                            Venom - Bullet For My Valentine - Venom
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: randomdemon11

Tuning: Drop C
Pace: 145bpm

Hi, guys! The title track is here! Aaaaaand, sadly, it's not as popular as the other tracks before the release
of the full album, probably due to its non-heaviness. The ballad - I'll call it - is quite melodic
and very sing-a-long-y. It's so feel-good, ugh. I learned this song by ear. Initially, I was confused by
the intro (or the main riff) but then I realised the bass is actually playing the lower notes... Oh, me...

The timings shown are for the YouTube official music video, though I'm sure they'll be relatively accurate 
for 
other versions, such as Spotify or other videos. For help with timing, the quavers of each bar are represented
by the "1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & ". Side note: some of the sections have had the spacing
between the "1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &" modified to accommodate for those pesky double digit frets and
keep everything in line. Rhythm is important. For further guidance, I've also added lyrics alongside some of
the sections, so you don't lose track of where you are.

I've put the guitar parts next to each other in their relative sections rather than tabbing all of
guitar 1 and then all of guitar 2 so it'll be easier to see what's going on when. Sometimes, there's an
additional guitar (Guitars 3) for the extra melodies introduced. This is a recorded guitar and was laid
on top of Matt and Padge's guitars.

Enjoy the tab!

Guitar 1 repeats the intro riff twice, but still does the four muted strums at the end

After one run of guitar 1's intro, come in with:

Verse 2 - (1:19 - 1:45) - Same as Verse 1, except at the end, Guitar 1 plays two F power
chords (5,5,5) followed by another two power chords before playing the four muted strums to lead in to the
next chorus. Guitar 2 plays as normal.

Chorus (1:45 - 2:12) - At the very end, instead of leaving the last chord to ring, keep strumming it
and follow through with four muted strums.

            HATE YOU!                HATE YOU!

One thing to note about the last part of the bridge is that the intro riff is played whilst the other two
guitars are holding their final notes. I'm gonna say this can be played by either guitar, but I suspect it was
recorded over the original two guitars. It stops when the "HATE YOU!" bit comes in.





[Chorus] (2:50 - 3:43) - Plays twice, that's why it's a tad longer than the other choruses.
                       Also, at the end of the first playthrough, there are muted F power chords instead of 
un-muted power chords

[Outro] (3:43 - 3:56) - Same as intro, stops on the 2nd fret and echoes into the mysterious darkness that 
                        is the future...

Probably the best and most detailed tab i've ever seen - it's clear and laid out - must rate 5 stars
