Bat Country by Avenged Sevenfold From the album City Of Evil (2005) Written by M. Shadows and The Rev All rights belong to their respective owners Tabbed by Jaakko Karppinen Tuning: Drop D (DADG) I have based this tab on the bass track and live performances you can find in Youtube, so it should be pretty much 100% correct. I highly recommend to play this song with a pick (it would take a lot of stamina to play with fingers). Johnny plays this song with a bit of distorted tone; he doesn't tend to use any distortion box, he just turns the gain up a bit. On the interlude sections play with clean tone and apply some chorus effect if possible. Bass Track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCb7AyKco1I Best Live Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrxQSsBigXE NOTE: All of those "121212" notes are 12's, not 1's or 2's. Intro (This bar seems a bit longer than the others, because of the one "extra" note on that very fast section. But time wise it is as long as the others) ||------------------------------------------------------------------------|| ||-o--------------------------------------------------------------------o-||
