band: Trivium
song: detonation
tabbed by: George Williams

*this was in aprils issue of total guitar magazine (i think), so that has been a great
however some small parts were wrong, as i checked the whole tab on guitar pro, and so
should be perfecto! i just take credit for taking the long, arduous task of tabbing this 
thing up and for the small corrections*

tuning: guitar 1 (Corey Beaulieu) EADGBE
        guitar 2   (Matt Heafy)   EADGBE

bpm: 140

                8                                     4

legend:

| h       hammer on
| p       pull off
| /       slide up
