The tab is almost right but it is not played tuned down half a step, its played on normal tuning.
-24   December 15 2001, 12:00 am by Bong Water |
fantastic.yep, youre rite, it is tuned down, i dunno wat dat other persons on bout. im pretty sure this is 100% correct, great job. the only thing im not 2 sure about is the interlude, maybe if you could either fix it up or write it in an easier to read method, thatd make it complete.
once again, great job
+28   January 19 2002, 12:00 am by Fightin` Dingo |
Nope its is tuned normal not 1/2 step down im pretty sure thats this is almost 100% correct

everyone version 2 of this song is way better. but it isn't tuned down 1/2 a step. whoever thinks so is either a dumbass or has recently shagged his grandma.

i think the song is beautiful, i only just started playing, but the tab was easy to follow and sounded great(well, all except i havent been playing long) i dont really care if it is regular tuning or not, if youre playing it in your own home, i dont think metallica will have anything to say about it if its in regular tuning or not. thanks for the awesome tab

it's not tuned down. i've got the book

actually its right!!!
+11   March 25 2002, 12:00 am by skill |
Bet the tab is good, but as so many people say: It is not tuned 1/2 step down. Listen to the black album. My guitar is perfectly normal tuned, and sounds exactly like the black album version. However but, if you listen to the S&M version the guitars are stepped 1/2 down. Peraps this can clear things up :) Metallica found out that Hetfield sounded much greater this way after making the ReLoad album.. Lock & Rewind poeple :)

i do agree with skill on this one, he has a point.
+1   April 14 2002, 12:00 am by raginmetallicat |
You are all kinda right....nothing else matters the original....yes, definately straight e-tuning....if you know anythin bout metallica and play guitar, you will also know that in all of their live concerts, they use e-minor tuning....listen to S&M or Binge and Purge and you will find it is true :) as for dropd-tunin for nothing else matters....consider another hobby as you are obviously tone deaf (cough)....nice1

April 27 2002, 12:00 am by e22k1el |
your rite dude its tuned down a half step. awsome job.
April 30 2002, 12:00 am by JuneB10 |
Well, I'm kinda just repeating a lot of people here, but this tab is pretty good, only your interlude has a few problems and it's not ½ step down tuning.
April 30 2002, 12:00 am by JuneB10 |
Not 1/2 step down tuning, I mean.

Listen to S+M fellas. Its deffinately down a 1/2 step

It is 7^0 0^5 at the intro , not 7^0-5^0 !! and the solo is wrong!
+2   May 18 2002, 12:00 am by dj_icantwalk |
and u know what else? everyone is correcting people because iof the tuning and i read a few people saying, in the black album tab book it's tuned normally. That's because THIS TAB ISNT FOR THE BLACK ALBUM VERSION!!!!

if u look u can see that it says 99 VERSION!!!!!
-1   May 19 2002, 12:00 am by KIRK666 |
what do you mean '99 version? Metallica did their last concert in '98
and they haven't changed any of their songs.
p.s.metallica fans will be happy to know that metallica are back in the
recording studio doing their 8th album!!!!!

You can play the intro instead of this


like this:


I have it like that in a book. They sound the same but IMO the last one is better.
September 26 2002, 12:00 am by Thonny |
At the beginning of the interlude you can play:
instead of:


actually it's easier and I saw James playing like this in concert.

im new on guitar how the hell do u play something like this??????

There are 2 version, the studio version is played in reg.tuning the live version, for example in 99 is played a half step down!

Bullocks.. Canada sucks. I know, I´ve been there.
Anyways.. The tab is great..
+1   January 28 2003, 12:00 am by MotorBreath9 |
I wrote a correction tab, but I couldn't submit it because I wrote
"Metallica plays alot of their live sh*t tuned a 1/2 step down, but I don't think they have it tuned down on the album." Apparently you can't use the word sh*t in your corrections. Well F*CK you for wasting my time. I didn't realize the website was rated G. Let me try again.
The tab is all pretty good, but I thing you're missing the part where James does his slides after he plays his solo. This is how I do it.
()=hold ~=vibrato
(con't)B|/7/8/(12) hold until end.

I could be wrong, but good job anyway.
February 5 2003, 12:00 am by FenderFreak2728 |
man, this is awsome, other than the tuning issue that u said is wrong, im gonna use this to audition for Advanced Studio Guitar so i dont have to take studio guitar I which will be boring, i think this will get me in, thanks, i will let u know when i make it in
February 11 2003, 12:00 am by EdgeKrusher |
Either it is finger picked.. of the areas where it leaves a blank is muted or what? for example.. Finger picked I take it?
+1   February 18 2003, 12:00 am by EdgeKrusher |
I say its in Reg tuning.. but play it how your heart desires
March 29 2003, 12:00 am by Stratster182 |
Dude this tab is good for the parts that you have but you miss alot in there but nice personal version. I also may have a version from a different tour or something.
+1   April 16 2003, 12:00 am by Bighizz420 |
some say this song is tuned down 1/2 step and some say different, here's the truth. Metallica plays this song tuned normally and also tuned down 1/2 step.
June 5 2003, 12:00 am by frisco |
its preety close,but good enough
June 14 2003, 12:00 am by rollingaerofan |
since you are all arguing about tuning
for this song, it is regular tuning,
this being EADGBE. i bought a songbook
for metallica. ethere are a lot of
other mistakes here too.
June 14 2003, 12:00 am by rollingaerofan |
also, for the intro, check out intro
ver 2. it is 100% true to the song book.
this is wrong
+1   June 16 2003, 12:00 am by Pyroboy3000 |
i don't understand people who go out and buy song books.. then check sites for tabs....
do you just go on sites so you can tell people they're wrong and feel good about yourself?
metallica tuned a half step down for S&M to make it easier to play with the orchestra...
June 16 2003, 12:00 am by Pyroboy3000 |
oh,another thing, the chords that you wrote out for the solo, they should all be flat (Eb5, Db5, etc.)
Also, some of the scale degrees are wrong
Eb5 (VI)
Cb5 or B5 (IV)
Gb5 (I)
Bb5 (III)
-2   September 15 2003, 12:00 am by orskar |
people buy songbooks because they realise that all the tabs for the song they are looking for are crap(namely this one)

hey what does the PH PPH mean and the BBRV mean above the

4th and the BBRV above the solo, i was wondering what they mean.

if anyone could tell me, that would be great!

Actually, it's very simple, all that stuff about tuning.. Because there are actually quite a few different versions of the song. If u listen to the album version its standard tuning, but if u listen to the s & m koncert version, its tuned down half a step..

January 24 2006, 08:47 am by metallicman |
There are some good parts in the tab but there are meant to be two guitars being played at the same time and it looks like this tab puts it all in one...which is just wrong. I dont thing the solo is right either so get it sorted out man! Unless this is a different version at the a live performance it definately needs to change but this is not the original version.

Excellent tab man!
+5   March 13 2006, 05:10 am by GreenDayRocks_7 |
First of all for all those wankers that think this tab is wrong,
use are all dickheads because I have been playin guitar for 8 years
now and I tunnings very we'll and the only reason I haven't got any tabs to my name is beacause I'm almost aways rehearsin' with my band False Judgement. I can tell you right now that this tab is 98% correct. You wanna' know why this tab is only 98% correct, it's only 98% correct because Ruud, you left out the natural harmonics for starters and secondly I have been tunnin' most of my songs that me and my band have written down 1/2 a step and that means I have been listening to 1/2 a step down tunnin' for so long that I can garentee that this tab is not tunned down 1/2 a step but over all Ruud, this has gotta' be by far the best Metallica tab that I have ever seen done for Metallica. Fuckin' awesome tab man. Keep doin' more tabs like this in the near future.
+1   March 13 2006, 05:26 am by Ben Downes |
Hey I'm bein' honest when I type this, Ben Downes who is another member of Ug. Lead guitarist of my band False Judgement infact, anyway he's lookin' for people to comment or vote on some of his tabs.
Most tabs he has done are Nickelback tabs mainly because Nickelback
are Ben's favourite band and he sais nothing will ever change that
some examples of tabs that Ben has done for Nickelback are:
Far Away, Old Enough, If Everyone Cared, Some-one That Your With, See You At The Show(v3), Worthy To Say and Figured You Out(v2).
The others tabs he has done for other bands are:
Concreet Boots and Destination Uknown by After The Fall
and Heard That Sound by Mxpx. he only asks that people might comment or vote on these songs that he has tabbed for some of thses bands.
So please think about it hey.
March 27 2006, 11:25 am by BlkMetal8753 |
its just amazing how manz ppl will bitch at you over a little thing like 1/2 step down tuning, i play it on normal on acoustic but this is the s&m concert tab, so it could easily be down half a step it doesnt make that big of a difference
March 29 2006, 08:14 pm by rnrigfts |
dude if you really listen to this song it sounds nothing like what you slapped down
April 7 2006, 12:39 pm by Thedead_metal@7 |

you can slide to an open by simply slide to 1 and then release...

yeah um.. half step down on s&m. regular on black..
and seriously.. its no biggy anyways.
who gives a shit about the tuning.. it sounds great
November 7 2006, 01:55 pm by AshI_234 |
kylebbb is right satndard on black and 1/2 on s&m
November 14 2006, 10:35 am by C_Turton |
This is definitely standard tuning on the black album.
To all of you who keep saying the guy is wrong to put THIS version half-step down:
Have you read the top where it says "99 version"?
Same goes to anyone who takes the piss out of this guy's efforts. He clearly states 99 version at the top so you can all f'k off until you are 100% sure that your criticisms are well-founded.
Good job.
Note to darek9576:
If you don't know how to play that bit then don't bother with the rest of it. Go learn some easy shit. You said yourself that you're a beginner. This is not a good track to start your playing career. This is a tab site, not a teching site.
November 14 2006, 10:36 am by C_Turton |
Reply to velvet goldmine: it is fingerpicked. Thumb on a string and fingers 1, 2 & 3 to cover the other strings (in the part you show)
November 22 2006, 10:11 pm by eklipt |

I see this all the time. I dont under stand why people do this. Am i suppose to play the e b g strings with my pick and the a string with my tounge?
+1   November 27 2006, 05:25 am by C_Turton |
Eklipt, it's fingerpicked. There's no need to "understand why people do this", they are merely transcribing accurately. I don't mean to cause offence when I say this, but if you can't play it simply move to a different song. There's no shame in admitting defeat. Alternatively, you could practise like hell until you get the hang of it. Your choice.

September 11 2007, 02:53 am by MASTER JiMMY |
Guitarhead, simple answer to ur question, he is a retard, but any metallica fan knows they tuned it down a step live so u should be able to tell the differnce immediately, u should also know that in this tab he tells u to play chords in the verse which is wat james strums, instead of using arpeggios, im out

First of all for all those wankers that think this tab is wrong,
use are all dickheads because I have been playin guitar for 8 years
now and I tunnings very we'll and the only reason I haven't got any tabs to my name is beacause I'm almost aways rehearsin' with my band False Judgement. I can tell you right now that this tab is 98% correct. You wanna' know why this tab is only 98% correct, it's only 98% correct because Ruud, you left out the natural harmonics for starters and secondly I have been tunnin' most of my songs that me and my band have written down 1/2 a step and that means I have been listening to 1/2 a step down tunnin' for so long that I can garentee that this tab is not tunned down 1/2 a step but over all Ruud, this has gotta' be by far the best Metallica tab that I have ever seen done for Metallica. Fuckin' awesome tab man. Keep doin' more tabs like this in the near future.

Ok "Mr. Guitar Guru", what you said is half right. It is played in standard tuning for the studio version, but on the S&M version, it's tuned a half step down. So you're not as good as you thought at telling the tuning of a song after all. Get you facts straight before calling everyone else stupid.

damn good tabs man u rock to the core thx a lot i love metallica and i really needed tabs like these thx a lot man

anyways 5 stars
+1   April 18 2009, 04:29 pm by StratZatch720 |
wait a minute at the beginning it says '99 version, maybe they did play it a half step down live in '99 or whatever but going by the studio version in '91 play it standard tuning
April 22 2009, 11:35 am by slash556 |

For all you retards who think this is tuned down a half step...go die in a corner because you have no musical talent or an ear for music.
August 9 2009, 03:55 pm by james_2008 |
you idiot, this is a tab for the s&m version which IS half a step down

As for tuning it all depends were you are listening to the song from the tab is 99% correct except for a few little parts in the solo that don't mae a big diffrence. But back to what i was saying orignally if u listen to the Black Album it is standard but if u listen to S and M (the concert one) it is a half step down. So it really all depends great tab should be five stars!
December 19 2009, 08:47 am by Paja_94 |
perfect 5 stars(solo has a few mistakes but I dont meather)
January 9 2010, 04:50 pm by Frenzy422 |
Live they do play 1/2 step down.sometimes drop D.On this album everyone knows,Sad But True is tuned down a whole step.This song is not.Whoever may say this is the s&m version whatever.It is what it is.There are alot of kids in here i guess,but its mostly correct,except the tuning,if you submitted the tuning,you have to specify that it is S & M otherwise you get this bitching.But either way its OK.
January 9 2010, 04:57 pm by Frenzy422 |
Oh yeah and what is up with yall telling the US to suck your balls? how did the canada stuff come up anyhow?Um yeah we have better healthcare as i told beavis and butthead on his profile.Anyway canada is screwed up.Sorry for posting this in your comments page but yeah,kids,haha.

nice job man. although i couldn't tell if the last part of this is right. maybe i just didn't play it right though

+1   June 22 2010, 07:43 am by Sakuboi |
Yes, its tuned to ½ step down BUT in some versions its played in e standard. And why the hell everyone about some letters (Eb Ab etc) next to tab if tab is right?! Fine tab!
August 31 2010, 03:18 am by Markos_Q19 |

Should be


Shouldn't it?

At the top it says 99 Version. LMAO It IS tuned down.
+1   August 22 2011, 10:42 am by kronnozz |
to be fair, bouth tunning are acctualy correct. there are a Half step down tunning wich they use at the woodstock consert when they play live. Got the original song tunning are standard afaik.
+1   August 22 2011, 10:46 am by kronnozz |
Also it's tunned half step down at the S&M consert yes.

For you that want a clear pick of the concert. it's with an orcestra. As i said in my comment above. It's correct with bouth standard and half step down
August 22 2011, 10:47 am by kronnozz |
And the main reason for the tunning down is because james are SITTING down. so he can't reach the standard tones in his voice.

"Metallica - Nothing else matters '99 version"

It's the S&M version...It's in Eb. LEARN TO READ 10 Year Olds!
February 26 2012, 03:36 pm by MetallicaXX83 |
The part after the open string picking all the way up until James starts singing ****s with me so much. ahhhhhhhhhh! any tips guys?
August 4 2012, 09:43 am by MaggaraMarine |
If something is in an "official" book it doesn't mean it's 100% correct. Actually there are lots of mistakes in tab books. And you don't have to look at tab books to figure out the tuning. USE YOUR EARS, NOOBS! Black Album (except Sad But True) is in standard tuning. But this tab is the 1999 LIVE VERSION. Metallica hasn't used standard since the mid '90s.
December 20 2012, 09:25 am by steelstring14 |
it is played in regular tuning not that half step down crap
February 21 2013, 12:59 pm by Aydar1997 |

Listen its not tuned down at all. it sounds correct when it is in standard tuning other wise it sounds crappy when tuned down a half step

Standard or Half Step.. WHO CARES! Just enjoy the song!!!

it's just james's rhythm and kirks solo... where's kirk's verse???

the verse is not played with chords; thumb finger/single notes of the chords you have

The interlude is sooo wrong :/

Lack of accuracy.

I've played this since the 90's on my ovation acoustic with original sheet published by Metallica. Didn't play for a while due to personal stuff and am practicing to get back in the swing. I lost my original sheet music that was published by Metallica and recently wanted to get back into guitar with this song since its a good exercise. This tab is sooooooooo wrong. Some positions are almost impossible to carry out. This one is placing an incorrect fret and string position at so many times as if trying to achieve a desired note with no regard to technique. I feel I need to be a contortionist to play this transcription. Thanks for the attempt but check your interpretation. This is very inaccurate in relation to the original.
August 29 2014, 09:35 am by sovereignty |
Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong.
August 29 2014, 09:44 am by sovereignty |
And to confirm YES IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE STANDARD TUNING! To the ones that argued saying that Metallica played drop half step at the S&M concert...hello...the S&M venue came almost a decade after the black album was published. They can do whatever in a concert. Original was not dropped. They went for a different sound for S&M. I've played for over 20 years and Metallica has usually been one of my go to's for warming up. If you take this exact tablature and drop the tuning it in no way sounds like the original from the black album.
September 2 2014, 04:19 pm by DimpHob |
Eb is not something you can tune to
September 9 2014, 08:25 pm by liferoni |

If you guys get a chance check out the solo cover I did for this song. Link to my YouTube is on my prefile here on UG. Awesome tab man!!
January 2 2015, 02:13 pm by jbriones1223 |
The 10th measure should be this:

you can slow down the song to double check
January 2 2015, 02:25 pm by jbriones1223 |
It seems like some of you are confused about finger picking, so here is a short explanation:
Use your thumb to pick the E, A, and D strings
Use your index finger for the G string
Use your middle finger for the B string
Use your ring finger for the e string

You can shift the positions around a bit, like if you need to hit notes on the E and D strings at the same time, but try to get back to the main position after moving around

Secondly, the arpeggio is not accurate... I had the original tab and came here to try to remember but it is not accurate

If you're playing with the Album, STANDARD TUNING....End of Story! I can't believe people are arguing this...if you think this song is Other than might wanna learn how to TUNE your guitar...because you Clearly don't know what Tuning you're in!(and you probably need guitar lessons and to stop doing drugs!).

In the live performance in Nimes France he plays it tuned down half step because the solo played before it is tuned half a step down.

The chord in the chorus is A minor, not A major. Else ways good working (except the tuning thing that guys up there mentioned)!
