Hello fellow metal-heads

An excelent song from HammerFall's excelent debut album Glory To The Brave.
The song is pretty easy, except the main riff's kinky timing, and the 3rd
verse require some long and/or stretchy fingers. (like Oskar's) I think my
transcription should be correct, even the solo and the timing, but if you
got any doubts, suggestions or whatever, don't hesitate to contact me.

A metalheart is hard to tear apart!
Tom
