Hey people it's great to see such good reviews for this tab. It's only been a couple months and the replies have been great. No I didn't copy this tab off of that other website because the one on the other website is wrong. I probably won't be tabbing much anymore cuz I'm kind of busy and nobody has requests for me anymore. That guy that wrote the thing about him and his fuckbag fred is fucking gross! That's the nastiest shit I've ever heard in my life! It is kinda funny though because he put all that shit in one sentence. About the pedal question. I don't know about what he plays live, but in the studio, Kirk uses: Stereo Chorus, Ibanez Tube Screamer, Equalizer, and Cry Baby Wah. Samson Wireless for cables. Custom ESP "Skully" for guitar (he also uses LTD, Jackson, Gibson, and Fender). In Fade to Black, he uses his Gibson Flying V. Other Stuff: 2 Mesa Boogie Strategy 400 power amps, VHT power amp, ADA MP-1 pre amp (studio), Bradshaw pre amp, ADA EQ (studio), Boss SE-50, and Evintide H 3000 all plugged into his (2) Marshall 4x12's with 25 watt speakers. In the studio, James uses (pedals) MXR Phase 100, Electroharmonix Bass Synthesizer, Stereo Chorus, Cry Baby Wah, Digitech Whammy pedal, and Brown Source Distortion. Sony WRR-840 Wireless System. ESP and LTD are all that I've ever seen James play with in the studio as far as guitars are concerned (although I did see him play with a Gibson double neck, Fenders, Classicals, and other acoustics in the making of "The Black Album" DVD. Other stuff: 2 Mesa Boogie Strategy 400 power amps, Mesa Boogie Tri-axis preamp, T-C Electronics M 2000 Effects processor, 2 Mesa Boogie Graphic EQs (Custom), and (2) Mesa Boogie 4x12's with Celestion Vintage 30 Speakers. All of that stuff is plugged into a Juice Goose Power Strip. All of James' and Kirk's amps are hot rodded (so I heard) and I wouldn't sp

AWESOME! sounds perfect :)
-7   November 10 2003, 12:00 am by Pollo |
duh, its the same as in my book, anybody could of just copied it from the book.
+2   November 13 2003, 12:00 am by Kinetix |
Everything is perfect but I do have one question. You know in the beginning of the song when kirk plays this part:
---14-19-14----...etc.
-15--------15--...etc
-------------16...etc.
I heard that he actually plays the whole sequence in a rake manner without starting on the 15th fret but rather elsewhere. Reason I say this is it would probably be easier to play without having to do that big 14-19 stretch because thats what screws me up. But I haven't been able to find that version anywhere so if any one can fill me in post it here on the comments so everyone can see.
+3   December 25 2003, 12:00 am by Oswald |
This song is ***ing great and I love it but I have problem hearing were he shifts structures off the riffs.
+3   December 25 2003, 12:00 am by FearDEA |
good tab, but i have a book that has those same tabs in it, so its one of two things, u are really good at this, or someone has finally put the right damn tabs up, anyway its good, not saying u copied it all or anything.

silent scream, mute the middle string by letting your fringer rest on it. So use your index for the 12 on the D string but let the side of you finger touch it, then take your 2nd or middle to play the other 12 on B.
+2   June 24 2005, 12:00 am by askurmoran |
man u guys are asses if you say he copied it out of a book first of all books are actually made by other people who tab out the song too u dumb ass people who acuse a good tabber just cus u cant make a tab that good

This was an excellent tab. You ought to make more tabs on other songs. If you didn't copy it, then how did you get it so exact? I think its awesome! Keep it up. I learned how to do that metallica thing at the top in the 9th grade. Ofcourse its been 3 years so I have to remember how to do it.

kick ass tab! It helped me a lot.
+3   October 9 2005, 07:57 pm by warlockmaster21 |
THIS TAB DESERVES 5 STARS. ITS awsome but here's the way to play the 1st solo's 14-19 part without the 14-19. some dude said that he wanted the other version so here's how to lay the raked version(this guys tab is correct though, this is just another way to play that little part)
e|-----19------------------------------------|
B|---19--19----20-19-------------------------|
G|-19------19-------19--21-19-18-------------|
D|-----------21-------19--------21-19b21r19v-|
YOU CAN BARRE WITH YOUR MIDDLE OR FIRST FINGER HERE AND IT WILL ALL BE "EASIER". I JUST FIND IT HARDER THOUGH, BECAUSE THE FRETS ARE SMALLER AND YOU HAVE TO CRAM ALL YOUR FINGERS INTO THOSE FRETS. ANOTHER THING IS THAT IF YOU CAN'T PLAY THIS PART THE CORRECT WAY, THEN YOU'RE CHEATING ON YOUR SKILLS. YOU SHOULD LEARN IT THE CORRECT WAY. SORRY FOR TYPING IN CAPS LOCK. OH YEAH AND RATE MY MASTER OF PUPPETS TAB.

Boy, this looks like a great tab, but the thing that sucks is i'm JUST now learning how to play guitar (Electric, Acoustic blow), but I wish I knew how to understand this stuff, but I guess it will be at least another year or so before I do. :(

If anybody feels like helping me learn these notes and stuff, my AIM messenger is- Gravedadio666, and my e-mail is- jacob_roehling@hotmail.com, THANK.

awesome tab, but some lyrics or labels would it make it a FUCK of a lot easier to understand, but 5 stars just for how Fucking accurate and complete and awesome it is!
January 19 2006, 04:23 pm by XxLloydxX |

wow, tht doesnt work
April 24 2006, 06:54 pm by necr0mancer |
I hate to pay for tab books or sit in a store and rip away at a brand new guitar trying to figure shit out so if this dude copied it from a tab book that is cool with me. I also like the additional information the author added in the comments section. No matter what the complaint is, the fact remains that mark 420 is very educated in Metallicology.

good tab, the chorus sounds shit when i play it..thats just me probably.........the guy who asked about the pedal for the 1st solo, instead of a chorus im certain he uses a wah pedal, in the "up" position, and he double tracked that first solo
July 9 2006, 01:28 am by metallica100 |
what scale does the 1st solo use

The tab is perfect because it's straight from the official Ride the Lightening tab-book. Nice work on writing it all out and posting it for all to use though. :)
September 21 2006, 05:15 pm by Dark.Munk |
Oh and before some retard says that it can't be out of the official book like this comment:

"man u guys are asses if you say he copied it out of a book first of all books are actually made by other people who tab out the song too u dumb ass people who acuse a good tabber just cus u cant make a tab that good
ps great tab"

I've got the book less than a foot away from my face.

It's copied straight from the book.

You can tell by the two guitars being written on one staff at the interlude before the big solo. The '/'s and the * note is copied straight from the book. Don't try to bluff it mate. But it is a good tab.

what chords r in the intro
November 16 2006, 08:59 pm by metalicatrivium |
I have the Ride the Lightning tab book and the fade to black tab in the book is exactly the same as this one. But oh ****in well. at least there is someone smart enough on here to put tabs on here that are out of the book. At least it is 100% correct. I believe it is in standard tuning. Metallica and Trivium ****in rock!
November 18 2006, 10:29 pm by cyclo180 |

Awesome tab for an awsome song
February 7 2007, 12:57 am by slug |
I got a question. Does someone know the real and the, I guess easiest way, of playing this part. Should one press the 7 fret e & b strings by holding the index finger over these two, like a quarter of a barré? So when the pulloff is coming the b string on the 7th fret is already pressed down.

friking amazing tab dude i cant play worth a crap but so far what i can do works great and is dead on. And ps dude u have way to much time on ur hands to add in all the arrow type stuff point to "full" and write Metallica using slashes but n e ways ur awesome and remember to always rock out with ur cock out lol
March 17 2007, 08:12 am by beatonthebrat80 |
To make things clear, do you really think Metallica would make a tab book. No many different people tab the books there is really no such thing as a offical tab book but if there is such a offical tab book pls post comment on here I'd love to see it lol. PS Nice tab its near perfect.
March 17 2007, 06:55 pm by a7xsoad |
WOW this tab is brilliant... only browsing already know the song off by heart... but jst admiring ur very clever and clear ways of showing bends and shit...... brilliant and very effective.... well done
March 19 2007, 09:33 am by mfkr |
Awsome tab, but what do the ^ mean again? I think it's bend but that just confuses me even more on how to play the first solo bit.

This tab might be good but...

Layout? I mean come on... number of repeats? Times? And put h, p, s, b or / for the hammerons, pulloffs etc, not ^ with the letter above it. I'm ranting over nothing really but still I hate your layout. Awesome tab though.

awesome tabing bro
April 13 2007, 11:14 am by Paul Lambeth |
Actually other people have mentioned it, I'm just saying it's nicer to see a tab with timings of different sections and an a little personal touch ;). And Paul's a guy's name, so "bitch" actually doesn't make sense :(. And I did put twice it's an awesome tab.

in the verses you only strum the Am chord and in the C and G you play the 2 or 3 lower strings

and in this part:
P.M.--------------------|
|------------------------|
|-5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-|
|-5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-|
|-2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2-|
|------------------------|
|-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-|

you actually play:
|------------------------|
|------------------------|
|-2*-2*-2*-2*-2*-2*-2*-2*|
|-2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2-|
|-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-|
*= optional, only if you want play

Only problem I had was with the final riff right before the solo, it seemed a little more complicated then it needed to
be. Otherwise 5 stars
January 10 2008, 04:21 pm by wasco100 |

Lol! It's been six years, and still comments appear.
And by the way people, STOP posting the damn insignia for metallica.
We get it. It's awesome. Move on.
I've been learning the acoustic part of this song, so if I need to look at the tab, I'll look at this sometimes. Thanks, man.

sorry bout the double post but just thouught I'd say, if you're looking for a pedal for this or any metallica song, get yourself the Boss PW-10 V-Wah. it has just abouut every setting you need on it from metal down to blues etc. Hefty price tag but it's worth it.

hey dude, great tab. it's just that when i follow along with the song, i get lost. Looks like you ran it all together with no spaces between the acoustic and electric. It'd be cool if you could add the lyrics in or space out the tab when the electric pauses. thanks!

newrocker5281, the original version is in standard tuning, a few live versions are in different tunings, but this tab is for the studio version so it sould be ok :)

mark_4:20 u need to edit this tab and put in gtr1, gtr2, and put like verse chorus or intro solo or something like that. other wise its a pretty good tab!!! I atleast want you to label what part is what like i had said verse chorus and all that shit. but overall nice tab!!!

How is the acoustic part played? Fingerstyle sounds good, but on the record I hear a pick strumming. However, it is harder to play the more intricate acoustic parts (during the verse) with a pick.

Or is it a mix of both?

Small mistake. At the end of electric intro, instead of playing the end of the build up as 12 (h) 13 (h) 15, it should be 13 (h) 15 (p) 13.

|-----| Please tell me what you mean by that because Metallica uses
|-(0)--| A minor, C major, G, and E minor. But I don't see the G chord
|--0--|
|-----|
|-----|
|--3--|
_____________________________________________________________
well the 3 on the low E is a G, the root,
open G is a G, the octave,
and the open B is a B, the 3rd.

just because it isnt like this
|--3--|
|--0--|
|--0--|
|--0--|
|--2--|
|--3--|
doesnt mean its not a G. i f u look it includes some of the notes in this chord.

Here are some other common ones:
|--3--|--3--|
|--3--|--3--|
|--4--|--0--|
|--5--|--0--|
|--5--|--2--|
|--3--|--3--|

to warlockmaster: i actually like the intro part on the 19th better. IMO, it doesnt matter how you do it, just that you get it done, as guitarists, i think that we should do things the way thats its comfortable, but thats just me..

great tab my favorite metallica song only in the beginning, i think it goes like this:

HERE

|----(19)--17--15----------15--17-|-14----------------------|
|-14------------------------------|----15-------------------|
|-----16--------------------------|-------16----------------|
|---------------------------------|-------------------------|
|---------------------------------|-------------------------|
|---------------------------------|-------------------------|

its the rite note, that B natural, i think its an octave lower on the G string.

oh well, you can barely tell the difference.

great job!

Awesome tab!!! It's about time someone on UG only posted tabs that were correct. Since you obviously know how to play guitar very well, I want you to look at a couple of tabs I made that were rejected by UG, but they are correct. Anyway, great tab, keep up the good work! I also have a request for you to tab since you're amazing. Try tabbing "Into The Mouth Of Hell We March" by Trivium. Good luck with the insane solo. The only part I could tab was the easy intro, which goes like this:
e- 2h3p2----2h3p2---2-3-0~-2h3p2----2h3p2----2-3-7~-
B- ------3-1-----3-1------------3-1------3-1--------
G- -------------------------------------------------
D- -------------------------------------------------x2
A- -------------------------------------------------
E- -------------------------------------------------
If you can finish tabbing that for me, you are the best guitar player on UG.

Yeah I agree with Rampant Hero, It is clustered a bit and it would be amazing if you organized it more, But great tab none-the-less

Just one question. What does the electric do during the acoustic parts? Something with harmonics.

great tab best one on UG definitly

hey good tab. it's good that u put it on here and i would say good work but i bet you just copied and pasted it off another website.

Max, I don't think the electric does anything during the acoustic parts.

Great tab, still need to learn the solo though.

In the first solo I think its not like this:
|------------------------------------------19-17-15-|
|---------------14-15-14^15^14----14^15-14----------|
|---------14-16----------------16-------------------|
|--14^16--------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------|

I think its like this:
|-------------------------------------19-17-15-|
|---------------14-15-14^12^14-15-14-----------|
|---------14-16--------------------------------|
|--14^16---------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------|

Does anyone else have trouble with that part? I can't remember what it had in the book (which I sold, and what this tab is copied from). It doesn't sound like it's played like that at all.

this was a very good tab. there was only minimal errors to this song, and most of them were probably on accident. in the second intro solo that 14 should be on the b string. also the solo after the chorus was wrong. he only used the b string, or else how could he bend at the one section. its simply a petal. and the final solo, i saw a couple of typos, but thats about it. i am extremely impressed on this tab. they did well for my song. i thank you for honor of me writing this review. i definitely would gie this a 5 star rating

I don't see the comment about fred or whatever :( What'd it sayyy!?!?!?!

creepdeathgasm guy, u can bend to notes at the same time, its called a unison bend.

Kick ass accurate tab!!!!
Thanks so much and kudos
Also, if it isnt too much, could you also include kirk's lead fills/harmonies during the verse?
If you listen close enough, in the verse of the song, you can hear Kirk playing different fills as opposed to james' rhythm guitar.
It would really help if you could
Anyway thanks a lot!!!

People need to consider it this way:

1) Either the tabber is so egoistic, pathetic, and useless that he cannot accomplish anything on his own, and must copy the work of others (the book's tab) and pass it off as his own in a narcissistic attempt to receive the adulation and recognition of others, or

2) The tab is his own work, and people are simply envious of his achievement.

If the former case is true, I give my most sincere, unapologetic FUCK YOU to mark_4:20.

If the latter case is true, I give my most sincere, unapologetic FUCK YOU to all the envious ****s who claim he plagiarized.

And I'm inclined to believe the former, because, really, tabbing songs like this, i.e., intermediate level songs, require a lot of time and effort; and he would have to be incredibly pathetic to devote such time and effort to a tab simply because he so desires unmerited recognition.

This goes for ALL tabbers out there who are accused of being plagiarists.

Of course, one may say that he probably never wanted unmerited recognition, and copied out of the book simply because he wanted to share it with the world rather than telling people to buy the book, to which I say: BULLSHIT.

NOBODY'S motives are that pure.

To all those claiming he plagiarized: stop being ****s. Envy gets you nowhere.

GREAT FUCKING TAB.

HELP with the 2nd solo it sounds weird on my guitar

but i belivee this tab is complety correct
August 15 2011, 11:22 pm by metallicamania |
This is very close, but it's definitely not note-for-note what is played on the album; however, I think anyone with a working ear can make the needed corrections themselves.

I like exactly this tab, thank you!

i recommend the "chorus ensemble" pedal for this song. It gives you a perfect fade to black sound
