                           "Synyster Gates Lesson" --- Avenged Sevenfold
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: [travis]






***December 28, 2009: R.I.P. Jimmy "The R.E.V." Sullivan. You will be missed. ****













Tuning: Drop D (D A D G B E) low to high
        [You don't have to tune to D,
         but obviously Syn tunes to D
         all the time.]


*This tab is for the awesome "Sweep picking solo" Synyster Gates shows
you on a video on youtube. It's the video were Syn shows you a couple
of tips, on how to play like him. Some of the vids are based on dive bombs,
sweep picking, Beast and the Harlot intro, and soloing strategies.

*Search "Synyster Gates lesson," on youtube.com. Click on the vid that
says "Sweep Picking Lesson." The vid is from "Total Guitar Television."


**********************************

Key: F Major (F G A Bb C D E F) 



*Most of Avenged Sevenfold's songs are in the key of 
 F Major (F G A Bb C D E F), and this "solo" is in 
 the key of F Major.

*The only songs of Avenged Sevenfold that are in different
 keys are: "Burn It Down" C Major (C D E F G A B C), but 
 for the Intro Duel, and the Main Riff, but when it goes into
 the Chorus, it's back to F Major. "Dear God:" G Major (G A B C D E F# G).


***********************************
Legend:

h = hammer on
p = pull off
~ = vibrato


Fingering:

1 = index finger
2 = middle finger
3 = ring finger
4 = pinkie finger


Chords you can play before the solo.

Yeah, Syn usually uses the same arpeggio, like in "Bat Country," and "Wicked End." He also uses it on two songs on the
new record.
