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

Lyrics :
 1. Scanning the scene in the city tonight
    We're looking for you to start up a fight
    There's an evil feeling in out brains
    But it's nothing new. You know it drives us insane

 Pre-chorus :
    Running. On our way
    Hiding. You will pay
    Dying. One thousand deaths

 Chorus :
    Searching. Seek and destroy
    Searching. Seek and destroy
    Searching. Seek and destroy
    Searching. Seek and destroy

 2. There is no escape and that's for sure
    This is the end we won't take anymore
    Say goodbye to the world you live in
    You've always been taking but now you're giving

 Pre-chorus

 Chorus

 3. Our brains are on fire with the feeling to kill
    And it won't go away until our dreams are fulfilled
    There is only one thing on our minds
    Don't try running away 'cause you're the one we will find

 Pre-chorus

 Chorus
