(At the end of the 4th time:)
 “Ah”

(On the 7th time, the lyrics come in:)
“My mother was a witch,
She was burned alive,
Thankless little bitch,
For the tears I cried,
Take her down now,
Don’t want to see her face,
Blistered & Burnt,
Can’t hide my disgrace.”

[Solo]
The 1st one is the right way to play it but it is also the hardest. For right-handed (vise-versa for leftys!),
this is the technique you should use unless you have freakishly hands or long fingers:
You must use your left hand to finger-tap the 5th & 8th frets for the 1st line
(same for 9th & 6th & then 10th & 7th frets in the next few lines).
Then use your right hand to finger-tap the 12th fret (same goes for 13th & 14th in the few lines).
This may cause you to drop your pick so it’s recommended that you use any finger asides 
your index & your thumb & your baby finger (unless you have a freakishly strong baby finger).

Very good tab, but you miss some of the solo, and there are many flaws. Also you miss the other pre-solo riff, played 4
times! :O Therefor I rate this tab 4. Pretty good! =)

There is another pre-solo riff, it's just that DIAMOND HEAD plays it, and METALLICA doesn't.
