Megadeth bass tabs for In my darkest hour

Bass tabs with lyrics

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

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