Introduction: (if you are a good guitarist and can pretty much figure the song out on 
own theres really no need for you to read this long long paragraph just skip to the tab 
if you want to understand the things added to make this song easier to learn i'd suggest you read away!)

becasue this is my first tab, im going to offer some insight on this file. the FLCL 
of advice is basically a long fast (and INCREDIBLY AWESOME!!!!) guitar solo
with bass, and rythm backing of course. what im trying to get at is there are
no lyrics) for the sake of making this musical masterpiece easy to learn im am 1st:
 breaking the songinto parts the "solo" parts (the parts that are the crazy,
fast riffs), and the"melody" parts (the parts that contain a more musical and
melodius [duh!^_^] value.)
if at first you cant tell which parts im talking about just listen to the song and
belive me you'll be able to tell the difference^_^. 2nd: i am further splitting up
the solo and melody parts using the " | 
" symbols. however, in most cases, these symbols are used to divide a song in to
measures (you know, 4 beats ^_^) i am not using these symbols in that manner,
i am using these symbols to break up the solo at parts that i think are good
"break points" for easier learning. *be advised* just because a break point is
present doesnt mean the break is long or even existent! 3rd: i am placing the
time in which each part occurs at the start of every "break point" most tabbers
but the time of the song every so often im doing it this way so you know exactly
(or as close as possible)when a certain riff starts, this is so you can concentrate
on parts that you have the most trouble on specifically. 4th: i am adding 
for many "sets" of notes so that you have a feel for whats going on. Finally im
labeling the "grace notes" with a "." above their position grace notes are notes
hat are played very quickly and subtly and may be hard to hear.If you are a expert
guitar player and you find all this "extra" stuff annoying feel free to ignore it
and do it however you like, its just there to help. well with all of my stupid
rambling said and done i present to you.............Advice (FLCL version)!!!!!!!

Tuning: Standard (low to high EADGBe)
The whole song is done with distortion and the melody sections have a very slight wah (i think)

p=pull off
h=hammer on
v=vibrato
~=hold/let ring

\=slide down
x=scratch, mute or whatever you call it

^the highest notes in each chord arent necessary (you could play them like 6 and 3  but 
really think they sound better with all three notes) the chords at the end are quite 
ive only placed a space between then so theyd be easier to read.

NOTE: GUITAR 2 PLAYS THE SECOND PART OF THE INTRO BEHIND THE SOLOS AND PLAYS THE BRIDGE BEHIND
      THE MELODY SECTIONS!!!!

                                         ^this part may require some explanation
                                          when you bend the 8 to 9, you continue
                                          holding that slight bend while you pick 886,
                                          release while you slide to 11. when you get to 11
                                          give it a little extra boost with another
                                          little bend. as for the 11, 12b13 you
                                          continue to hold the 12b13 while picking
                                          the extra 11's then slide out.

  ^more explanation ^_^ (i know you hate it but in
   some cases it's needed) see where ive tabbed
   "15p13p12"? ive only written it 4 times. in the
   acctual song its played ^11 times^ before you play
        "15p12 15p12" i only did this to conserve space. The "15p12 15p12"s are extremely fast and
   almost sound like part of the "15p3p12"s.

 ^this is a little tough almost every note in this set is graced
  i didnt think i should put grace marks over all of them so i put them
  on the most difficult to hear: the bend release pull off combo "21b23r21p19"
  is extremely quick and the release pull off is done in one really fast motion
  so it ends up ^sounding^ like 21b23p19 with no release. the way to get
  this is to do the release pull off in one super fast motion so that the
  release gets almost no sound. the other grace notes are little notes in
  between phrases and may be difficult to hear.

 ^the 7\3/7 isnt a quick slide. each note     ^no releasing on the 15b16b17 all you do
  is held ^ever so slightly^ before you        is bend to 16, pick, then bend to 17, pick
  slide into the next.                         basically a gradual bend while picking.

  and cross-ring with the others.

 ^ok this part is INSANELY FAST and there was no way for me to insert break points so the best
  way you should go about handling this is to listen really hard for the lower "14p11"s to come
  up and take each part on its own then work them together. see that big long set of
  "14p11h14p11...etc." in the middle? there are way more "14p11h14..." than i listed there was
  just no way for me to count them all so youll have to try and listen really hard and figure
  it out on your own (sorry about that). the same thing goes for the slightly shorter set of
  "14p11h14p11..." after it. in truth the second set IS shorter than the second (if that
  provides any conselation). fortunately, the first two "14p11"s are the right amount and all
  of the "15 12 things" are too. depending on your browser this section might appear messed up
  because i was so pressed for space here. if it appears messed up see the "fixed versions"
  section at the end of the tab.

 ^the very first 20 here isnt acctually picked what it is, is a slide out from the
  20b picked in the last set. the ^last two^ "18b20"s are done by quickly releasing
  the second to the last then quickly re-bending and instantly releasing it. one thing
  to remember is the release on the second to last "18b20" isnt acctually heard so
  your basically just re-bending the note then realeasing it.

 ^all of the first 3 "16b17"s are re-bends (meaning you bend then up from thier normal pitch
  each time with sounding the release) the scratch (or whatever you call it) is extremely
  quiet and subtle so youll have to listen closely to hear it (or you could just ignore it^_^)
  the "0" on the end is instantly after the "20*" and may be difficult to hear.(you could also
  ignore that too if you want)

 ^ this part is almost impossble to tab all it really is, is tons of picksliding.
  at around 1:15 i didnt hear anymore picksliding and picked up on the scratches
   the srcatches should be muted heavily around the 7th fret with your whole left
   hand so you get a fat, dead, chunky sound rather than a harmonic. theres also more
   scratches than listed but scince its all the same why waste space? the "17b19"s
   start at the ^very^ end of 1:18 so close that it might acctually change to 1:19
   when it starts so i makred 1:19.

  the bridge behind every melody section. both guitars are
  playing these parts at the same time.

  break.

 ^OK this might be the only commentary that is acctually nescessary to get the sound right
  in truth i know these sounds are really done with feedback and a tremolo effect but if
  you dont have a tremolo effect you can immitate the sound by hammering on the 13th fret,
  "A" string with your left hand. and with your right hand,repeatedly flip the toggle switch on
  your guitar from the bridge pickups (the very back) to the neck pickups (the very front) as
  fast as you can. constantly flip the toggle switch back and fouth between the bridge and
  neck positions as fast as you can while hammering on the notes with your left hand. hit
  each note only once and let each note ring for about 2-3 seconds (after a little while youll
  get a feel for how it sounds)

  "15b16b17" and the release on the 21b22r is
  very slight and may be somewhat difficult to hear.
