>Subject: The Unforgiven (Part I), Metallica

		Unforgiven -Metallica
		++++++++++

There are actually 4 different guitars played in this song, so it's quite
difficult to type in the whole tabs, so I've left the rhythm guitar and 
some fills off, but here is some kind of version to play along with
I hope you are satisfied. If you need the fills, email me, and I'll
try to find out a way to type them in a way that can be read. The rhythm
figure might be a bit easier, so I might make a ChordPro file out of it.

The timing should be right, 1/8 note equals to 0---, 1/16 to 0- etc.)

I've used "o" to indicate the repeat mark in the notes, I hope it doesn't
bother you

Slowly ( 0--- =69 )
