Besides the solo, and some very weird arpeggiated notes in the background

Here it is! This is as close as I can figure. Most of it based
on Hetfield's guitar work in the left channel. Like I did with
the CURE tab this song is tabbed staright through but with out
the solo, or whatever that thing is ;) Anyway, any comments and
corrections would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy!

Well,there it is the new Metallica hit off
of Load.
Date: Thu, 5 Dec 1996 17:38:18 -0500 (EST)
From: Christopher J Rizzo
Subject: TAB: Until it Sleeps by Metallica
METALLICA-UNTIL IT SLEEPS
 
 ----------------------------

Tabber: Christopher J. Rizzo
 
 ----------------------------

Here it is! This is as close as I can figure. Most of it based
on Hetfield's guitar work in the left channel. Like I did with
the CURE tab this song is tabbed straight through but with out
the solo, or whatever that thing is ;) Anyway, any comments and
corrections would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy!
