ApologetiX - It's Tough (Song About Nehemiah)  

There are two guitars in this song. Guitar1 plays that funky riff,
guitar2 plays along with the bassline. When the tabs for each guitar
are not separated by a space, they're played together. 

FILLS - These quick fills are played by guitar1 in between chord
changes in the verse. I put them here because it looks crowded
in the tab. The tab shows you when to play them in the intro, 
but for the rest of the song you'll just have to figure it out.
I don't think there's a regular pattern--just improvise.
h = hammer-on, p = pull-off, 

i hope it isn't too complicated !

   I                        II

"OUTRO," which is really just the repetition of the chorus, but

at one point the guitar1 chorus riff switches to this, and is played
until the song fades out. Not sure how to tab out the exact rhythm,
but here it is. At this point, the chords of the song are maintained
by the bass.
