Alf Leila Wa Leila

Tuning: Standard

You can always mail me at fadylabib@hotmail.com if you have any questions or 
comments, I'm not incredibly sure this is 100% right. I think this song deserved a tab.

This is my first tab. The intro (which is probably half as long as a full album 
these days lol) is made up of a lot of parts that come back and things that go in 
between. It's transcribed from many different instruments, so some parts are 
really hard to replicate on a guitar.

Play the notes on the 10th fret in a steady rhythm, then throw the 11th fret note 
right in between them.

That keeps on going for a bit with different instruments

Play main tune 1 


I think I've got everything for the intro, you'll probably have to check its order 
a bit but I think the notes themselves are correct. Like I said, this is still my 
first tab, so don't be too hard on me :)
