Metallica bass tabs for Anethesia

Bass tabs with lyrics

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
|-----|

This one was quite difficult to get into ascii format, I hope you all
understand it.

play with Wah and distortion
