Fight Fire With Fire
By: Metallica
Tabbed By: Kane Bochatyn (JenoUnion)

What a fun bass track this was to tab! Cliff played superbly on Fight
Fire With Fire, having a clean backing to the intro with guitar, but also
finds time to kick in heavy distortion during the rest of the song. This
is one of my personal favorites from Metallica, so here you go. Any
questions, comments, or concerns, email me at DarkCloud1916@aolcom OR
CryofthePlanet@hotmail.com. As always, this is based off of Cliff Burton's
original bassline, and the link to it is here:

Enjoy!

EDIT: Thanks to UeharaJunior16 and Dark Wolf 93 for reminding me of the
mistakes of the chords in the intro...Just silly tabbing :P Thanks guys.

Took me a few hours over the span of three weeks, but it's here. Great song, really fun. Enjoy!

Watch out for the "Riff O' Death" parts, those are fast and really hard to get.

Key

Great job! The starting chords may be a little off, I play as follows:
|--4-5-7-9-10-9109-|
|--5-7-9-10~-------|
|------------------|
|------------------|... You get the picture... But other than that, excellent job! First actually good tab of this song I've seen.
