Hi guys!
This is my first tab. Dear God by Avenged Sevenfold! :)
I've been using UG ever since I started playing guitar 5 years ago so
I though I could give something back.
Hope it helps! :)

Intro: Clean guitar
The intro plays twice before the verse starts. Both times with a dfferent ending.   



Main part of intro:
       G             D           Em         Bm        C          G        D

    G    D       Em

   Dear God, the only thing I

   ask of you is to hold her when I'm


    G                   D
    
   not aorund, when I'm much too far away.


    G      D          Em  

   We all need that person who can


     Bm                   C

   be true to you. But I left her when I


    G             D

   found her and now I'd wish stayed.


            C              D

   Cus I'm lonely and I'm tired. I'm


    Bsus4        Em             Bsus4= D-2   Em= D-3  (Only place in the song
                                       A-5       A-5   where this weird Em is used)
   missing you again                   F-4       F-4
                                       C-4       C-2  (Not sure if it's an Em,
                                       G-2       G-2   but I think so)

That's it! There's a lot more than only this but I think this is the most important.
One can play the whole song with only one guitar except for "Bridge Part 1".

I don't see where you wanna get with that comment. If you think it's bad I would be more than glad to get constructive feedack, but negative comments without purpose you can keep to yourself.
