Atreyu
My Fork in the Road (Your Knife in My Back)
A Deathgrip on Yesterday
Drop C Tuning

I've tabbed this song for one guitar even though it requires 2.

Intro [0:00-0:37] (3X)

All the bends have a slight bit of pinch harmonic on them. Notes in <> are
harmonics. m denotes a palm muted note...and believe me...there are plenty.
Atreyu just kinda randomly throws them into the song in sets. There are 7
in each riff except for the last riff which is played on the fourth time.

208 BPM

Chorus: [1:23-1:32] (1x)

There's a slight variation this time...Travis fires off some
knuckle children...I mean...quick palm muted notes on the first
part of the chorus. There may be an artificial harmonic in
there somewhere near the end too, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

There's a pretty big variation here...same chords and all, but a
few differences.

It's getting pretty late. I'll finish this Wednesday when I don't have class. I'm not 
how accurate it is. It sounds alright to me, but who knows. At least it'll give others 
something to work with.

I know there are two guitars in the intro...that's why the tab specifically says "This song is played by two guitars but I've tabbed it for one." Also...I didn't know you couldn't resume on the tab...on mxtabs.net you can. This was like my first tab on UG...and probably my 5th tab ever...so...yeah, sorry.
