Orion
By: Metallica
Solo Tabbed By: Kane Bochatyn (JenoUnion)

So, decided to tab this amazing bass solo of Cliff's from the song Orion. Maybe
I'll submit a full song tab
soon when I have time. It seems that the verses are way different
than everyone thinks, and the interlude changes a lot.
Well anyway, here's the bass solo, starting around 6:35 of the master track. Any
questions, comments, or concerns
you can contact me at CryofthePlanet@hotmail.com OR DarkCloud1916@aol.com.

Nice, nailed it. But you should add that if you're going to play a harmony with the guitar, play it one octave lower. That's how the album version is
