Band: DevilDriver
Song:Hold Back The Day
Tabbed By: Michael Stewart
Tuning: Drop C

There might some parts missing or not in perfect order but this basically it.
all the tabs that i found were drop B, but drop C sounds better, and anyways the 
from devildriver say that they use drop c not drop b.

this is a good tab, but i have one correction i see so far: the heavy intro, where it goes 0303030308080707 in power cords, the thirs 3 should be a slide, i dont know exactly from where, but i do know its a slide. so it should be 03030(random number)/0308080707

i watched the music video one guitarist plays that part and the other does the slide. i think he slides from 3 to 7, but i'm not sure
