Sweet Amber Tabs & Lyrics by Metallica

Sweet Amber

guitar tabs lyrics

Metallica

Album : St. Anger albums i own PlayStop


This is the tab technically taken from the rehearsals DVD but
since the album is pretty raw It's pretty much the same as the
album version except for at two points:the pre-chorus and the
bridge 2 - I'll tab the album parts for these later if I can figure
them out!.For the intro a whammy pedal is used to add a harmony
note of a fifth above to the dry signal but I've tabbed this for guitar
also, so ignore the tab under the intro if you're using one. The bends
are also easily executed with the slackness of the strings due to the
low tuning. I'm pretty sure it's all there though I've still to add the
palm muting but it's pretty easy to figure out. Rock on!


Gtr 1: Hetfield (dropped C tuning)
Gtr 2: Hammet (dropped C tuning)

Tuning:

6=C 3=F
5=G 2=A
4=C 1=D

Key:
X = mute string(s)
(Y) = optional note
Y^(Z) = bend up to note in bracket
Y^(Z)Y = bend up to note in bracket then back down to original
P.M = palm mute
*|| = repeat bars between asterisks
~ = vibrato
N.H = natural harmonic
