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  |

|  %  |  - repeat previous bar

Lyrics :
 1. By the last breath the four winds blow
    Better raise your ears
    The sound of hooves knock at your door
    Lock up your wife and children now
    It's time to wield the blade
    For now you've got some company

 Chorus :
    Horsemen are drawing nearer
    On leather steeds they ride
    They've come to take your life
    On through the dead of night
    with the Four Horsemen ride
    or choose your fate and die !

 2. You've been dying since the day you've been born
    You know it's all been planned
    The quartet of deliverance rides
    A sinner once, a sinner twice
    No need for confession now
    'Cause now you've got the fight of your life

 Chorus

 Bridge :
    Time has taken it's toll on you
    The lines that crack your face
    Famine, your body it has torn through
    Withered in ev'ry place
    Pestilence, for what you had to endure
    For what you have put others through
    Death, deliv'rance for you for sure
    Now there's nothing you can do

 3. So gather round young warriors now
    And saddle up your steeds
    Killing scores with demon swords
    Now is the death of doers of wrong
    Swing the judgment hammer down
    Safely inside armor, blood, guts and sweat

 Chorus
