Metallica tabs

Live Shit guitar tab

From: Travis Grady 
Subject: Live Shit from Metallica

Hey guys, here are somes things I've tabbed that come from the Live
Shit: Binge and Purge CD's and videos.  I've also used some things from
the Year And a Half videos.  These are all riffs and rhythms that have
been played live so I don't think have been recorded anywhere else but
on these CD's.  I hope y'all enjoy!

Live Shit

Tabbed by Travis Grady  (trgrady@vt.edu)

Here are some riffs that Kirk and Jaymz play on the Live Shit CD's and videos and the Year And A Half In The Life Of Metallica videos.  I've tried to tab em out the best I could so they may not be exactly right.

Tab symbols used:

\  - slide
pm - palm mute
b  - bend
r  - release
  )\
b/   \ - gradual bend and release
p  - pull off
~  - tremelo
h  - hammer on
Harm  - harmonics
x  - fret hand mutting
tr~ - trill


This is the "Walk This Way" riff on the video.  Kirk plays this when James and Lars are battling each other on the drum kits.  James plays the opening to the song on the drums and Kirk kicks it in.

This next riff is from Part I of the Year And A Half videos.  Kirk is just sitting around playing "The Wind Cries Mary"  by Jimi Hendrix.

This is also from Part I.  Jaymz plays the first few measures to "Stairway to Heaven."

Here are some more Live Shit riffs.  These riffs are from the Mexico City CD's.  Jason is finishing up his bass solo with Zepplin's "Dazed and Confused"  and some other song.  Kirk joins in before starting his solo.  I've went ahead and tabbed some of Jason's stuff so you can get the feel of the timing and rhythm.

"a la Dazed and Confused"

This is Jason's bass line. (4x)

This was taken from the Guitar Doodle part on the Mexico City CD's.  Kirk is just making a lot of racket on his guitar and then jumps into "Third Stone From The Sun."

This next section is from Jason's bass solo on the Seattle video.  I think it is from "To Live Is To Die."  Jason is playing a little rhythm on his bass and Jaymz joins in and then Kirk.  All guitars are clean.

Riff A
Solo

Here's the beginning of the solo.  It's not exactly the same as on the CD but sounds a lot like it.  I know the beginning is different because it Kirk uses wah and the 15p14p13 aren't on the CD.

     *tremelo pick this note fast as hell and gradually
      bend up a step
   (w/wah)

This fill is played during the 2nd verse and after the solo.

Lyrics:

Yeah, I feel you too
Feel, those things you do
In your eyes I see a fire that burns just free to you
That's running through
Deep inside you know, seeds I plant will grow

	One day we'll see
	The dance come down to me
	Yeah come on come on now take the chance
	That's right	
	Let's dance

Snake, I am the snake
Tempting, that bite you take
Let me make your mind, leave yourself behind
Be not afraid
I've got what ya need, hunger I will feed

	One day we'll see
	The dance come down to me
	Yeah come on come on now take the chance
	Haha!	
	Let's dance

Yeah, come dancin'
(solo)

	One day we'll see
	The dance come down to me
	Yeah come on come on now take the chance
	

Yeah, I feel you too
Feel, those things you do
In your eyes I see a fire that burns just free to you
That's running through
Deep inside you know, seeds I plant will grow

	One day we'll see
	The dance come down to me
	Yeah come on come on now take the chance
	That's right
	Let's dance

It's nice to see you here
Haha!
