Tabbed a couple of Metallica songs out for my son earlier today & thought some people here might like them as well. Listen to the song to see how many times to play each riff.

Hey Dan I saw this when you posted it but I didn't think much about it since I've never palyed any Metallica and I know the guys I play with won't play it but the wife started palying this last week with our drummer and I was intrigued.

For the most part the song is easy up until the break where it goes into double time which I beleive starts with Riff 6.

That's a bit faster than anything I have played before any suggestions on getting that down other than practice!

You're right, the double time feel starts with riff 6. That riff is really about feeling. Try playing it slow & make sure you get the two "pedal notes", (open "A" string), in between the notes, then once you get that feeling down, speed it up. I just played it now, and noticed that while I'm slightly palm-muting the strings, I'm also striking the A string even when I'm picking the other notes, but not letting it ring out, so I get a "chunk" sound. The fingering is just index & ring finger on the 5th & 7th frets. Once you memorize the pattern, it falls into place. Practice alittle & you'll get it down. My son's been at it for a few weeks, and can almost play it up to speed with the recording.
Glad you're getting some use out of this tab. 8)

well it wasn't as difficult as I imagined. I was travelling all week and didn't have a guitar with me but when i got home last night at around 11 I decided to actually work on the riff. After about 15 mins or I got it down. didn't play with the record but I'll try that over the weekend we have practice tonight so I won't be able to tonight.

Never listened to alot of Metallica but this song is growing on me. i really like the riffs that come after the solo, really nice chunky groove, and the wife loves Metallica and plays the lead onthis so it might be fun if I get the rhythm down to play it with her and our drummer.

That's cool that your wife can play the leads for this song. I'd love to hear you guys rock this one out! :twisted:

Check out "The Four Horesmen", also from Metallica's 1st album if you like heavy riffs. That one's my favorite. 8)

Yea that would be interesting as we don't really "play" together much. She's really into early Metallica and played Hardcore for many years but she hasn't been playing much heavy music since she got ill she's playing more acoustic type music and is actually going into the studio to record a CD next week.

She has connections to get free studio time for two days and she has another guitar player, bass player and a singer coming in to record with her. I'm not sure but I beleive she wrote all the music also plus lyrics.

She's light years ahead of me in skill level and that's one reason we don't play much together and most of the songs I know she doesn't like and I don't really know and Metallica type songs.

I'll have to download that song and take a listen. do you have a tab for that also?

Wow cnev, sounds like your wife is quite the accomplished guitarist! You must be proud! 8)

Here's a link to The Four Horesmen. I don't have it tabbed out, but if I get some time sometime soon, I'll see what I can do for you. I haven't played these songs in ages, and just tabbed out the two I did recently for my son who's really getting into Metallica now. Good songs I must admit. :twisted:

Hey Dan not for nuthin but I was going to work the fast part of this out with my teacher but after I played this tab (actually a combo of this and justin sandicores) tab with the wife she told me I was playing it wrong..OK she says that about pretty much every thing I play so that was no big deal but i know she was really into Metallica at one time so I deceided to have my teacher tab it out and he did tab it fairly different than what you have.

Riff 1 & 2 - the same

main riff and riff 3 all played in open position (this what she told me I was playing wrong)

Riff 4 and 5 the same although he tabbed out Riff 4 slightly different but played in the same position

Riff 6 - Tabbed that out totally different and it sounds good and much easier to play than what you tabbed. what's missing in your tab though is they play Riff 6 at the beginning of the solo, then go to that chorus part 4 times and then they play Riff 6 on the E and A 4 times and the last time they repeat the ending it doesn't go back to Riff 6 on the A string

If I can remember next week I'll bring it in and make a PDF and send it to you to check out. I'm not saying it's better or worse than what you have but it sounds right to my ears and I think a bit easier to play.

Oh sure, show me up now! See if I ever post a tab again! :evil:

Just kidding cnev! :P :lol:

Please post your tab on here too. Like I said, I haven't played these songs in awhile, so if you have a better way to play it, I'd like to see it. :D

Great song and tons of fun to play :D

One of my goals is to learn some of the more faster guitar parts in Metallica songs: the part right before the guitar solo in this song is a good example of that. There are alot of fast Metallica songs though, so I bet I'll be busy for a LONG time :lol:

Hey Dan I'll PM you the tab I have since I don't really know how to post it here. Trust me I'm not trying to show you up at all..I can't do that.

Steve-O - i think you mean the solo and the rhythm played under the solo that's where it goes into double time. Before that it's just regular straight time.

The rhythm as pretty easy, but kirk's solo is another thing I haven't even attempted that one.

This is really cool that you guys are putting up some heavier music here to compliment the other stuff coming on the site, bravo.

Great song, I hope to some day be able to play No Remorse from that album, its my favorite.

Praaaaaaaaaaaaaaaactice.
