    <em>Sad but True</em> is the 2nd track from Metallica's "sellout" 
    <a href="">self-titled album</a>,
    released in 1991. It's less thrash-metal and more... I don't know. <em>Better</em>
    metal. I wanted to do a solo from this album that wasn't <em>Enter Sandman</em>
    (although I may do that one, too, just for fun). Also, conveniently, this song
    is downtuned a whole step to D, just like
    <glacius:link page="music/projects/forsaken-solo">Dream Theater's <em>Forsaken</em></glacius:link>,
    so I didn't have to retune my guitar. And that's always a big win in my book.

    I also didn't want to a true thrash-metal solo, as I'll need to practice
    my downstroking for the rhythm parts. I need to work my way up to that.
