                          BATTERY by Metallica
	           From the album "Master of Puppets"

	There's about half a dozen guitar parts on the intro where Jaymz
 layered acoustics, steel strings, spanish guitars and god knows what else.
 One acoustic plays riff  1 and the rest of the layered guitars play along
 the lines of riff 2 (I Think)

Acoustic Riff 1

Start with Acoustic Riff 1 once and then while that keeps playing Gtr II plays

 Riff 2  Riff 2b Riff2  Riff2

Then the electrics come crashing in:-

    E5                E5 E5 F5         Gmaj7                     G5

While 2 other electrics play Riffs 2 and 2b
This continues for several bars and then

     Weak are ripped  and  torn   away

Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hipnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay


With Fill 1

E5     			       C5
Smashing through the boundrys, lunacy has found me
	     F5 F5 F#/Eb
Cannot stop the battery

Riff 3


With Fill 1

E5			C5
Pounding out agression, turned into obsession
	     F5 F5 F#/Eb
Cannot stop the battery

Riff 3 (first 2 bars)

E5              B5      G5	    F#/Eb
Cannot kill the family, battery has grounded me

Riff 3 (first 3 bars)|
		     |
Bb5 F5 E5	     |  	Play this several
Bat-ter-y 	     |      times and then back to the next verse

verses

Crushing all decievers, mashing non-believers
Never ending potency
Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity

Chorus

Circle of destruction, hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, dominating flurry
We create the battery
