Ok, so this is my favourite Metallica song ever, and I learned it today (apart from the solo, for now)

Anyway, on some cover videos I've seen, I've seen people play the intro like this

e|-------------------------------------------|| x2
B|-------------------------------------------||
G|-------------------------------------------||
D|---------------9---------------------9---7-||
A|---------------7---------------------7---5-||
E|--0-0-0-0-0-----------0-0-0-0-0------------||
p.m...... p.m......


e|-------------------------------------------|| x2
B|-------------------------------------------||
G|-------------------------------------------||
D|---------------9---9------------------9--7---7||
A|---------------7---7-----------------7---5----5|
E|--0-0-0-0-0-----------0-0-0-0-0------------||


BUT

I learned it like this today (the way I found it in the UG tabs)

e|-------------------------------------------||
B|-------------------------------------------||
G|-------------------------------------------||
D|---------------9---------------------9---7-||
A|---------------7---------------------7---5-||
E|--0-0-0-0-0-----------0-0-0-0-0------------||
p.m...... p.m......
X2
e|--------------------------------------||
B|--------------------------------------||
G|--------------------------------------||
D|-----------9---9-------------9--7---7-||
A|-----------10--10-----------10--9---9-||
E|-0-0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0-0-----------||

And also for the riff before the vocals, I learned this

e|---------------------------------------||
B|---------------------------------------||
G|------------------------------4--6--------||
D|-2~~-----------------------4--6--6-----||
A|-2~~-----------------------2--4--6-----||
E|-0~~------------------------------4-----||

But I've seen people do this

e|---------------------------------------||
B|---------------------------------------||
G|------------------------------4--6--------||
D|-2~~-----------------------4--6--4-----||
A|-2~~-----------------------2--4--4-----||
E|-0~~------------------------------2-----||


Could someone please tell me which is the lead and which is correct for doing a lead cover, since I don't want to play the rhythm and lead riffs in one cover (altho I'm sure they're close enough to each other)

in the intro where you play the E5 to the D5 is lead and the other way using the 9th and 10th frets is rythm, but alone i find E5 and D5 to sound better

well for the intro both are right. The first is the rhythm and the riff with the inverted power chords is the lead. and as for the other riff I always played it like this
e|---------------------------------------||
B|---------------------------------------||
G|------------------------------5--7--------||
D|-2~~-----------------------5--7--4-----||
A|-2~~-----------------------3--5--4-----||
E|-0~~------------------------------2-----||

Do whichever you want, as long as you're playing something that sounds right it really doesn't matter.

The riff before the vocals is the second one.

And yeh, the first part is both- one for each guitar.

I hate splitting guitars into "rhythm" and "lead"- they are just guitars!

Also this is my favourite song aswell
