                HOLY DIVER - KILLSWITCH ENGAGE

GUITAR 1: JOEL STROETZEL  CGCFAD
GUITAR 2: ADAM DUTKIEWICZ CGCFAD
GUITAR 3: OVERDUBBED




***I HAVE CHANGED THE WHOLE SOLO. IT WAS BOLLOCKS BEFORE SO I SAT DOWN AND
FIGURED IT OUT BY SLOWING DOWN THE SONG SO ITS 100% CORRECT :)***




legend:

| b     bend
| r     return
| /     slide up
| \     slide down
| h     hammer on
| p     pull off
| *     pinch harmonic
| ~     tremolo
| ...   palm muted
| x     muted note
| (n)   optional note

THIS TAB TOOK ME AGES TO DO, AND IM PRETTY SURE NEARLY ALL PERFECT. 
THERE ARE SOME PARTS OF THE SOLO WHICH I'M NOT TOO SURE ABOUT, 
BUT THEY ARE IN THE RIGHT SCALE SO JUST WORK WITH THEM, 
AND I WILL CONTINUE WORKING ON THE SOLO...
I HOPE YOU LIKE IT AND PLEASE COMMENT WITH ANY CORRECTIONS U MAY HAVE.
THANKS A LOT =)

p.s. go easy on me if it's bollocks, im only 14 =]
