                        This Day We Fight! - Megadeth
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Chris Rizzo 

Email: chrisrizzo@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard. The whole album is in standard according to Dave M.

Special Notes: There is a lot of fast tremolo picking in this song. 


Riff 1: 

Fast trem picking required. With Ver 2 I've made 
some changes to this which I think make them more accurate.

Riff 3: Pre Chorus 

** VERSION #1 EASIER & how it seems to be played on the recording **

Instead of tremelo picking like mad, this one uses pull offs and hammer ons, 
and is what I hear played on the album when slowed down. For the version I 
play because it's harder, more fun, and to me sounds a bit better see below.

Riff 3: Pre Chorus 

** VERSION #2 SUPER HARD **

This requires very fast relentless tremolo picking. No resting or pausing 
between notes. This is particularly hard when doing the string skips. Be 
sure to strike the notes on the 7th fret strongly to accent.

Pretty solid. Oh and that open E that you think is tuned down a half step: Chris Broderick uses a 7 string guitar. That's probably how they were able to hit the low note.

Asterix. Thanks for checking out my tab. I was thinking about the 7 string too, but a couple things I found out:

Mustaine made Broderick use a 6 string on the album. Mustaine says all songs are in standard. Turns out the chord is played at position 6 on the fretboard and so I'm hearing the E flat on the A string. Mustaine also frets the 6the fret on the E string at the same time so the note sounds a lot lower than it is. Good trick!

PS -- I just updated the tab with some fixes and improvements which should be approved in a day or two.
