I was aimlessly wandering around on youtube and I came around this 
performance from Matt Heafy that he did on a rooftop in paris and was very
impressed from what I saw and heard. After about a dozen or so times of
watching Matt play this song I also realized that this was a fairly
simple song. If you're unsure about what video I'm speaking of, the link is:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgZck6zmCCQ

It maybe a little tough for beginners, due to all the little riffs and
timing, but it's honestly not that hard after some persistent practicing.
If you have any problems with the hitting the bass notes to the chords,
rhythm, or when to palm mute, just watch the video in the link I gave you 
and it should help a lot. Once you've made your final judgement of the tab, 
please rate and comment.

Tab Symbols:

        V = Vibrato
        H = Hammer-on
        / = Slide
        . = Palm Mute
(Writing) = These are just my own personal notes for the reader. I recommend
            looking at them for specifics. Hopefully they help.

 So selfishly unaware to the things
 Resistance is fuel into my well-being
 I feel my heart leaking

And that should be that for the acoustic version of Built To Fall by 
Trivium. I do apalogize if some of the chords don't sync up exactly with
the lyrics. What else could I say about that. I tried. As I've stated 
before, please rate and comment my tab when you have made your final
judgement. And, if you liked this tab, feel free to stop by my profile page

In the verse what am I playing for the C? Is it just an open C? or A barred C? or a power chord C?

Thanks

If you refer back to the chord chat I provided, it's the open one being palm muted.
