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.





   Intro (keep repeating)
