band: Trivium
song: detonation
tabbed by: George Williams

*this was in aprils issue of total guitar magazine (i think), so that has been a great
however some small parts were wrong, as i checked the whole tab on guitar pro, and so
should be perfecto! i just take credit for taking the long, arduous task of tabbing this 
thing up and for the small corrections*

        guitar 2   (Matt Heafy)   EADGBE
