest instrumental theme of all time!
I'm not that good at transcribing songs and the fast fills in the end are just my
interpretations but they sound OK.
Also I couldn't be bothered so much about the timing so just listen to the song and
hopefully you'll get it right.

Standard tuning (E A D G B e)

Key:

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
b =  bend
fb= full bend
r = return from bend
~ = vibrato
/ = slide towards the nut
\ = slide towards the bridge
()= optional note

Slow intro:
