 Tuning (this tab): Drop D Tab difficulty: intermediate

My Apocalypse - Metallica
Death Magnetic.
Tuning - Drop D
It can be played in any tuning really, in fact whats shown can be played in standard
fine. Don't give me the crap of its this tuning its that tuning...it can be played in any
like i've said before. This is merely the drop D version because people have wanted it 
If you wanna play on your precious standard tuned guitar move everything up 2 frets.
does NOT matter. lol.
If you have a problem with the tuning all i have to say is dont reject just cause your
about how its not the tuning YOU prefer. Look at the notes and play out the notes however
like.
I might have missed a couple palm mutes or so but its easy to map out
Hope you like it!
The Legend is shown at the bottom.

Thats it. If you want to you can also drop to DADGBE and play power chords like you
in standard. I dont really care do whatever you feel is best. This like i said is just the
D perspective. I might've missed a couple palm mutes but they are easily spotted
