Battery - taby

Metallica

There’s about half a dozen guitar parts on the intro where Jaymz
layered acoustics, steel strings, spanish guitars and god knows what else.
One acoustic plays riff  1 and the rest of the layered guitars play along
the lines of riff 2 (I Think)

     Weak are ripped  and  torn   away

Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hipnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay




with Fill 1

E5                              C5                   
Smashing through the boundries, lunacy has found me
            F5  F5 F#/Es 
Cannot stop the battery

Riff 3

With Fill 1

E5                      C5                     
Pounding out agression, turned into obsession
            F5  F5 F#/Es 
Cannot kill the battery

Riff 3 (first 2 bars)

E5              B5      G5          F#/Es

Sloha:

Crushing all decievers, mashing non-believers
Never ending potency
Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity

®:

Circle of destruction, hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, dominating flurry
We create the battery
