Helpless ( off the $5.98 Lp - Garage Days Revisited )
as played by Metallica

Rythmn Fig 1.                     Bridge into chorus
[ Tab from: ]
                                ||            Hold These chords
   A B        F#          Repeat|| A B        F# D E F#   D E F#
A|-0-2-0h2p0----4-----4-----4---||-0-2-0h2p0--4--5-7-4- 9-5-7-4-----|
                                                 Pick real Fast and alot

By this ( ) I mean hold the B chord with your ring finger and just perform the
hammer and pull-offs with your index finger. Repeat This rythmn figure until
you hit the bridge to the chorus. The Bridge into the chorus has a bunch of
power chords which are held. Listen to the tune and you'll get the picture.... 

 Chorus (Lyrics go 'HELPLESS....!')

   Part 1                            Part 2             Part 3
   A                      repeat 3x| A         G      | A         G   A

By this I mean play Part 1 three times, then play Part 2. Then you play Part 1
three times again and finish the chorus with Part 3. Work with me on this 
one... I'm not sure about the part 1 section... but this is close....

Now return to ryth. Fig 1 amd play it till you hit the chorus a second 
time... do the chorus again and then play rythmn Fig 1 again until you hit the
little Newstead bass solo, after which you hit a second bridge. I prefer to
enter into this section with a jumping, banging pick slide. In other words I 
bounce the pick off the low E, A and D while sliding the edge down the 
fretboard... Anyway it sounds real cool...

Bridge 2
