Metallica - Track 8 - Nothing Else Matters (Studio and S & M version)

This is the 'better' version of Nothing Else Matters. Anyone who has seen or 
heard the S & M concert will notice the split section showing how they performed 
both the live concert and the studio version of the song with both guitar pieces 
tabbed. When there are two guitars being played at the same time, the S & M 
piece will already be put in it without the need of an extra fill.

If you saw the older piece I added for Nothing Else Matters you will notice the 
addition of abetter bar system and the use of additional parts of the song I've 
labelled as 'Fills'. The split system between the parts where there are two 
guitars playing at once, has been labelledas either 'Guitar 1' or 'Guitar 2' 
and the member who plays that part has been noted.

Next to the name of the player, there will be a label reading 'Picked', 'Finger 
Picked' or 'Either'. These refer to what right hand technique the player is 
using. Note that 'Picked' refers to the use of a Plectrum or 'Pick'. Also, above 
each section is the timing for both versions of the song due to new Olga 
restrictions. For the time on S & M, I've labelled theintro beginning at 0:24 
because you can hear the crowd at the beginning, and to write 0:0 would mess up 
the time. I've left out the timing in some of the fills but gave a short 
description of where to play them.

*Underneath* each section of the song, a chord name is labelled for people who 
wish to analyse the song's structure.

Yes, this can easily be played on an Acoustic Guitar.

This tab took a few hours to compile and is pretty close to how Metallica 
play the song.

Also, why not check out my original stuff on myspace and send me an add?

slower. I don't think it's necessary to add the chorus again so it will just 
appear here once with all the fills. Fill # 2, 3 4 and 5 appear here. The first 
time the chorus is played, Fill # 2is played at it's marked position. The second 
time the chorus is played, Fill # 3 and # 4 areboth played. The third and final 
time the chorus is played, Fill # 5 is played (Right beforethe Solo).

Note: The Chords are strummed in the S & M version.

Also note that the chorus changes in length the last time, where the series of 
open D chordsare played 4 times instead of 2.

This part is pretty easy for anyone. It can be played quite easily on Acoustic... 
James andKirk played this entire song on Acoustic. Anyone playing on their own 
should play Guitar 2'spiece.

Look at the bar lines for time referencing. I couldn't work out the slight 
variation of theS & M version. You may get confused knowing that there are 4 
bars in this fill... and only 3 bars in the Interlude part... This is because 
James plays in a different time signature at one point.

After my last attempt at writing the solo, I received many emails from people 
correcting the position of the solo on the fret board. Here's the corrections, 
I won't add any names because there are too many of you :P

Guitar Solo - S & M
Distortion Electric - Kirk (Guitar 1 - Either, Sounds as though it's Picked))
Distortion Electric - James (Guitar 2 - Picked)
S&M: 5:10

This is close to what they played on the S & M version of the song. Anyone who has 
seen the DVD will have noticed that James modified some parts of the solo and saw 
how they were played... They are the fills, added below the Solo. Refer to the 
studio solo for Kirk's rhythm, it will be in same time as the S & M. Yes, I may 
have missed some small bits.

Fill # 7 - S & M (Solo)
Distortion Electric - James (Guitar 2 - Picked)

There are a few ways this addition could be played, but here is the closest version 
I managed to work out. There are 2 ways to play it, you might find one of them easier.

1.
e|-12p10-12p10-12p10-12p10-|-12p10-12p10-12p10-12p10-12p10-12--12-12-12~~|

Fill #8 - S & M (Solo)
Distortion Electric - James (Guitar 2 - Picked)

This part didn't change much, but includes a few slides and the beginning starts 
off on the 17th fret. The empty space at the end of the second bar is where the 
fill ends and the rest of the solo takes place back towards the top.

Ending - Single Guitar
Clean Electric - Kirk (Guitar 1 - Finger Picked)
Studio: 5:41
S&M: 5:43

The Open String part is played on S & M but not the studio, but here it is anyway. 
If you're playing the studio version then play the parts surrounded by stars.
