Newsgroups: rec.music.makers.bass
Subject: BTAB: Metallica - Kill 'em all
From: wfpol@cs.ruu.nl (Wilbert Pol)


The people who transcribed it :

Jeff Jacobson - Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth
Andy Aledort - Jump in the Fire
Steve Gorenberg - the rest

The only thing I've done is converting them to ascii.

I've put all note lengths below the measures, they are :
w - whole note
h - half note
q - quarter note
e - eigth note
s - sixteenth note
t - thirty-second note
l - long note ('fermate' sign)
x+y - play note with length x+y

/ - a couple of these mean you have to fill the length with
    1. eight notes         (1 slash)   or
    2. sixteenth notes     (2 slashes) or
    3. thirty-second notes (3 slashes)

R - in the tab denotes a rest.
x - an undefined or muted note.
[ 3 ] - a triplet

/ - slide up
/(X) - slide up to fret X, but don't pick X
\ - slide down
\(X) - slide down to fret X, but don't pick X
T - tap note
Harm - harmonic
A.H. - Artificial harmonic

inside bar :
p - pull off
h - hammer on
bx - bend string x notes up
bx r - bend string x notes up and release string

a note without a length indication, means a 'ghost' note (The little notes
that occur in sheet music sometimes).

cresc. - crescendo  (Play louder and louder, 'fade in')

||--  --||
||-o  o-||  - a repeat
||-o  o-||

|  X  |

                                                   Wilbert Pol

Lyrics :
 1. No life 'till leather
    We're gonna kick some ass tonight
    Got the metal madness
    When our fans start screamin' it's right, Well alright  Yeah

    When we start to rock we never, will stop again
    Hit the lights
    Hit the lights
    Hit the lights

 2. Know our fans are insane
    We're gonna blow this place away
    With volume higher
    Than anything today. The only way

    When we start to rock we never, will stop again
    Hit the lights
    Hit the lights
    Hit the lights

 3. With all out screamin'
    We're gonna rip right through your brain
    We got the lethal power
    It's causin' you sweet pain, Oh, sweet pain

    When we start to rock we never, will stop again
    Hit the lights
    Hit the lights
    Hit the lights
    Hit the lights
