                            "Seize the Day" - Avenged Sevenfold
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tabbed by: [travis]


***December 28, 2009: R.I.P. Jimmy "The R.E.V." Sullivan. You will be missed. ****





*This is the complete official solo for Seize the Day, and the ending solo.*
 This is my first tab I'm posting up on this site. Hope it works out for you.


*Update 1 (Dec. 18, 2008 12:15pm):
 I had to fix some mistakes that you guys had pointed out. Some of you where asking
 me what key this solo is in. The top string should be D, because you're going to
 play the rhythm part after the solo of course. I also made this tab easier to read,
 because the original version was my first tab ever, and it was really hard to read.
 This is all still the same notes as the previous version, I just fixed up the tab, 
 and made it easier to read the bends.



**Thanks to everyone for making this tab reach 40000+ hits. (Dec. 18, 2008)**

**Wow. Thanks again to everyone for making this tab now reach 86000+ hits. (April 20, 2009)

**Thanks once and again to everyone for making this tab now reach 90000+ hits. (May 2, 2009)



Tuning: D A D G B E



Key: F Major (F G A Bb C D E F)


Legend:

h = hammer on
p = pull off
b = bend
__ = hold bend
() = bring bent note back to normal
1 = whole step bend
.5 = half step bend
1.5 = step and a half bend
h/ = pick once
p\ = pick once
h/p\ = pick once
~ = vibrato
* = pinch harmonic
T = tap


This solo contains a lot of bends so practice on these bends. Good luck.



Guitar 1: hold the bend, and then raise up the bend a whole step, which is going
          to make the 17th fret sound like the 20th fret.

Outro:

Guitar 1: The numbers in the ()s are how many times you tap that phrase.
