Tabbed by: [travis]





December 28, 2009:
***R.I.P. Jimmy "The R.E.V." Sullivan. You will be miss. Amazing drummer, and a 
talented musician.***






*I was playing along with this song, and it's definently tuned down to Db.

*I tabbed this all by ear.

*The solo is almost dead on. It's typical sweeps that Syn always uses.

*********************
*********************

Update 1 (Oct. 14, 2008 9:00pm):

I fixed up this tab. I fixed the "Pre Chorus" part, and I
made the solo much easier. I also fixed the interlude after the
solo, because the chords were way off. The rhythm for the intro,
and during the 2nd half solo, are fixed also. I still don't have
the rhythm guitar during the first half solo, but some of you
guys have given me some good versions of that, but I'm not sure
about them.

This is all still tabbed out by ear.

*********************
*********************

Update 2 (May 27, 2009 10:48pm):

I finally tabbed out the rhythym guitar for the first half
of the guitar solo. Thanks to all you guys who gave me different
ideas for that part, and now I finally tabbed it out. Sorry it took
me a while to update it, I had a whole bunch of other tabs I've been
putting up, at least 30 or so.

-------[travis]-------

*********************************
*********************************

Update #3 (Sept. 5, 2009 10:45am):

I fixed the intro lead. I had a 12th fret on the Gb string, but it really
should be the 10th fret on the Bb string. So that's good to go. Everything else
is still the same.

*********************************
*********************************


Tuning: Drop D, down half step (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) (low to high)


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


Legend:

b = bend
h = hammer on
p = pull off
... = palm mute
/ = slide down
\ = slide up
x = muffled string (lightly mute with your fret hand)
1 = full step bend
.5 = half step bend
1.5 = one and a half step bend
() = bring bent note to normal / note not picked
___ = hold bend
~ = vibrato / ring
h/ = pick once then slide
p\ = pick once then slide

*************************************************************
*The numbers above the b's are the steps you bend that note.*
*************************************************************

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Intro: The bends for this part only are gradual bends, meaning bend slowly. Syn really 
the whammy
       bar up on all the notes, but for those of you who don't have a whammy bar, you 
just bend
       the note making it sound the same. Syn also pushes down on the whammy bar, 
after each
       of the bends. If you need more help on this, send me a message on my profile, or 
a comment.

Since no body has looked at this yet, I found a mistake I made. During the interlude it should be these chords (these are just the bass notes of the chords you'll hit on the low Db string.):

Just listen for rhythm. This is for the interlude (After the solo):
Db|-0-3-5-7-8---3-5-7-8-7-8-10-|

Thanks. I kept playing small parts of the solo over, and over, and over again, until it sounded right. For the first half of the solo, it was easy because Syn likes to use the same arpeggios in most of his solos. But thanks again for the comment.
