    Our 'Tallica boys were listening to a lot of British rock and country (James) when they recorded these tracks (and some of ReLoad's), so that is why it sounds slower or more melodic. But it's still very cool because now it's harder to learn to play. Let...

    me explain, basically producer Bob Rock demanded that Kirk be more involved in the rhythm part of the guitar work, for his sake and to get some of the load of james. The result is a more complex rhythm guitar line that involves two people to play and sound correct rather than just one like previous albums. Simpler riffs are another added feature to the album and as usual tabbed out to the note. Very cool effects are noted in it as well with Kirk using Octavers and other fx. Overall, just another chapter of the Metallica story and another great transcription from Cherry Lane. A must for all Metallica fans.

    It is very accurately transcribed. A few of the solos (Outlaw Torn & 2x4) are a little difficult to play, but seem to be all correct. Recommended.
