		Unforgiven -Metallica
		++++++++++

There are actually 4 different guitars played in this song, so it's quite
difficult to type in the whole tabs, so I've left the rhythm guitar and 
some fills off, but here is some kind of version to play along with
I hope you are satisfied. If you need the fills, email me, and I'll
try to find out a way to type them in a way that can be read. The rhythm
figure might be a bit easier, so I might make a ChordPro file out of it.

The timing should be right, 1/8 note equals to 0---, 1/16 to 0- etc.)

I've used two .s to indicate the repeat mark in the notes, I hope it doesn't
bother you

Slowly ( 0--- =69 )

Additional Lyrics:

2. They dedicate their lives to running all of his
He tries to please them all, this bitter man he is
Throughout the life the same, he's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win. A tired man they see no longer cares.
The old man then prepares to die regretfully
That old man here is me. (To Chorus)

Subject: TAB:  Unforgiven by Metallica (solo)

Date:  5-12-97
Tabbed by:  Luke Chase (the next Jimi Hendrix, from Elk Mound High 
School)

I've looked everywhere on the net and couldn't find a tab for the guitar
solo in The Unforgiven.  Well, here it finally is!  Tabbing this out was 
a
very painstaking process because I had to use the Midi To Tab program to
convert The Unforgiven midi into tablature, then I had to go through and 
fix
it because the midi wasn't completely accurate.  Enuf complaining... so 
here
it is!!!

About the artist behind The Unforgiven Tab:

Metallica is an American heavy metal band that formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, California. Founded when drummer Lars Ulrich posted an advertisement in a Los Angeles newspaper, Metallica's original line-up consisted of Ulrich, rhythm guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield, lead guitarist Dave Mustaine, and bassist Ron McGovney. McGovney and Mustaine were later ejected from the band, in favor of Cliff Burton and Kirk Hammett, respectively. The ejection of Mustaine resulted in a feud between him and Metallica. In September 1986, Metallica's tour bus skidded out of control and flipped, which resulted in Burton being crushed under the bus and killed. Jason Newsted replaced him less than two months later. Newsted left the band in 2001 and was replaced by Robert Trujillo in 2003.

Metallica's early releases included fast tempos, instrumentals, and aggressive musicianship that placed them as one of the "Big Four" of the thrash metal subgenre alongside Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. The band earned a growing fan base in the underground music community, and some critics say the 1986 release Master of Puppets is one of the most influential and "heavy" thrash metal albums. The band achieved substantial commercial success with its self-titled 1991 album Metallica, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Some critics and fans believed the band changed its musical direction to appeal to the mainstream audience. With the release of Load in 1996, Metallica distanced itself from earlier releases in what has been described as "an almost alternative [rock] approach", and the band faced accusations of "selling out."

In 2000, Metallica was among several artists who filed a lawsuit against Napster for sharing the band's copyright-protected material for free without the band members' consent. A settlement was reached, and Napster became a pay-to-use service. Despite reaching number one on the Billboard 200, the release of St. Anger in 2003 disappointed some critics and fans with the exclusion of guitar solos, and the "steel-sounding" snare drum. A film titled Some Kind of Monster documented the recording process of St. Anger.

Metallica has released eight studio albums, two live albums, two EPs, nine videos, and is working on a ninth studio album. The band has become one of the most commercially successful and influential heavy metal acts. With over 95 million records sold worldwide, including 57 million in the United States, the band has won seven Grammy Awards, and has had four albums peak at number one on the Billboard 200.[1] The band's 1991 album Metallica, has sold over 15 million copies, which makes it the 25th highest selling album in the United States.[2]
