MegaDeth - Holy Wars.. The Punishment is Due

     This is probably Dave Mustaine's best solo, I modified this from another tab and
made it more 'printer-friendly'. You will need 24 frets (and I think a tremolo arm) to
play this exactly how Dave plays it, but there are ways around it.

* Note: If you watch the video, Dave plays the last few bars using the 23rd-24th frets
on the B string, but you can play the pattern on the E string if your guitar doesnt have
enough.

** Note: Although I cant tell for sure, it sounds like he finishes the solo with a
Tremolo Dive-Bomb before going into the final verse, you can just hold the bend if you
want.

you're right. in the end, Dave does a slow divebomb on the low E string and then brings it back up
