Band: Metallica
Song: Seek & Destroy
Album: Kill 'em All (1983)
Bassist: Cliff Burton
Tuning: Standard

Note:
I made this tab based on the bass master track of the song, so you can be
completely sure that this tab is 100% correct. 

You can hear the bass master track here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXZh-v5ZlKA

Also note that during the chorus there is another bass track with Wah
effect over the clean track.

The time marked in the tab is based on the song included on Kill 'em All,
not on the master track.
