This is an arrangement for 1 guitar/singer. I personally fingerpick
this song so playing arppegios and singing is very easy for me. It
is possible to play it with a pick if youre that coordinated. This
isnt the note-for-note version of the song. Its just close enough
for it to be obvious that its Fiction by Avenged Sevenfold. Feel
free to leave comments with corrections. Ill try yours out and, if
i think it sounds good, ill edit it in.

Chords (how i voice them)
-chord-EADGBE
-C-----X32010
-Csus2-X35533
-Dm----XX0231
-Em----022000
-F-----133211
-Fm----133111

For the intro ,to simulate piano backing, i just barre
a Cmaj chord and play a bass note or 2 in between the
main melody notes. Melody notes have = around them incase
you just wanna play them by themselves. Heres what it
kind of looks like.

Here are the various piano fills on guitar in between
lyric phrases. This was made assuming that the guitarrist
is also singing so any piano fills done while singing
arent here.

For the instrumental section, its basically a descending bass line with a
slightly alternating melody. Kind of hard to hear but i think this is it.
The bass notes are in ='s. I added 2 octaves of bass notes in case you can
make that stretch. Just pick and choose which bass note you feel most
comfortable with.
