         Title : Declaration
        Artist : Killswitch Engage
         Album : The End of Heartache
   Record Label: Road Runner Records
           Date: 7/14/2004
Transcribed by : sumpm1 
        Tuning : B F# D A E B

 Release Notes : This baby was pretty tough. This is my first tab submitted
                 woohoo.For correct timings, listen to song, I am quite sure
                 that everything is right. As for the tuning, all of the
                 other Killswitch Engage tabs say that they use a Drop C
                 tuning, but I can attest for sure that there are plenty of
                 their songs that go lower than C. This songs is in B.
                 I have never seen KE play live, so I can't say what their
                 actual tuning is, but I have never seen a picture shoot of
                 them, including their newest video with 7 string guitars.
                 It's just a 6 string with standard tuning very low at B.

Your tuning is far too low. This song is played in Drop C. As are all of their other songs. If your new to guitar, then i guess this is a good try. Tune your guitat to Drop C, and play each of your notes a step lower on the fretboard, and I'm sure you will realize your error. Good try though. One trick I use is when I am in doubt, I use examples from other tabs. Like the tuning for example. If all of their songs are done in Drop C, why would this one be at this ungodly low tuning? Keep working at it until you are sure you have a perfectly logical tab.

actually dude, i think the tabber is correct on the tuning, because how are you supposed to play an open note on the sixth string one whole step lower?

its not, mike d does the lower notes, adam and joel play higher up, and killswitch have never used seven strings, what new video? end of heart ache? six strings. rose of sharon? six strings. And there is a bar of 7/8 in the main riff...

roasting aside, the main riff youve tabbed is pretty spot on. and it took me a while before getting it nailed
