                             By The Sword - By Slash
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Corey Middleton

This tab is from the Layn rocks concert so it might be different to the album. This was 
way before the album is released  so slash might change some parts of it.
It isn’t 100% correct a couple of notes are wrong in the solo but besides that its right.
Its also my first ever tab ive done so go easy on me.

Excellent. I have no clue about the solo yet as I'm still just learning the song but this is by far the best tab of the song I've seen. Thanks man.

lots of spots seems off, though just barely. The intro/verse is definitely a little off and during the verse, it moves up to the 5th/7th fret.
