I just had two questions:

1) for the chords, I dont play the G string, only the A and D, and it still sounds correct to me. Would this be fine for a performance?

2) my understanding is that all those open notes have to be palm muted, for the final bit, how do you palm mute the two 0's then un-mute the 7 (or similar) considering how fast you have to down strum?

thank you!

1) yeah its fine, all it is is an octave. side by side, it will sound noticeably different, but it wont sound so bad that anyone will notice it when you play the actual song.

2) practice.

in that case, ur gonna have to palm mute the opens, then lift your palm mute in between opens and the A string

That tab is wrong.

The whole riff is played on the low E including the power chords.



I call shenanigans!

The tab in the OP is correct.

the two top rated MoP tabs on this site say to play it like this

I guess Hetfield has been playing it wrong his whole life then.....

he could be playing it differently live, perhaps one string higher five notes across? but this is how he plays it in the studio.
#15
Well he hasn't been playing it his whole life, so that isn't technically accurate.

Im trying to air guitar it at work cause im not sure now....

The tab is correct but I have seen him play it the way you described. Either way it ends up being the same result

Maybe they changed if for playing live, I've noticed they mostly play fade to black in Eb.
#19
^They usually tune down half a step when playing live. But that wouldn't change the way they play it. There's no reason why they would play it differently live. And how could anyone know how he plays it in the studio?
#20
^ I think it is played like the OP in the original, however they play it the alternate way now. It's like how people alter their solos from the recording, maybe they think it sounds better.

offtopic i guess but.
-0-0-7-0-0-6-0-0-5-0-4-0-3-0-2 i think there should be a 1 after the 2?

-0-0-7-0-0-6-0-0-5-0-4-0-3-0-2-1

I think its jsut another open note
#23
Both methods yield the same result, so what's the argument about? Do it whichever way you prefer.

It's 2-0 at the end of the riff by the way, not 2-1.

Looks like hes doing the extra 1, no ?



Yep you can see Kirk doing it in that vid, along with the riff on the low E.

The sound difference by using the low E throughout is very noticeable and sounds heavier, which Im sure is why James wrote and plays it like that (and has done since 1986 along with Kirk).

But yea its up to you to decide how to play it man. You can play it the way Hammett shows in the vid, which Im sure he learnt from Hetfield, and is totally authentic, OR just copy some guys tab from the internet.

Take it up five frets from what you are already playing and play it on the lower string.
