BLITZKRIEG - METALLICA
                     (originally by Blitzkrieg)
This time the explanations come first.

Timing is exact with 8th = 2'-'s except for the solo where 8th = 4'-'s.
The song is in 4/4 but has some measures of 2/4, so some measures
seem shorter than the others. Beware of fret numbers like 12121212.
They don't mean you have to have a very long guitar. They represent
four 16th notes played on the 12th fret. In such cases always take
digits in pairs.Finally, all power chords used are the lower ones
you can have.

Now the song itself:

[CODA] (solo)

For the solo the backing guitar plays power chords which are indicated
above the solo line in single line "tab". Simultaneous guitars have joined
bars. The timing is now different in order to be able to transcribe it
correctly. 8ths = 4'-'s.
Triads are indicated like this: ___3___ or ___ ___ 
                                              3

Now comes the tricky part where you have to use delay effect,
harmonics and a lot of tremolo part. I'll just notate only where
you should fret. Harmonics = <12>. From now on to the end of the song
timing is again 8th = 2'-'s. Backing guitar continues. Tempo slows down.

Back to the original tempo, and for a while we have three guitars
playing at the same time. Backing guitar plays single notes.
