The Calamity Tab - Trivium






'The Calamity' - Trivium
As Heard on Trivium's 'Shogun' disc
Tabbed by jjhand

Here's the entire song (fixed a tuning error in some parts). I think all is pretty much 
there, but let me know if something's missing.

7 String Normal Tuning ( lead/solos can get away with normal 6 string tuning)
