By Cliff BurtonTranscribed from Metallica "Kill 'Em All" bass guitar series book publishedby Cherry Lane Music Company distributed by Hal Leonard Publishing Corporation.Notes:  Yeah, I'm sure you actually want to read some notes about this song.Cliff Burton was a master on the bass guitar--he used numerous techniquesin this song, so I will try to explain them here.Wah and distortion are used throughout the song.  The distortion is on allof the time, but the wah is applied only at certain points.  The points aremarked with a + when the wah is closed (trebly sound) and a o when the wahis open (normal bass sound).A lot of bended notes are used.  My notation is, for example 17b(18)r(17).This means, fret and strike the 17th fret, bend up to the pitch of the 18thfret, then release back to the 17th fret.  If there is no 'r(17) then it meansto bend up to the 18th fret but don't release back to the original tone.When Tapping technique is used, a "T" above the tapped note is used.  At theend of the song, artifical harmonics are produced by tapping.  A fret ispressed down, and another fret is tapped.  In notation form, the fretted noteis written and the tapped fret is in paren's, i.e., 12(19) means hold on 12thfret and tap the 19th fret with a left hand finger.  This has to be done quickly and precisely to get the harmonic tone.  Practice it--sounds nice.Cliff does some tremelo picking toward the end of the song also.  This isdenoted by slashes underneath the note that is being tremelo picked.  Tremelopicking is done by very quickly picking the note--as fast as you can (as inlike 32nd notes).Lastly, the very end of the song has some weird stuff going on.  Cliff dragshis right-hand nails along the E and A strings from the first fret up theneck, then begins tapping the open D and G strings against the pick-upsin a sixteenth note rhythm pattern.  This is how the song ends, and Whiplashcomes in.    This is a masterpiece bass solo, in my opinion.  It's hard to learn, esp.the triplets and different techniques he uses...but once you learn it, it sounds great!  Good luck.R.
