                Metallica - Orion
                Metallica - The Unforgiven

This is gonna be a short one, no fast or hard riffs and no solo. 
This is the perfect song for a guitarist who has just started or
maybe for you first band because you can make this song yours in
a couple of minutes. This doesn't make this song bad. Personally I
find this song very good.

If you want to add this tab on your site then please leave the tab as it is. If you are not sure
that you have the originial tab mail me. Also, if somebody is using my tab then please mail me.
You can always get the newest verion of the tab at my website.

If you see any white lines between the guitar lines, then make sure you resolution is 
1024 x 768 or greater and that you are using Notepad.

Well, let's play this song.
