Megadeth
Bass Tab for A Secret Place
Transcribed by Mark Smeets
http://www.smartt.com/~jsmeets/stranger/Front.htm

Notes: You really need a 5 or 6 string for this song but there are 3 ways to
       play it. You can use a 5 or 6 string and save yourself the trouble of
       worrying about the lower notes. You can also play it in standard
       tuning or you can also tune your E down 1/2 a step.

Terms: Percussive pause - The act of hitting one of your strings in a
       "percussive manner" i.e. not playing an actal note, just kind of
       hitting the string. Most of the time this is marked by an "X" in most
       tab books.

       Riding the strings - Take the current note you are on, and slide up
       that string till you reach the note that is just ABOVE the fret.

Standard Tuning

Intro: Hit w/bass drum

Solo - Hold D
Notes: I'm not totally sure how many notes are in the solo. No matter,
nothing changes in that part as it is. So, just play the rythm. After the
solo is done, Dave does his Vocal solo. As he does this, Nick hits the High
Hat 16 times (i.e. Hold for 16), you hear a Drum Roll and David slides up
and down the bass neck. There is a sudden stop/percussive pause and then the
bass drum hits begin.

Repeat this 14 times           |Hold for 16   |Drum Roll|
