"Dueling Guitars" from August Rush
Doug Smith & Heitor Pereira

This is my favorite song from the movie August Rush, and I could not find tabs for it 
so I did what I could by ear. I'm not sure if all of this is completely right, but it 
pretty close when you play it.

p - pull off
h - hammer on
\ - slide down fretboard
/ - slide up fretboard
X - slap

Tuning: (the main chord in the song is D, so I just tuned my guitar to a D chord for the song)
        EADADGb

(August alone)
