Trivium - And Sadness Will Sear
Recorded on "The Crusade" 
Composed by Matt Heafy
tabbed by jjhand

I saw that a few tabs tried this song but couldn't get the main riff
or solo right. I played it on my 7 string and this sounds on the money.
This was partially written by metalicatrivium.

Hey, great tab man.
But I think your sweeps at the end of the solo are off a bit.
I don't think they're sixes. They might be 4/5 up and 3 downs.

How is this 5 stars the solo cant be anymore wrong. I learned it by ear note for note and you got it almost completely wrong. Especially that little run in the beginning.

I think the votes speak for themselves, and the pitches are correct IF you are tuned to 7 string standard tuning.
