============================================================
Here are the tabs to the new Metallica song Dirty Window.

These are the correct tabs! Meaning how Metallica plays it.

It's a bit hard to convey timing in tablature, but I did
my best. The song is in 4/4. the main riff is 2 dotted
8th notes followed by an 8th note (in case this helps
anyone out there). Just listen to the song for the timing.
This is my first tab, feel free to email me with comments.
Rock on!

Guitars are in Drop D tuned down 1/2 a step:

1st = Eb (high)
2nd = Bb
3rd = Gb
4th = Db
5th = Ab
6th = Db (low)

Key:

x = muted string
/ = slide up
b = bend
r = release bend
~ = vibrato
PM = Palm mute
