                             "Afterlife" solo --- Avenged Sevenfold
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: [travis]








December 28: 2009:
****R.I.P. Jimmy "The R.E.V." Sullivan. You will be miss. ****







1st Update: July 10th, 2008 (9:00 P.M.)

2nd Update: September 30, 2008 (3:45 P.M.)



Tuning: Drop D: D A D G B E (low to high)


Key: F Major (F G A Bb C D E F)


This solo has 32nd notes, and 16th notes all around,
which is what makes this solo hard.


1st Update:  I decided to redo this whole tab, since some people wanted the 
other guitar's melody, and rhythm track as well. 


2nd Update: I had to clean up the last version, because it was basically 
impossible to play. Now, I fixed up the ending part, thanks to the 
recent Guitar World issue with Dragaonforce on the cover. So the last
two bars of this tab are kind of like Guitar World's tab. Everything else
is my version. I didn't copy the rest of the solo from that tab, because
it's just not the correct version to play it. So this way is better.



*I know most of you A7X fans have the DVD that came with the "Avenged Sevenfold"
album, and in the "making of the album," you can see Synyster Gates playing this
solo. On the parts that are on the 18th fret on the B string, Syn originally plays
the 13th fret on the high E string. 



Legend:

h = hammer on
p = pull off
w = wammy bar
b = bend
1 = full step bend
* = harmonic
# = tremelo pick
.5 = half step bend
__ = hold bend
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
hph = pick the phrase once
~ = vibrato
... = palm mute
() = note barely heard, or bring bent note back to normal



This is played behind the whole solo:
Guitars 3 and 4: Listen for the rhythm of each chord.
