Tune Bass to (C,F,Bb,Eb)

Ok, this song is another great one, but it is a little odd on the bass.
It goes from some parts being really basic, and then it gets kinda
complicated at times. As usual, this is close to the recording, with a
few personal touches.

Riff A (First heavy riff, main riff. I really dont think the bass is
playing during the acoustic intro, but if it is, its just going to
be 7's and 5's on the Bb string)
|--------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----3-----3--------------------------------------------------|
|--5-----5-----0--0--0--3--3--3--------------------------------|

Riff B.1 (ok, this is actually how the bass is on the album, however
I find it really dull to play, and I play the melody line the guitars
play, transposed for bass. Either one fits, play what you like more.)

|-----------------------5--------------------------------------|
|--1--5--1--5--1--5--3-----------------------------------------|

Riff B.2 (This is the slightly complicated part I was talking about,
and what I play as opposed to Riff B.1)
|--------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------|
|--3--2-----------------3--3/5---------------------------------|
|--------5--3--0--0--1----------5------------------------------|

Riff B.2 continued
|--------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------2--3--2--------------5--3--2--------------------------|
|--0--5-----------5--3--0--3-----------5--3--3/5--5------------|

Riff C (Chorus, "I'm the moonshield...)
|--------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------|
|--7--7--7--5--7--7--7-----------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------|

From here, go right back into the main riff, there is no pause, the
next note is the 5th fret C string of the main riff.

Riff D.1 (at 2:57)
|--------------------------------------------------------------|

Riff D.2 (at 2:42)

Riff E (During the acoustic solo)

|--7--7--5--5--7--8-----7--5--5--5--3--5--7--------------------|

Riff E cont. (the second time you play this)

|--5--7--7--5--5--7--8-----7--7--5--3--2--5--3-----------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------|


Thats pretty much it, there are alot of repeating parts. As usual, listen
to the song for the order, its pretty self-explanatory. Once again, if
you need Metallica, new Anthrax, Overkill, or Life of Agony tabs, drop
me a line. Comments and questions are encouraged.
