Metallica - The Lord Of Summer tab

Tempo = 175

Just wanted to get a quick tab out now, because i know a lot of people want to learn 
this song already. I'm still working on the tab, but I decided to get the main riff and the 
intro out straight away.

When they release the live recording and i'm not listening to it through somebody's 
phone, i'll improve many of the mistakes.

Listen to the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgkF-PxlcmE
