                   The Day That Never Comes - Metallica
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Gabe Cavin
Email: gabe@earthbridge.net

This ISN'T A FULLY COMPLETE tab yet (I have yet to tab the bridge and solo), 
but I just wanted to get most of this tab out there so people could start 
jamming. This tab could be a little shaky (This is my first one), but I just 
couldn't help but tab it out after I heard it for the first time.

The parts where distortion and palm mutes occur aren't included, as I think you
can figure those spots out. Enjoy!

Guitar 1 - James Hetfield - Rhythm
Guitar 2 - Kirk Hammett - Lead

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
