Holier Than Thou by Metallica
Transcription by Tim Scott

This is a non-spoon feeding type of tab.  It gives enough information
on how to play the song and leaves the player the task of counting
how many times a rhythm is played, the changes, etc...

Intro Rhythm 1

I haven't got the solo entirely down (that damn wah-wah screws me up) but
I also don't plan on posting it when I do...So good luck with that..

With this info you should be able to figure out most if not all of the
song...Have fun with it...
