                   Break The Silence - Killswitch Engage
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Shreddies147
Email:shawnkade@yahoo.ca

This is the complete, IMO most correct, and probably EASIEST lead guitar's 
tablature for this sick song. 
I do believe this is Adam D's part.
All of this was tabbed by ear, and im pretty sure this is on-the-dot how its played. 
If you have any questions about this tab, or some feedback, please feel free to 
express yourself. ENJOY \m/(>_<)\m/

IM BROWN(SOUTH-ASIAN) AND IM PROUD!!!!!

Tuning:From 6th-1st   CGCFAD

Keep playing the riffs until the song fades away, and I recomend singing along to it:

BREAK THE SILENCE! BREAK THIS SILENCE! BREAK THIS SILENCE! WE'RE ALL ALIIVE!!!!
BREAK THE SILENCE! BREAK THIS SILENCE! BREAK THIS SILENCE! WE'RE ALL ALIIVE!!!!
BREAK THE SILENCE! BREAK THIS SILENCE! BREAK THIS SILENCE! WE'RE ALL ALIIVE!!!!
BREAK THE SILENCE! BREAK THIS SILENCE! BREAK THIS SILENCE! we're all alive.....



THE END =)

THANK YOU THANK YOU I LOVE YOU ALL!
