From "Ride the Lightning" by Metallica
Transcribed by Carl Culpepper
Keyed in by A.J.Harsley
Notes by AJH:
 
 -------------

I've tried to include as much information below as is given in the
original tablature. It might make it more difficult to understand but it's all
there if you want it. At the top of each section of tab is the chord for the
bar (bar lines included). I haven't included note lengths or rests. You'll have
to listen to the actual song and work them out for yourself. The bar lines
should give you an idea towards timing. The song's in 4/4 time, 116 bpm.
All tab markings are at the top of the tab. Markings used:
P - pull off.
H - hammer on.
T - tap - fret at note shown, tap at note in brackets.
.---. - sustained note.
sl - slide.
vibrato - vibrate string. (or use tremolo).
)\ - bend and release
/ \
) - string bend (usually full - f)
[/]// - repeat previous beat (used for 1/16 notes)
'/, - repeat previous measure (bar)
x - rake - drag pick across strings shown from low to high
