Metallica:
Nothing Else Matters on solo guitar Mettalica on the Black Alblum

Tabber: Unknown

First, let me make one thing clear.  When I say solo guitar, I do not
mean the electric guitar solo.  I mean that this way you can play it
by yourself or, in other words, solo.  The song is like a ballad at 
about a waltz tempo.

The rhythm and notes aren’t exactly right for the chorus but I like 
this because combines the chords and the melody line (singing)

For this I have combined the two guitar parts so you can play it 
without another person.

Verse 3

Chorus 2:
Never cared_________
For this part, since we’re playing this song solo, you can’t play the
 electric guitar solo.  It won’t sound right without the backup.  I just crecendo on Em, and then I do some arpeggioating with the chords for the verse: Em Em D C Em Em D C Em Em D C G B Em.  You can also strum this part, but it is a nice break from the singing.

Repeat until desired finish.
