You know that song from Kill 'Em All that starts with a bass solo?
Is there any way i can like move it up a couple octaves or something so I can play it on guitar,because It's pretty badass.

Just use bass tablature and learn it. Remember the four strings on a bass are the same tuning as the first for strings on your guitar, so the bass tabs are technically already transcribed for guitar, but just raised an octave.

Of course you can play it on guitar. (Guitar is one octave above bass btw)

There's really no way to make it sound similar.


Of course you can. You can emulate it quite easily using the right effects.

It uses a wah, and I think distortion.



Cliff uses both, I started to learn it one day.

Using Guitar Pro you could take the bass part and change it to guitar. It would re-tab it so it sounds as close as possible.

Okay, I suppose. But I think it would be better to just buy a bass.

And to whoever said it, I don't think a guitar is one octave above a bass, it's just a matter of treble. I think. A bass is just deeper sounding.

OK,thanks you guys.

Could you play it on a 7-string?

I don't think you really get it... I mean, sure you could, but that seventh string ain't gonna make much of a difference.

Nope, a bass is tuned an octave lower. That is why you have mega fatty strings.

oK,how do you get Guitar pro software do you have to buy it or what?

Don't bother. Just look at the tab for it and learn it. Your guitar will only be an octave up, if you try to transpose it you won't be able to learn the whole thing.

Just remember you shouldn't ever use your High e or B string.

I'm 99% sure that guitar is one octave above bass. Guitar is also one octave below "actual pitch notation" i think it's called.

It's got more to it then just the solo, drums come in and so does guitar.
Soon you will sit on the bench

I'm pretty sure there's no guitar at all in it. He just picks up the tempo and drums come in.

There is no guitar, it's all Cliff on the bass and Lars on the drums.

It is one octave higher. I got the tab and played it on guitar, and it sounded fine. My bassyist friend played it, and mine sounded jus like his (actually, mine was better; I'm better at guitar than he is at bass; He's only been playing a few months, like 7 months or so)
