Sad But True Free Lesson Video

Hey Guys! Thanks so much for requesting the awesome cover of Kid Rock song by Metallica. All jokes aside, here’s some notes about the tune.

I had a lot of fun doing this song because it’s so heavy and tempo is just so in the zone. The only thing I didn’t tab out is the background guitar effect that’s a little hidden in the original mix. They don’t do this live and I had to make an educated guess as to what’s going on there. But the guitars that are played live, it’s there in the tab.

What should be the next Metallica song? Old or New?

Isolated TRACKS (mp3)

Here are the drums, bass and other background tracks to jam along to Sad But True. I've also included all of my isolated guitar tracks in case you really want to hear what's going on. Isolated tracks are normally very difficult to find online, and can be very helpful in cracking a difficult solo tab.
