Thoughts?

How would you notate the rhythm? Do you hear it more as a "rushed 3/4" or a "dragging 5/8" or is it neither? (I think if you listen to how they play it live, it sounds much closer to 5/8 than 3/4, but the album version is kind of in-between.)

Also, would you notate it like it's notated in the article (8th notes, 3 bars of 4/4 + 1 bar of 5/8-ish) or in half tempo (16th notes, 4/4 + 7/8 or 13/16)? Or would you use cut time (3 bars of cut time + 1 bar of 5/8-ish)? Basically, how do you feel the pulse?

I would just play it the way I felt it, which I'm guessing is what Metallica did when they wrote it and recorded it. And which may well explain why it doesn't lend itself to being written down accurately.

Not sure I'd worry about the live version, that timing issue is probably the least of their timing worries, at least going by the live version doing the rounds on Scuzz.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
