This is the tab technically taken from the rehearsals DVD but since the album is pretty raw It’s pretty much the same as the album version except for at two points: the pre-chorus and the bridge 2 – I’ll tab the album parts for these later if I can figure them out!.For the intro a whammy pedal is used to add a harmony note of a fifth above to the dry signal but I’ve tabbed this for guitar also, so ignore the tab under the intro if you’re using one. The bends are also easily executed with the slackness of the strings due to the low tuning. I’m pretty sure it’s all there though I’ve still to add the palm muting but it’s pretty easy to figure out. Rock on
    
Gtr 1: Hetfield (dropped C tuning)
Gtr 2: Hammet (dropped C tuning) 

Tuning:

6=C  3=F
5=G  2=A
4=C  1=D

Key:
 X      = mute string(s)
(Y)     = optional note
 Y^(Z)  = bend up to note in bracket
 Y^(Z)Y = bend up to note in bracket then back down to original
 P.M    = palm mute
 *||    = repeat bars between asterisks
 ~      = vibrato
N.H     = natural harmonic
