Metallica - Mama Said Acoustic tab

    ___________
   /Metallica / This is a very beautiful song that sounds great even when 
  /Mama Said /  it's played acoustic on a old and inferior Spanish 
 /Load      /   guitar..:p It was first when I started doing this tab, I 
/__________/    realized what the lyrics were about, and I admit that I dropped a few tears...


Tuning: Half-step down - but you can play it in standard tuning as well.
