    • Removed uneccessary notes that are not actually played
    • Changed playing the A note on the G string to the D string on "Acoustic II" and "Harmony II" for more ease of playing and it's how it's actually played

  • This will either fix the lyrics problem or make it worse. I don't know; I'm a cheapskate and use TuxGuitar

  • I made the entire tab from scratch. I based it on the original song, this tab, other tabs online and the individual instrument tracks found on youtube.
    I corrected some riffs (such as the riff after the solo), corrected the bass track (mainly in the interlude) and added backing vocals. Theres also 1 less guitar track, no need for 5 guitars. The solo is almost exacly the same as before, except for the bend at bar 133. Also, bar 162 IS 7/8, I listened to the original drum track. This tab took 3 days to make.

  • I believe I have gotten m.127 on the drums corrected.

    I think I just had the snare hits as a placeholder to get the rhythm, and forgot to finish correcting that measure before submitting last time.

  • Corrected bass. Fixed more of the guitars, minor tweaks in all other tracks.

  • 100% corrected drums. They are literally as-recorded. Every nuance from the recording is there. If Lars missed a hit, it's missed in Songsterr.

    Also, fixed measure 162 (previously a 4/4 measure). Tweaked the last 4 measures as well (got rid of the incorrect rests).
    Jul 16, 2014 by Maian
  • maxed master volume.
    Apr 19, 2014 by soulwayne
  • assigned a different channel for each track to correct the bass tuning without creating other errors (I hope)
    Apr 06, 2014 by soulwayne
  • new attempt to change Cliff's instrument (bug...)
    Apr 04, 2014 by soulwayne
  • fixed Cliff Burton's instrument which was changed to guitar distortion for some obscure reason.
    Apr 04, 2014 by soulwayne
  • New tab.
    New drum and bass tracks (i hope these are more accurate)
    changed 2nd tempo (190->193 bpm),
    splited the measure before the interlude to keep the same tempo,
    added sections and lyrics,
    changed vocals instrument (sawtooth->baritone sax),
    added 3rd electric guitar harmony.
    (I know some elements remain to be corrected on the guitar tracks)
    Apr 03, 2014 by soulwayne
