                Creeping Death

Creeping Death from the Ride the Lightning album, as played by Cliff
Burton. The link to the master bass track is here:
This bassline is EXTREMELY different from what everyone else has tabbed,
even more different than Orion. This took quite a while to do, but the
good news is that it's a keeper. =D Enjoy.

FAST!!! Hit the two strings with the inside of your fingers (same side as
palm) as fast as you can, end chords on guitars' last note!


Phew! That was a tricky one, especially for the choruses. The verses and
choruses took me almost two hours all together to get down on their own!
Well, here we are. Hope you like it.

Key
====
|Triplet| OR |Tr| - play indicated notes as triplets
Note tablature followed by x's on each line (NEW) - Play through the
x'd sections as normal, but when repeating, ignore x'd sections
(i.e. some sections say (Play x#), so don't play the x'd sections
when playing the riffs that many times)
#h#h# - Hammer-on/Pull-off to/from the indicated fret (i.e. 2h3h2)
#\ OR /# OR /#\ - Slide from/to one fret down/up the fretboard
