| This is only the rhythms part of “That Was Just Your Life” by      |
| Metallica. If you’re looking also for the lead parts, find other   |
| tablatures. This is the most I can do because I’m only a           |
| semi-advanced player. Enjoy! :D                                    |

Riff just before the verse, need to move it a half step down.

Instead of
A-----------7------
E-0-0-0-6-7---7-6-7

I think its:
A-----------7------
E-0-0-0-5-6---6-5-6

Nice tab all in all
