Bat Out Of Hell
Words and Music by Jim Steinman

Tabbed By: Caleb Pedercini
Special Thanks to: Eric Despard

Here it is boys and girls the complete tab to Bat Out of Hell. Hope you like it. Please rate.

This is probably the best tab you'll find online.
For the solo, it's not completley accurate but you can improvise a little if you want.
This song is best played on a guitar with a whammy bar. Since my guitar doesn't have one 
have altered it a little.

The timing might be off in some spots, just listen to the recording. The rythym is not 
but listen to the recording and you'll get it.

  Faster, than any other boy has ever gone (Fill)

 And my skin is raw, but my soul is ripe

 No one’s gonna stop me now

Whammy Bar Dive = Motorcycle crash

 Now I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun.
 Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike.

And the last thing I see is my heart, still beating.
Breaking out of my body, and flying away
Like a bat out of hell.

Wow, you rock dude. I doubt its completely perfect (which isnt meant to offend because i dont think thats possible) but its the only decent effort ive seen online and youve clearly spent ages doing it so i think its going to have to be 5 stars. I can't understand why such an awesome song has so few tabs on the internet.
