August Burns Red – The Blinding Light

Drop C (C G C F A D)

This was done ALL by ear.

I’m trying to do this without Guitar Pro so that as many people as possible can view 
So I’m sure it will be a little confusing at parts. But I will try my best to make it as 
as possible.

Any questions, comments, or requests e-mail me:
poppyben@gmail.com

Legend
S – slide
X – Mute note
V – Vibrato
*(P.H) - Pinch Harmonic
p – pull-off
h – hammer-on

Good Luck!

it should be 12's instead of open chugs at the first part. it's an octave up.

btw, 5*'s from me.
