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.

Violin solo I had a lot of difficulty with this part so this isn't really accurate. Feel free to email me if you think you've got it.

Main tune 2 again (just once this time) Percussion enters
E|---------------------------------------------------| \B|-8-10-11-11/13-10---15\13-13\11-11\10-8-10-11------| |G|---------------------------------------------------| |D|---------------------------------------------------| |A|---------------------------------------------------| |E|---------------------------------------------------| \

Play the notes on the 10th fret in a steady rhythm, then throw the 11th fret note right in between them.
E|-10-10-11-10-10-10-10-11-10-8-6-6-8-9-8-6----------|B|---------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------|
E|-5-6-8-6-5-3-6p3-----------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------|
The slide from the 9th to 8th fret is very fast.
E|---------------------------------------------------|B|-8-6-4-3-3-4-6-8-9\8-8-6-4-6-3-4-6-8-9\8-----------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------|G|-8-7-5-3-2-0-2---5-3-2-----3-----------------------|D|-----------------------5-4-------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------|
Play everything since Percussion enters again. Change in percussion

Play main tune 1 again violinE|--------------------------------------------8\6-8\6|B|-15-13-11-10-8-8-10-8-8-10-8-8-10-8-10-11-13-------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------| x2A|---------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------|

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 :)
