Band: Metallica
Song: The End of the Line
Album: Death Magnetic (2008)
Bassist: Robert Trujillo
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=f-x-dfAETfM

The time marked in the tab is based on the song included on Death
Magnetic, not on the master track.
