3 things i forgot to put down:

x = muted string
t = tap (with finger or pick)
~ = vibrato
+16   April 19 2003, 12:00 am by homair |
ok something i've noticed which is confusing. in the verses (i can't remember anything, can't tell if this is true or dream etc) i've put x2 before it goes to the heavy bit (hold my breath as i wish for death etc) but what i mean is you repeat the whole verse riff twice before going to the heavy bit. everywhere else i've put a x(2, 3, 4) it means you play just that bar as many times as it says.

well i hope all that makes sense. i forgot to notice these things because i was in a rush when i was writing it out.

yeah met_al_lica69 you are right, hetfield does play the intro part like that but it's the same notes anyway.

Lets see you do it better idiot.
+31   May 2 2004, 12:00 am by homair |
do you mean the 'official' tab from the ...and justice for all tab book? do you know that it is infamous for being inaccurate. just look at the blackened riff, terrible.
+34   May 15 2004, 12:00 am by Rajah |
""[04/26/2004] by |Super_Naut+:
i have the official tab and this one is all wrong""
Offical Tab?? You think the artists actually sit down and tab these? Books are tabbed by other guitarists, not the artists. Not such thing as official tab - except maybe Steve Vai, he edits his tabs.
+27   May 21 2004, 12:00 am by Señor |
thank u for this great tab. it seems perfect. perfect tab for a perfect song. greetings to all metallica fans.
+14   May 22 2004, 12:00 am by Oswald |

This song is hard!!!
Remembering all the notes in the verse and Interludes and ***.
I will learn this song later.

its not a pull off hammer on pull of its slide up down. i know thats correct cuz i saw it in the video
+15   June 20 2004, 12:00 am by griff1987 |
omg, wen hes playin tht fast how do u notice the difference between a slide a pull off?
+12   June 30 2004, 12:00 am by hethamulburton |
well griff1987 i notice it, you can always tell when the pick hits the string and if you listen close enough and and enough times you can here an absence of a pick stroke, though it takes time to notice it right of the bat
-16   July 30 2004, 12:00 am by TheWrEcKeD |
i think the 00000 in the main solo are tremolo picked
+7   August 8 2004, 12:00 am by ishallrock |
ahhhhhhh this song is ***ing awesome, i find it to be very correct, ive been working on it for like 2 weeks and im playing lead and i know up to verse 2, this is so friggin awesome

+8   December 11 2004, 12:00 am by wickbone73 |
i couldnt believe this was 'tabbable'. im having a ***ing blast learning this song. this is totally a showoff solo!! weehooh!!!
-14   December 12 2004, 12:00 am by wickbone73 |
one thing though. During this part:

e|----------------------------------------|
b|-------------------------0h3p0---0h3p0--|
g|-------0-7-----0------4--------4--------|
D|----7-------7------5--------------------|
A|-5--------------------------------------|

e|-----1--------------------|
b|-------1-------0----------|
g|---0-----0-------0-4------|
D|-3-----------2------------|
A|----------------------/3--|
E|--------------------------|

It sounds like theres a couple of oter parts over top of that. I had to listen carefully to hear the part that was tabbed, but it seemed to be underneath the other parts. Is there like 5 guitars going at a time in this song?

-11   January 26 2005, 12:00 am by guitarplayer789 |
Great tab man the chourus sounds a little off though, it ends on a fret higher than the 2, so just thought id point that out
+12   January 28 2005, 12:00 am by Kirkk |
YES, IN MY OPINION THE BEST TAB IVE EVER SEEN
-9   February 6 2005, 12:00 am by Icas |
at this part, he skips back down to 19, like this i think
e|-t20p15p12-t20p15p12-t20p15p12-t20p15p12-t19p15p12-t20p15p12-t19p15p12-t20p15p12--|

-47   March 15 2005, 12:00 am by TheMutts |
alot of mistakes but its pretty good
-15   March 18 2005, 12:00 am by monkey_xxx2003 |
this is a pretty good tab. the solos have a lot of errors in them though. i will give it four stars. how is that. you pretty much covered everything though. really good tab i think in the parts that you did good at
-8   April 16 2005, 12:00 am by Snoops |
ive seen UG Stranger in every freakin comment room always saying something about the tab and how much it sucks or hes always talking to himself
April 16 2005, 12:00 am by Snoops |
great tab BTW a few lil mistakes and errors here and there but very well laid out and detailed..good job
+5   May 7 2005, 12:00 am by MushroomMan1 |
Man, You said it (homair) and you were right man the changes made finshed it off, if there are mistakes i cant tell, man 5 stars all the way, makes me wanna learn this song all over again, keep it up, awesome job.
+2   June 24 2005, 12:00 am by blink_nirvana |
the intro is absolutely disgusting! amazing sounds perfect!

awesome tab and an awesome song. it didn't take long to this song untik i got to the fast solo, im still working on that.
+5   October 21 2005, 01:47 am by jacob_metaller |
I thought that this tab was brilliant. I tried to figure out the 1st solo by myself but couldnt quite get the end. good job. P.S does anyone have any good tabs for pass the jam by Iron Maiden?
-7   October 24 2005, 03:49 pm by metal4all |
idk if its just me but in like 3 videos, at the second solo, kirk has his fingers up between frets 12-15 instead of 12-19. im lost
-16   November 14 2005, 01:16 pm by freaktabs |

great song but u def messed up on the solos.... ill write back with 100% correct solos
-9   December 22 2005, 10:06 am by grungerag13 |
wheres the harmony to the last solo?
-8   December 22 2005, 04:17 pm by mastershredder4 |
sweet, the solo is off, as you've heard everyone els say, but i dont learn the solos anyway, sept like stairway and stuff, awsome tab
-11   December 26 2005, 12:18 am by 6stringguru |
how long does it take u guys to learn the solo anywayz, just wondering, cus it took me 3.5 hours (is that bad or good)
-8   January 10 2006, 12:21 pm by deadroseromance |
shoudn't take too long, if you keep trying to compare your playing to the song you'll realize how easy the solo is. Took my 1.5 hours max, it's more about guitar technique than the solo.
+4   January 12 2006, 10:26 am by x8DisturbeD8x |
All in all you did an awsome job tabbing it....
+8   January 21 2006, 08:22 pm by Kirk_Hammet007 |
this tab kicks major ass i give it a freakin' 5 stars.
perfect dude
yeeeeeah
ps. kirk hammet is a GOD

-10   February 6 2006, 02:10 am by _Metallica_ |
yea whats is the tuning
-5   February 17 2006, 06:07 pm by CliffEmAll |
standard, jsut play with the song u can hear the difference, if its tuned down and your in standard there will be a huge difference
+5   February 19 2006, 12:55 pm by DeMoNhUnTeRuLeS |
the tuning is standard tuning (Eadgbe). most metallica songs are tuned to this
-17   February 22 2006, 04:33 am by Tias |
i think its not the correct tuning
+1   February 24 2006, 02:23 pm by Sahil Chugani |
wow man. Great tab really. Been working on it for a week and its much easier than i though. Thanks man keep it the great work and keep those tabs coming
+2   March 3 2006, 12:14 am by K1nG_N07hinG |
Dude, awesome tab BUT, i have a small complaint. Indication of palm mutes would help a great deal especially during the part just before "Darkness, imprisioning me, all that I see, absolute horror, ect. Every else is self explanatory its just that one part. Thanks alot for a great tab.
+4   March 10 2006, 06:35 pm by roper404 |

there is three guitar parts in one part of the intro, but you could do it with 2.

ive been looking for the tabs for this song for ages and i rekon this has to be the better if not the best of the lot. sure theres a few errors but for such an awesome song being played by imo the best guitarist and on their most technical album its a damn good job!
+4   August 1 2006, 10:21 pm by DisturbedOne126 |

Great job. The only question I have is in the intro solo, what does it mean to "rake"?

sick tab and rake is a picking technique where instead of normally picking the notes, you hold the pick a little looser and sorta drag it across the strings(in this case, fairly quickly)and lift your fingers to give it an effect of "raking" all of the notes up.

Dude the intro solo where its like:
e|-----14-19--17p15----15------|
b|---15-------------19----15~--|
g|-16--------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

i play it like this:

/rake\
e|-----14-19--17p15-14---15----|
b|---15--------------------15~-|
g|-16--------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

Same note just easier to play

BTW Great tab dude

April 1 2007, 10:17 am by randyrhoads723 |
/4 means slide up to 4 from a few frets down
April 1 2007, 10:18 am by randyrhoads723 |

seems about right, but on the main heavy riff part, are you sure that there are 6 open E string notes, I've been listening to it for a while and it sounds a lot more like 4 open E string
-3   April 22 2007, 08:35 am by ldnovelo |
I think the chorus is on E string so i play it

+2   June 16 2007, 07:49 pm by masterometal666 |
One thing, there are actually 4 guitars used in the studio version, believe it or not. This was done to create the massive harmonies that lead up into the fast section. Listen to it live to figure out how it really sounds, when there's only two parts to it. And why didn't you put the palm mutes in there? It's actually not very obvious where they are, because some places didn't sound right the way this tab is written out.
June 16 2007, 07:54 pm by masterometal666 |
And the rhythm part in the fast section is all triplets...just thought that would help some people who couldn't quite get it down.

umm "AlchoholicA", ive liked this song for a long time prior to guitar hero 3 came out. ive just never really taken
intrest in learning to play a guitar, and the start of this song is reasonably easy. i dunno bout the rest of the ppl
lookin at this tab. but yeah, its *******s like you that i hate.

so in answer to your question, no you are not
right. who agrees with me?

great stuff, im new to guitar (4 months playing) and im having little trouble playing the solo, but ill get there, just gotta get my alt picking right and ive got it
February 20 2008, 12:54 pm by bonexbroke |
You have the beginning of the really long solo tabbed wrong. The way i play it is hard to get used to but it sounds better. I'm not so good at tabbing but to give you an idea how it's done watch this video: (the part im talking about starts at 27 seconds) http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZSw6R00_Tr4

haha...nice tab man 4*.....and yea it is obvious where palm mutes are...but it still helps to have them there written down ....nice job anyways though ^^
February 26 2008, 05:51 pm by cozzy99coz |
joeyb213, vibrato is wen u use the wammy bar to make it sound like the note is repeating, and 4 the part where ur stuck, it means pluck a string, pull off to the next note, then slide to the next one.

this tab is freakin perfect. 5 stars

Well...for me its pretty easy...there aren't many major pauses. I only use my 1st and 3rd finger throughout that whole part, except I use my 2nd finger on the 4th fret of the g-string.

this is an awseome tab, EXCEPT... i know the solo is deffinently rong.
the first and second parts are right
the parts that go 19p15p12... 20p15p12...

but then, the tabs says it repeats, but i dont think it does
i think its supposed to go 18p15p12... 19p15p12...
and i just think its this way b/c of the pattern (19-20,18-19,17-18)

its a little hard to understand, but it makes sence.

if you want information about guitar playing that isn't specific to the tab you'd be better off using the forum. I'd recommend the guitar & bass basics forum, that's where most of the non-advanced techniques are discussed.

Oh, and another thing. For all NooB's out there. This song IS in standard tuning. No, its not you amp *snigger*, or in drop-d *LOL* or even your Boss Chromatic tuner thats wrong. Its your untrained ears. So listen up now and you'll save yourself time (and face... is it in drop-d? jeeesus).

Tune up to your tuner (if you must),then listen to song your gonna learn. You already know its in standard tuning but sounds different? Tune slightly up or down until youre the same. Its not rocket science. Peace
-2   October 15 2008, 02:52 pm by punk Rocker 32 |
no ur wrong live wire.it sounds like its tuned a quarter step down ass hole.so quit acting like ur a guitar god by saying"oh its ur untrained ear" when its actually ur ear thats ****ed up.i hope this helps
October 22 2008, 02:35 am by livewire76 |
First off punk rocker its actually you who is wrong. Why? Its maybe not obvious to you (and others) but there are, and have been, slight variations between different tuners over the years. Not big ones but enough to be audible. This is one. Just because YOUR tuner doesnt match Metallicas tuner 20 years ago doesnt mean they didnt use standard. Listen to the first 4 Metallica albums and you hear differences, yet still all are in standard pitch. No one tunes a guitar down a quarter pitch.. lol

Secondly, calling me an ******* is really offending and im so hurt. I guess you have to swear and call people names to make up for your lack of IQ, poor grammer and spelling. In a way, i feel sorry for you.
+1   October 22 2008, 02:37 am by livewire76 |

October 22 2008, 04:08 pm by archerxx11 |
Actually Livewire, that last "insult" isn't an insult considering the difference between grammer and grammar is spelling, not grammar itself. Btw great tab, memorizing this song is gonna be hard...
October 22 2008, 04:13 pm by archerxx11 |
Oh srry, I messed up I thought you were the other guy (Punk Rocker) when you said "Oh the irony" >.< once again srry bout that livewire. and punk rocker, stfu, if you have any comments about the tab livewire recommended, then don't insult. Just say it calmly.

BEST METALICCA SONG EVER
-6   November 2 2008, 11:40 am by guitaristx125 |
Great song,great tab,but there are some small mistakes I found solution to:

e|------------------------------------------|
b|-------------------------0h3p0---0h3p0----|
g|-------0-7-----0------4--------4-------0--|
D|----7-------7------5----------------------|
A|-5----------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

This is the part that doesn't sound right to many people,including me.If you listen to the One played on the San Francisco famous concert with the symphony you will see that that part sounds very different there.As someone said before,in studio version there are many guitars playing,but on concert there are only 2.This is how i think it should be played:

e|------------------------------------------|
b|------------------------------------------|
g|-------0-7--7--9--7--5p4--4---------------|
D|----7------------------------7--5---------|(or 5 3 i forgot)
A|-5----------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

Feel free to add corrections to this because I'm not so good with tabbing but this sounds good to me.

And then this part:

e|----------------------------------|
b|----------------------------------|
g|-11p9\7--9p7\6--7p6\4--6p4\2--/4--|

I pretty much 100% sure it's like this:

e|------------------------------------|
b|------------------------------------|
g|-11p9-9--9p7-7--7p6-6--6p4-4-2--/4--|
D|------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------|

Also i think you can even not to use pull offs here and in the part that's left of out from this tab line (2h3 2 and so on) you can not to slide on /4,just play 4.Feel free to experiment with these corrections and sorry for my english.:D

When playing along, if it sounds slightly off to you and you've tuned your guitar perfectly, I think it's because lead guitar has a tiny bit of chorus effect on it, as chorus adds a slightly detuned effect. Turn your chorus pedal on and see if that sounds better.
February 25 2009, 05:26 am by livewire76 |
I dont get it. Why are so many people confused about the tuning? Everyone knows the first four Metallica albums were in standard pitch, right? We're aggreed on that, yes? Now go back an listen/play along with them with your guitar tuned to whatever type tuner you use. Notice theyre all slightly different? No, theyre not dropped a halfstep (semitone) or, as one nameless person said, dropped a quarter step!, its just slight variations on "standard". And btw ive always tuned TO the record im playing along with, doesnt everyone?

as for the part thats giving everyone headaches - me included - i have a possible solution im going to post the next time im on. Peace.

My two cents for this section:

e|------------------------------------------|
b|-------------------------0h3p0---0h3p0----|
g|-------0-7-----0------4--------4-------0--|
D|----7-------7------5----------------------|
A|-5----------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

Above is from the tab which at first i didnt really think worked but after watching some live videos of "One" i have to admit is correct or very close. Below is another way. Same notes just slightly different timing. Sounds better to me at least. :s

e|--------------------------------------------|
b|----------------------------0h3p0-0h3p0-----|
g|-------0-7-----0------5--4----------------0-|
D|----7-------7------5------------------------|

Okay dude the tabs are good, but there are a few mistakes that you gotta fix up, like the end of the intro solo, what it should really be is e|-7-9-10/12-10-9-7-9-9-10-7-------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------|

your way can work too but this way works better for me, oya and nice tabs.

I like this tab, the ending anyway. but to point something out, you mixed the outro up. the main rhythm for the solo shoulda been in that section, I was kind of confused until I asked someone about it. So just fix those two parts and you're good. Look off someone elses tab for an idea but use your same version. The end of the song should be last.

Ok! For the missing acoustic part, I worked hard on it again, and I found a high quality live video in which we can see a little of what Kirk is playing.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_D5AMoXDgY

From what I can see and hear form the video, and from what I heard on their last sunday show(Yes, I saw them Live!) different riff on the second time(But it is actually not the case on the CD)

At first, he plays this (or something like that, at least)
|-------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|
|----7---7----------------------------|
|------7------9-10--9h10p9-7h9p7-5~~--|
|--5----------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|

Then the second time:
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|----7---7----7-9--7h9p7-5h7p5-4~~--|
|------7----------------------------|
|--5--------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|

If we put the two together, we get this:
|-------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|
|----7---7----7--9--7h-9p7-5h7p5-4~~--|
|------7------9-10--9h10p9-7h9p7-5~~--|
|--5----------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|

Which actually correspond to the chords we hear on the CD, but it's nearly impossible to play(Well, I can't see how I could do these hammer-on/pull-off with only 4 fingers). So I think there are 2 acoustic guitars playing together on the CD, playing the chords on a single-string harmony.

However, A possible way of playing it:
|-------------------------------------------|
|---------------3---5--3h5p3---1/3\1---0----|
|----7----7-----4---5--4h5p4---2/4\1---0----|
|-------7-----------------------------------|
|-5-----------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|

Which is similar to what I posted on my last comment.

Well, let me know what you guys think. ;)
November 30 2009, 02:12 pm by extendafist |
After using this tab, I could only pick out one flaw:

On the left side of each bar, you made the top three strings lowercase letters. It should only be the high e string. :)

This is an awesome tab, and probably one of the best I've ever seen. Good job!
December 5 2009, 05:33 pm by thunderingbear |

well this is not a critic but i think the heavy part after the third chorus is missing some notes and also how can you play it with a pick

@longlive m&m

You play them like power chords, but your index finger must only touch the D string, without pressing it on the fret. It'll mute the string and you won't hear it at all.
February 16 2010, 01:30 pm by Hakoon1 |
This is a great song with some awsome stuff in it. It's also not extremely hard, because I'm 13 and I can play it. Bravo to the tabber, you did a great job.

I just got the backing track (The official song, but with lead guitar removed so you can practice it alone like you were playing with a band!), and on this part:

e|------------------------------------------|
b|-------------------------0h3p0---0h3p0----|
g|-------0-7-----0------4--------4-------0--|
D|----7-------7------5----------------------|
A|-5----------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

The acoustic guitar has been removed on the backing track, and we can clearly hear that James quickly play the open B string before the hammer-on, like that:

e|----------------------------------------------|
b|------------------------0-0h3p0----0-0h3p0----|
g|-------0-7-----0------4----------4---------0--|
D|----7-------7------5--------------------------|
A|-5--------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

But it's quite hard to hear throught the whole mix :)

either my guitar sucks, or the tuning for standard is too sharp for this song...i think in the song its more flat...
March 15 2010, 02:18 pm by Guitar Z |
just one thing:

Why did you add in the symbol for palm muting when you didn't actually use it?

dude what the ****? this is some bull shit.... i learned all the way to the end of the second solo and the riff right after the chorus riff where it gets distorted is messing me up. the part with the 9x7 chord, 5x7 chord etc. is wrong to me and i need help. can someone post a correction for it cuz it seems like no one else noticed this?

Awweeesommeee tab man :D There's two things for those people who are tearing their hairs out to get this song right. There's sorta an Echo Effect to the entire song but everyone can prolly get it right :) And the other thing is that the Machine Gun Riff Has to be a Delay Effect at a very fast speed (What my mentor told me if i can remember that hahaha) Or unless you can Strum really really fast :)

play at the second fret, then pick at the fourth fret, bend the string with your finger until it sounds like the 6th fret, and then return your finger to the fourth fret but strait

August 15 2011, 07:17 pm by Someguy2443 |
Good job man 5 stars from me. I think the tab is correct I play side by side with the song taking out the lead part and use my guitar to replace the lead part. It all seems to fit together. Also there is like 100 different ways to play any and every song this is just the way metallica plays from what I can tell but that doesn't mean you cant play the "What ever your name is" way.

I've been trying to learn parts from the intro solo and I'm hitting the positions, hammer ons and pull offs, but it doesn't sound as sweet.
Do you guys recommend playing other stuff before this or just keep chucking away?
Thanks
April 15 2013, 05:26 am by SKAKSD |
This is definitely my FAVORITE TAB. First full advanced song I learned :)
Shame cuz now when i search "One", i find One Direction...
I love this song, and the solo isn't as tough as it seems after just a little bit of practice. METALLICA FTW. THIS TAB IS AWESOME :)

Is the main solo played with eight finger tapping or just incredibly long reach, cos I can't do either. Great tab though

In the clean part after the chorus there should be two other guitars (in the studio version) who are playing:
