Song: Irene
Artist: tobymac
Album: Momentum
Tabber: thegeniusboy05@hotmail.com 

I got tired of just seeing the intro to this song, so I tabbed out all the fills on the album version.  Feel free to improvise too.
I hope the rythme riff doesn't make it more confusing...I put it in the Guitar 2 part, mostly to show timing, and where it should be included.

Key:
/: slide up
\: slide down
h: hammer on
p: pull off
~: tremolo
