Artist: Avenged Sevenfold
Album: Sounding The Seventh Trumpet
Song: An Epic of time Wasted
Email: rexxdoggy@yahoo.com

Yeah I saw that only one person tabbed this song out. It was a pretty good
tab, but he left some stuff out. So I decided to tab out the song and everything
he left out. So yeah, I also give credit for this tab to the other guy who tabbed
this song out, Matt, 'cause I used his structure for mine.

Tuning: DADGBE

Basic Keys:
Pm - palm mute
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
<6> - harmonic
P - pull of
h - hammer on
x - muted string
~ - vibrato

(There are two guitars, but most of the time they play the same riffs. I'll
 label the riffs that where the guitars are different. And also, the question
 marks after some statements just mean that I don't know the right term for
 the riff)
