Metallica - Nothing Else Matters tab

  This is my version of this tab. I've previousely used other tabs to help me and I
it out myself. Most people get it wrong but if you listen really carefully at the song and
to each note being played, you will see that my tab is correct. People say that I can 
this song perfectly.

\  - Slide to required note
h  - Hammer on
p  - Pull off
<> - Harmonics
