Metallica Lyrics



Artist: Metallica
Song: Mercyful Fate
Album: Garage Inc.
Bassist: Jason Newsted

Tune down half (1/2) step to D# G# C# F#
or Eb Ab Db Gb (D sharp E flat, same difference.... i hope)

this is one hell of a song. took me a whole f!@#$#ng week to write out so if ya don't
like it, you can shampoo my balls.

TIP: because this song is so friggin' long i suggest that you learn one part at a time
it acctualy isn't that hard to play just hard to remember it all
Enjoy and Rock On,
