In My Darkest Hour by Megadeth

In My Darkest Hour bass tab by Megadeth

Bass tabs with lyrics

SONG: IN MY DARKEST HOUR
BAND: MEGADETH
ALBUM: SO FAR, SO GOOD...SO WHAT?

TABBED BY: GARETH RICHARDS
EMAIL:   [email protected]
this has all the hallmarks of a clasic megadeth song; it's complex,
deeply
melodic, has strong lyrics and is a fun one to play. i've seen a version
of
this online somewhere but it had quite a few errors and the lack of bar
lines and rhythmic information (like so many tabs online) made it
difficult
to follow.
