Avenged Sevenfold - Nightmare tab version 7

Here is the complete tab of Nightmare by Avenged Sevenfold. Did it mostly by ear.
The two solos are done by ear and I am 99% sure that they are completely accurate.
I spent hours making sure it was right so here you go and please rate it.



This song is played in Drop D for every guitar.
