    Metallica's albums with Cliff: Kill Em' All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets. Listen to them, buy them and cherish them.
  3. problem is, you can only get so much of him. it sounds like you are looking for more songs that he uses lots of distortion and his lead bass technique, and your out of luck.. the only other song i can think of that you didn't list is "for whom the bell tolls". you've got plenty of other songs that he doesn't uses those techniques that have great basslines...your best off doing what gearhead here says ^^^

    Cliff actually wrote a good portion of the songs that were on And Justice For All. Of course he wasn't around to play on the album.

  6. I can only imagine how the Metal genre would have evolved in general given Cliff was still alive today. Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth) is a fairly difficult bass solo.
    Congrats for learning it Ef4! I would love to hear a sound sample if you have one.
  7. The Cliff 'em All video is also a good buy if you can find it. Lots of solo bass stuff on there thats not on the albums.

    The Four Horsemen is a great bass piece.
    Am I Evil isn't too hard, but has an awesome vibe to it, same for Creeping Death and Phantom Lord

    pick up the book 'to live is to die' great book that discussed each of the albums Cliff was on and provides more insight into his impact to the songs, metallica and the metal industry
  11. Cliff Burton is one hell of a player. He is great. Orion makes my jaw drop every time I hear it. :eek:
