			     "Almost Easy" - Avenged Sevenfold
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: [travis]
Email: syn_gates_punk14@msn.com


*I was playing along with this song, and it's definently tuned down to Db.

*I tabbed this all by ear.

*The solo is almost dead on. It's typical sweeps that Syn always uses.

*The only part I'm missing is the Rhythm Guitar for the first half
 of the solo. So if anybody knows what the Rhythm Guitar Chords are during
 the first half, then e-mail me the tab, or leave it in the comments of this
 tab. Make sure you tab it out in Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb.

Update 1 (Oct. 14, 2008 9:00pm)=
I fixed up this tab. I fixed the "Pre Chorus" part, and I
made the solo much easier. I also fixed the interlude after the
solo, because the chords were way off. The rhythm for the intro,
and during the 2nd half solo, are fixed also. I still don't have
the rhythm guitar during the first half solo, but some of you
guys have given me some good versions of that, but I'm not sure
about them.

This is all still tabbed out by ear.

Tuning: Drop D, down half step (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) (low to high) [For all Guitars]

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

Legend:

b = bend
h = hammer on
p = pull off
... = palm mute
/ = slide down
\ = slide up
x = muffled string (lightly mute with your fret hand)
1 = full step bend
.5 = half step bend
1.5 = one and a half step bend
() = bring bent note to normal
___ = hold bend
~ = vibrato


*The numbers above the b's are the steps you bend that note.*


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Intro: Bend all of the bends slowly. Syn might be pushing down the wammy bar lightly
the bend
       or he's just releasing the bend slowly. Either way works.
