Tuning: Standard (low to high EADGBe)

Guitar 1: James Hetfield, Distorted Electric
Guitar 2: Kirk Hammett, Distorted Electric

Legend: p.m.= Palm Mute. Each '.' under the tab means you should mute that note.

OK, this is my edited tab which contains the stuff I got wrong and posted
corrections of in the comment box previously. This is nice and easy, for a
Metallica song, so if you're a beginner this is a great one to learn. Have
a good time playing it.

When playing live, James and Kirk both play Guitar 2's bit of Part 1, then James 
to Guitar 1's bit for Part 2. Get a video of them playing it live and you'll understand what I mean.


Both Guitars play Guitar 1's part of Verse/Lead Interlude as before.
Chorus.

Outro: (This part isn't in proper bar spacing because it's 1:48 a.m. and I'm tired.)
  Guitar 1                x as many as you like

B|o-----------------------o|When playing live, James often plays this part

e|-------------------------|After doing this once or twice, Kirk generally
B|o-----------------------o|just goes a bit crazy, playing in the E minor
G|-------------------------|pentatonic with lots of big bends, wah and
