Lepper Messiah

As promised, today I'm publishing my transcription of Lepper Messiah by Metallica. If you know the so-called official score book, you're in for a shock! The whole intro is different as well as many other smaller parts.

The truth is that it's really hard to get to the gist of the riffs when listening only to the studio version. I have found several interesting live performances, including few where only Rob Trujillo is heard - that made a ton of difference. Also, I might be wrong but I think Hetfield quad-tracked some of the parts in the studio.  Hence, this is more the transcription of a live version than of the studio one.
