As I Lay Dying - Forsaken
Tabbed by: rcw110131

Tuning: Drop D (DADGBE)
(yes, I know AILD usually play in Drop C, but many songs on their new album
are in Drop D, and even in Eb Standard on Within Destruction)

Guitar I - Left Guitar
Guitar II - Right Guitar
Guitar III - Extra Guitar (Center)


Aside from towards the end where I think there's some tapping parts in the
break and final chorus, this tab should be 100% correct.  I can't make those 
parts out right now, but I if and when I do, I'll update this tab to make the
tab completely correct.  And how do I know the rest is correct?  Well, just
understand that I wouldn't waste my time spending many hours analyzing a song
note per note by slowing it down in Adobe Audition and then submit a tab that
isn't completely correct. So on that note, enjoy/rate/comment!!!  :)


h - hammer-on
p - pull-off
\ - slide down
/ - slide up
* - mute string (ie. stop note(s) from ringing)

-Intro- (0:00 - 0:55)

****** I'm pretty sure there are 3 guitars tremolo picking here, so to save
       space I'm putting all 3 into one tab....if you want you can even play
       it this way, it's just [obviously] much more difficult than what they
       probably did on the album (record 3 guitars separately and just layer
       them on top of one another)
