SONG:   HANGAR 18
ARTIST: MEGADETH
ALBUM:  RUST IN PEACE

TABBED BY:GARETH RICHARDS
EMAIL: jackslackofsurprise@hotmail.com

this one's a beauty! if you can pull this one off everyone will be
impressed! this is another example of how dave ellefson is a subtle and
under rated bass genius. it's in drop D tuning which doesn't often make
things easier but this time it does. for the verse riff i'm going to
contract my notation so it will look sixteenths but it's really eights to
save on space.

 4/4                  x 15

                             REPEAT WHOLE SECTION THEN...

                      (     3     )



the zero that i've written in after the 5-4 in the nasty riff should
really be a 2 so that it matches up with the notes played by the guitars
but it's so fast and low pitched that it really doesn't matter too much
if you play 0 or 2 so long as the rhythm is tight.





           ALTERNATE BETWEEN NASTY RIFF 2 AND 3 TIL THE
END


then...
