ZAKK WYLDE - Darkest Hour SOLO (Book of Shadows II)


In my opinion, one of the most magnificent solos he'd written, and he has written quite a lot.
If you see a technical mistake, just mention it in the comment section..It's my first tab so please be kind :)
Rock on! \m/

Zakk refers to this first bend in the next section as a Gary Moore thing, 
so im gonna put a "gmb" instead of "b". 
Your goal string is e, but you catch a b string with it,
so to make it scream...torture it a bit:

______________________________________________________________________________________________
Double the speed of the next section..you can trill 5-7-9 and 6-7-9 it if you have weak hands,
but Zakk picks all of them. Manroot domination.

______________________________________________________________________________________________
You trill between 10 and 12 in the next section..
Do a hammer on and pull-off about 2 times where the "t" is, that's what "x2" stands for.
I didn't think of a better way to put it.

Double the speed in the next part. It's a bit harder, reaching shred oblivion.
Sweeping through two strings is how zakk does it.
