Song: Sad But True
Band: Metallica

From what I can see there’s only one bass tab for this song in the world and I don’t
exactly right. I watched tht S&M DVD loads of times (the Metallica one!) and I came up with
Therefore it's an interpretation of the live version. If you want the studio tab, 
"saturns_bassman". You have to play it on a 5 string bass to get the proper sound but I
out one for a 4 string one too.
