                     In The Air Tonight - Phil Collins
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is an instrumental version of In The Air Tonight, the famous song by
Phil Collins. The guitar tabbed out here is playing the vocals. It sounds
best on a distorted guitar. I've added the lyrics to help figure out the
slides. Sometimes you have to slide to a note quickly and only sound the
final note, sometimes you can let both sound out. 

The tab is based on this fantastic cover of the song by Adam Lee:

I've tabbed it off that video, so if you're unsure about a part, just
watch that as a guideline.
