Guitar tabs with lyrics

My Friend of Misery
                                         by
                                      Metallica
                             As heard on the Metallica CD

Transcribed and tabbed by: William Poire

	I noticed that there aren’t any guitar tablatures of
this song, so I made it my privilege to tab the first
one!
	The way this song is tabbed is fairly simple.  Upon
examination, you will find that some tabs are tied
together or connected by lines.  These are to be
played by two (2) guitars.  When this song is listened
to through headphones, the listener can hear the top
tablature panned to one separate ear with the lower
tablature to the other ear.  The parts where there are
just one tab is basically both guitars playing the
same thing.
	I still have yet to figure out the last solo.  If
anyone has the solo, please update it, or send it to
me and I’ll update it.  I didn’t wanna get TOO
technical (but I did).  Just listen to the song to get
a good understanding of the song.
