Metallica Chords & Tabs

Version: 1 Type: Bass Tab

Whiplash Bass Tab

Subject: BTAB: Metallica - Kill 'em all
From: (Wilbert Pol)

The people who transcribed it :

Jeff Jacobson - Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth
Andy Aledort - Jump in the Fire
Steve Gorenberg - the rest

The only thing I've done is converting them to ascii.

I've put all note lengths below the measures, they are :
w - whole note
h - half note
q - quarter note
e - eigth note
s - sixteenth note
t - thirty-second note
l - long note ('fermate' sign)
x+y - play note with length x+y

/ - a couple of these mean you have to fill the length with
    1. eight notes         (1 slash)   or
    2. sixteenth notes     (2 slashes) or
    3. thirty-second notes (3 slashes)

R - in the tab denotes a rest.
x - an undefined or muted note.
[ 3 ] - a triplet

/ - slide up
/(X) - slide up to fret X, but don't pick X
\ - slide down
\(X) - slide down to fret X, but don't pick X
T - tap note
Harm - harmonic
A.H. - Artificial harmonic

inside bar :
p - pull off
h - hammer on
bx - bend string x notes up
bx r - bend string x notes up and release string

a note without a length indication, means a 'ghost' note (The little notes
that occur in sheet music sometimes).

cresc. - crescendo  (Play louder and louder, 'fade in')

||--  --||

Lyrics :
 1. Late at night, all systems go, you've come to see the show
    We do our best, yuo're the rest, you make it real you know
    There's a feeling deep inside that drives you fuckin' mad
    A feeling of a hammerhead, you need it oh so bad

 Chorus :
    Adrenaline starts to flow
    You're thrashing all around
    Acting like a maniac
    Whiplash !

 2. Bang your head against the stage like you never did before
    Make it ring, make it bleed, make it really sore
    In a frenzied madness with your leather and your spikes
    Heads are bobbing around, it's hot as hell tonight


 3. Here on stage the Marshall noise is piercing thruogh your ears
    It kicks your ass, kicks your face, exploding feeling nears
    Now's the time to let it rip, to let it fuckin' loose
    We're gathered here to maim and kill 'cause this is waht we choose


 4. Show it through, the metal's gone, it's time to hit the road
    Another town, another gig, again we will explode
    Hotel rooms and motorways, life out here is raw
    But we'll never stop, we'll never quit 'cause we're Metallica
