Song: Heavy Metal 
Artist: Sammy Hagar


tab by: John Clark

Hey folks, 
I've seen this song tabbed wrong on the opening riff that's used throughout the 
song, the 3rd fret C note pull-off on the A string. I thought it was the C, (which 
is the minor 3rd to A) but when I listened closer it's actually the 4th fret C# 
note (which is the major 3rd to A) that is a pull-off to the open A string and is 
consistent throughout the song. So I thought I'd do my own tab and correct it. Try 
it, its right!!!
