         Title : A Bid Farewell
        Artist : Killswitch Engage
         Album : The End of Heartache
  Copyright (c): (Road Runner Records) (2004)
        Version: 1.0
           Date: 7/18/2004
Transcribed by : sumpm1 
        Tuning : C G C F A D (Drop C)

  Release Notes:Some of these riffs will really give your hand a stretch.
		Almost every Riff has 2 guitars at the same time. If you
		see 2 staffs connected, or 3 staffs connected, that means
		there is 3 guitars for that part. The top staff is Gtr 1,
		next down is Gtr 2 etc.....

		If you see more than one version tab of this song, consider
		mine to be correct and the other to be crap. I wouldn't 
		have to tab songs that have already been tabbed if people
		would submit complete and correct tabs. Now go tear it up.
