  • Metallica - Sad But True

    Hi all!

    Welcome to my newest cover. This time I will make an attempt to cover one of Metallica's greatest hits, entitled "Sad But True". This song is from their fifth studio album commonly known as the "Black Album". It is the second track. This is Metallica's first
    attempt at tuning down, and this song is tuned down to D.

    This song is fairly easy to play, even the solos are completely doable by almost all level of guitarists.

    This song is heavy, not because of the D tuning, but because of the rhythm parts as well.
    The structure of the song is as follows:

    Intro: Bar 1-6
    Main Riff: Bar 7-15
    Verse 1: Bar 16-23
    Chorus: Bar 24-31
    Main Riff: Bar 7-15
    Verse 2: Bar 16-23
    Chorus: Bar 24-31
    Main Riff: Bar 32-35
    Bridge: Bar 39-48
    Solo 1: Bar 49-59
    Chorus: Bar 59-66
    Solo 2: Bar 67-71
    Verse 3: Bar 75-83
    Chorus: Bar 24-31
    Outro: Bar 82-85

    The tuning is as follows: D, G, C, F, A, D

    Have fun practicing!
