		       BLACKENED - Metallica - 1988

Tuning: Standard (eBGDAE)

This is a great song. I reckon Metallica's 5th best, after
Master of Puppets, One, Fade to Black & Enter Sandman.
The Main Riff is very fast picked and the open E is barely
audible. I have not marked the palm-mutes, but it is pretty 
obvious where they are. The solo is super hard and you almost
need to as good as Kirk to play it ;) The main reason I tabbed
this song is because I checked almost EVERY tab of Blackened on
this AND other sites and the tabs were fairly inaccurate and
corner-cut. I know mine is THE BEST Blackened tab. Please rate.
