                             THE ECSTASY OF GOLD - Metallica
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Brett Dixon
Email: brett_dixon15@hotmail.com

Tuning: 1/2 Step Down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb)

I was looking at the other tabs for this song, and, my gosh..
Incorrect tunings, wrong tab..
They don't even have any of James's parts! 
Well anyway, here is the full, CORRECT tab.

To see me play this on Youtube, use this link:

There she is, Metallica's "The Ecstasy of Gold" In it's entirety. 
If I got anything wrong, please let me know. Enjoy rocking to
this track! Can't wait for Death Magnetic, which is going to be
my next big project. Check my account the day the album comes out
(when will that be!?) and I will have tabs out ASAP. But in the 
meantime, enjoy!!
