Rhythm Guitar Charts

To do:
Add video of these charts; perhaps on a subpage?

Every Metallica song in the game has a hidden rhythm guitar chart! They can be found in the midi files on the track PART RHYTHM (separate from PART GUITAR and PART BASS). It appears that this feature, found in earlier entries, was set to come back before ultimately being scrapped.

Though the final game only allows the player to choose between lead guitar and bass, the rhythm guitar charts can be viewed using a midi editor, and are fully playable when imported into Clone Hero.
