Am I Evil by Metallica

Bass tabs

Newsgroups: rec.music.makers.bass
Subject : BTAB: Metallica - Kill 'em all


The people who transcribed it :

Jeff Jacobson - Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth
Andy Aledort - Jump in the Fire
Steve Gorenberg - the rest

The only thing I've done is converting them to ascii.

I've put all note lengths below the measures, they are :
w - whole note
h - half note
q - quarter note
e - eigth note
s - sixteenth note
t - thirty-second note
l - long note ('fermate' sign)
x+y - play note with length x+y

/ - a couple of these mean you have to fill the length with
  1. eight notes     (1 slash)  or
  2. sixteenth notes   (2 slashes) or
  3. thirty-second notes (3 slashes)

R - in the tab denotes a rest.
x - an undefined or muted note.
[ 3 ] - a triplet

/ - slide up
/(X) - slide up to fret X, but don't pick X
\ - slide down
\(X) - slide down to fret X, but don't pick X
T - tap note
Harm - harmonic
A.H. - Artificial harmonic

inside bar :
p - pull off
h - hammer on
bx - bend string x notes up
bx r - bend string x notes up and release string

a note without a length indication, means a 'ghost' note (The little notes
that occur in sheet music sometimes).

cresc. - crescendo (Play louder and louder, 'fade in')

||-- --||
||-o o-|| - a repeat
||-o o-||
||-- --||

| X |
|-----| - X bar rest
|-----|
|   |

|-----|
| % | - repeat previous bar

Lyrics :
 1. My mother was a witch, she was burned alive
  Thankless little bitch for the tears I cried
  Take her down now, don't want to see her face
  All blistered and burnt, can't hide my disgrace

 Pre-chorus :
  Twenty-seven, ev'ry one was nice
  Gotta see 'em, make 'em pay their price
  See their bodies out on the ice
  Take my time

 Chorus :
  Am I evil ?
  Yes, I am
  Am I evil ?
  I am man, Yes, I am

 2. As I watched my mother die, I lost my head
  Revenge now I sought to break with my bread
  Takin' no chances, you come with me
  I'll split you to the bone, help set you free

 Pre-chorus

 Chorus

 Bridge :
 3. On with the action now, I'll strip your pride
  I'll spread your blood around, I'll see you ride
  Your face is scarred with steel, wounds deep and neat
  Like a double dozen before ya, smells so sweet

 Chorus II :
  Am I evil ?
  Yes, I am
  Am I evil ?
  I am man

 4. I'll take my residence, I'll watch your fire
  You can come with me, sweet desire
  My face is long forgot, my face not my own
  Sweet and timely whore, take me home

 Chorus II

 5. My soul is longing for, await my heir
  Sent to avenge my mother, sleep myself
  My face is long forgot, my face not my own
  Sweet and timely whore, take me home

 Chorus II

  Am I evil ?
  Yes, I fuckin' am
  Am I evil ?
  I am man
