Song: Hail to the King Artist: Avenged Sevenfold Album: Hail to the King Tabbed by: dusty125 Tuning: Drop C#(C#G#C#F#A#D#)/Drop Db(DbAbDbGbBbEb) Whichever you prefer. This song just came out today, so I took it upon myself to ear transcribe it. I had a lot of fun tabbing out this song. I hope you enjoy it.

This is such a fun song to play. Hopefully, there aren't too many mistakes, though I think the solo is about 75-90% accurate.
