Guitar tabs

BATTERY by Metallica
From the album ¨Master of Puppets¨

	There’s about half a dozen guitar parts on the intro where Jaymz
 layered acoustics, steel strings, spanish guitars and god knows what else.
 One acoustic plays riff  1 and the rest of the layered guitars play along
 the lines of riff 2 (I Think)

Start with Acoustic Riff 1 once and then while that keeps playing Gtr II plays

 Riff 2  Riff 2b Riff2  Riff2

Then the electrics come crashing in:-
