Artist: Judas Priest
Song: "Diamonds And Rust" written by Joan Baez as performed live on the concert in 
Academy, London 19.12.2001
From the album "Live In London" (2002)
Tabbed by Nailed Reaper (reap@front.ru)

I'm sorry for any errors and if you know how to play it right - please mail me.

Well, here's the one of the best rock-covers at all and I want to transcribe it.
Unfortunately, I haven't heard original slow version that has been released as bonus 
on "Rocka Rolla".
That's why I'm basing on live version from "Live In London" with Ripper Owens on vocals.
Also I have live version of this song on "Angel Of Retribution" bonus DVD - it is from 
tour with Rob Halford.
It's the same, but there are more verses and on the second verses section Glenn is 
some lead part on the same chords.
Nevertheless, on the both version music is identical. Reunion version is just a bit longer.
Let's try!!!

~ - vibrato
h - hammer on
\ - slide down
. - palm mute

Tune down 1 whole step.

you could be right on the other vesions, but from the Live in Japan version i am 100% positive this song is standard flat tuning, 1/2 step down, not 1 full step down, but other than that looks like a great tab.
