I am submitting a full correct version of the Unforgiven by Metallica

Subject: TAB: The Unforgiven by Metallica
Song: The Unforgiven
Artist:Metallica
Album:Metallica (black album)
transcribed by:MikeH1982@aol.com


Alrightty....There is some correct parts of the current Unforgiven
file..then again there are a few INCORRRCT parts..so I just said "the
hell with it" ill re-do the whole thing. Here goes.

Intro:Starts with a horn


rythm: clean electric
or acoustic guitar:Jaymz
(with fingers)
|--------------------------------|
|-0-----0-----0-----0-----1------|
|---2-----2-----2-----2-----2----|
|-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--|
|-0------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
Keep repeating along with the lead
guitar until the verse starts.


lead:clean electric guitar:Kirk
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|
|--2--4--4h5---5-4-2----2--4--4h5---5--2---|
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|
Repeat this one more time, then the drums and
bass come in, and a similar sounding but 
different line is played....

Verse 1: Im going to put in Kirk's part of the song.
If you want Jaymz's part of the verses,which is nothing
but a few power chords, go to the CHORD section for the 
unforgiven in OLGA..I recently added a correct file to that also.

Kirk's part (Played right along with the words.)
|-------------------------------------------|
|------------------8--8--7--7---------------|
|-7--5--4--4h5----------------5--5---7------|

 "on and on. He's known"

play Kirk's intro part for the chorus
then for the next verse, repeat the same
as the first verse.
Then, we get ready for the interlude and the solo
(for all of you who dont know, an interlude is 
the part right before the distortion sounding solo)
