Song: Frantic
Artist: Metallica
Album: St. Anger
Transcribed by: Jon (jon@moshpitfury.com)

=============================================================
Here's "Frantic" from Metallica's new album St. Anger.
I'm not sure if this tab is suitable for printing because I
had to make the bars pretty wide.
I believe this tab is very accurate. You'll need to listen
to the recording of the song for the exact timing. If you're
not sure on a timing issue, just play it faster and that will
probably solve it. This song will definitely give you a work
out on speed picking and accuracy. But it's really fun to
play once you've got it!. Please email me with any comments,
questions, or corrections. Thanks and enjoy!!

Tuning is Drop D tuned down 1 whole step (Drop C).

      <---- High to Low ---->
1st=D 2nd=A 3rd=F 4th=C 5th=G 6th=C
============================================================
Key:

PM = Palm Mute
/ = Slide up
\ = Slide down
p = Pull Off
h = Hammer on
^ = Staccato (note/chord played quickly then cut off [muted])

|*---------*|
|*---------*| = Repeat bars between "*" marks once.

Sorry...this tab is pretty off. But the thing is, you probably tabbed by ear. I used the cheap way and used the DVD and the music viedo. I don't know how to tab yet, I can get the placement of the notes but not the actual notes (like I'd have to play it through a lot!) but so yea... good job though. If you want the actual tab, I could send it to you via e-mail. Just send me an e-mail to rock2metallica2004@yahoo.com and I'll send it ASAP.
