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
    ____  ___3___  ___3___  ____  repeat umpteen times....
--|-|--|--|--|--|--|--|--|--|--|-|-----------------------------------------

Riff before solo    (Repeat once)   (Repeat twice with this added to end)

--------------------------------.|-----------------------------------------
-----------5-7-8-----------8-7-5.|---5-7-----------------------------------
--7--4-6-7-------7--4-6-7--------|-8---------------------------------------

Repeat the riff and the extra end and end it like this
-----------------------------------|---------------------------------------

-----------------------------------|---------------------------------------
----5--7-----5--7-----5--7>slide>14|---------------------------------------
--9-------10-------11--------------|---------------------------------------
-----------------------------------|---------------------------------------

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...
