Killswitch Engage - This Is Absolution tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
		  This is Absolution - Killswitch Engage
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kergash
Email: h_bjerkg@live.no

Tuning: Drop C (CGCFAD Low to high)

Aight, so this tab is based on their lessonvideo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28oNLoL42FM).
I've divided the tab into two guitars; Guitar 1 (Adam D) and Guitar 2 (Joel Stroetzel). To make 
things easier to remember, I will use their names for the different parts, instead of Guitar 1 
and Guitar 2. Also, there might be some faults here and there, as sometimes they 
really make it fucking 
hard to see what they're playing, even when its slowed down, though I think I got it fixed what 
you guys pointed out for me now. :)
