Looking for a collaborator - Fade to Black

Hello fellow strummers,

I have been working on this track for a while. I am now working on the outro solo and a thought came to me. I am wondering if anyone would be interested in taking on an instrumental version of the vocals for this track. I think slide guitar would work well, but it doesn't need to be. I know my Swamp Witch would be great for this, but I have logged many many hours on this song and I think a fresh take would be cool. Besides, I don't know how to transcribe the vocals anyway. Oh, if someone wants to sing that would be great too!

A.D. EKER, I can certainly make an MP3 of it!  I'm not sure what lyrics you found but here are the lyrics.

Its a great rendition to the song, i had a look at the lyrics ,but i find them hard to relate to that is if im correct in the Metalica version, but you do the Playing justice!  great tone on the Fuzz/Distortion/overdrive solo's ,you got this all on MP3?

You nailed it  Kevin, if Metallica does a nice ballad, that’s the song! I agree with AP!

Awesome stuff man , time permitting  , i would suggest Jim Morris  adding voice with his  witch , he seems to have a knack for that .

Time to move on, I guess.  That was a great spot.
