Tuning: Drop C#(C#G#C#F#A#D#)/Drop Db(DbAbDbGbBbEb) Whichever you prefer.


This song just came out today, so I took it upon myself to ear transcribe it.
I had a lot of fun tabbing out this song. I hope you enjoy it.
If you have Guitar Pro, please check out my Guitar Pro tab as well.
It will be easier to learn from that.

[Verse 3]

  (Synyster) Play the opening riff 3 times.
  On the third time, instead of ending it normally, you do this.

From there, just do the Chorus twice, and end halfway through the Pre Chorus, and that's all.

This is such a fun song to play. Hopefully, there aren't too many
mistakes, though I think the solo is about 75-90% accurate.

I have updated this tab to be as correct as my Guitar Pro version. It should be quite a bit more accurate.
