IRONIC - ALANIS MORISSETTE
>From the album `Jagged little pill'


Transcribed by Louis Visscher . 
This tablature would not have come about without the help of Jeff Elkins
. He transcribed the chord-version with a
capo at the 4th fret. I use his chords in this transcription.
He distinguishes 3 guitars. 
I also would like to thank Evan C. Parker  for his
initial transcription of this song, just like Shawn Maschino
 and Maarten Klaassen .
My tab is for 1 guitar only. For the other guitar parts, look at Jeff's tab! 
In verse 2, a clean guitar plays the tab, a clean guitar strums the chords,
and a semi-distorted guitar plays a few riffs. I have incorporated those
riffs in the tab, in such away that one guitar can play both the tab and 
the riffs.
