Slow Animals

  		
Tuning: Standard 

Guitar 1: Nick Valensi (panned left on recording) 
Guitar 2: Albert Hammond Jr (panned right on recording) 

I was originally only trying to figure out Guitar 1's part, but by doing so I also 
stumbled upon some of Guitar 2.  I haven't figured out all of guitar 2, so I'll just 
include what I do know as an extra.
