Guitar tabs with lyrics

Title: Fade To Black
Album: Ride The Lightning

Tabbed by: Bernd Egl (bernd.egl@freenet.de)

Arrangement for single acoustic guitar.

Tune your guitar down 1/2 step for playing to the record.

I recommend playing to the record in the beginning to get
the right timing and feeling for the song.
Tuning: (Eb;Ab;Db;Gb;Bb;eb)

h = hammer on
p = pull off
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
~ = hold note
x = string is not played

Tip: Don't cramp yourself at the beginning. It's not as difficult as it
     might seem. When you've found out the flow it'll sound very cool.

In the acoustic version (Atlanta/Acoustica) Kirk ends the intro on:

B-------------------------|
G---------0---------------|
D------4-----4------------|
A---2-----------2--5--4---|  and starts again at the top.

Note: The -Em- chord at the end of the interlude is only played
      the first time. The second time, the interlude ends on:

Note: The solo might not be 100% correct. Send your hatemail to Philly!
BTW:  In the acoustic version Kirk plays every note in the solo about 3
times
      in a very fast way, sounds good. I think he uses a very soft pick.

Note: I know that there's a lot missing in this tab, but it should be an
      average help for beginners and hey... it works to the record so that
      you can improvise the rest.

      An by the way...

      There might be something missing, there might be something wrong...

      BUT

      this is the way a tab should look like!!
