Avenged Sevenfold - The Art Of Subconscious Illusion tab

  Song - ART OF SUBCONSCIOUS ILLUSION
Artist - Avenged Sevenfold
 Album - Sounding The Seventh Trumpet


        Decided to learn this song a few weeks ago, and all the tabs had
so many mistakes, that I decided to tab it out myself.

Bpm: 

^   = up pick
v   = down pick
\\\ = pick scrape
.   = palm mute
/   = slide up
h   = hammer-on
p   = pull-off
*   = harmonic

      SO CONFUSED!

^Repeating this part is weird, because on the second time through, they play the end of that
 second measure rushed & off time. It sounds sloppy, but both tracks do that, so it seems as
 if that's how it was meant to be. (I tabbed it on-time, and you can rush/sloppy-
it-up if you wish)

In the third measure, one track does a good harmonic while the other
track completely misses it (it sounds like a palmmuted open B)




1:39 - For the rest of the song, the two guitars play the exact same thing. 
       So, i'll only have a "Guitar 1" tabbed.
