Fade To Black Bass Tab

Fade to Black
from Ride the Lightning

In this song bass line #1 is repeated a number of times
Since Cliff Burton was such a badass he played something
different each time.  I didn't bother transcribing out each
variation of bass line #1, because you really can't tell the
difference and it sounds fine.


The beginning of this song is just the guitar solo that
I have marked as intro.  Basically you just play along with the
bass drum.

After playing that a couple of times you play this fill
