Afi - Killing Lights guitar tab

Song: The Killing Lights

Artist: AFI

Album: Decemberunderground (2006)

Tabbed by: dont_fake_it

Tuning: Standard

I saw there were some tabs for this song in flat tuning, so I posted this in standard

because that’s how I figured it out, and it’s much easier. For me, at least. I tabbed it with

two guitars, but it’s fairly easy to play with one also. I’m about 95% sure most of this is right...
