    I share with you my last video of For Whom the Bell Tolls, which includes the cover of the solo Cliff played live:

    The essential Metal Basslines to Learn is a series that tries to show the world some of the songs where bass guitar has an important role. It pretends to be a collection of good basslines that any person might consider to learn. In this episode, I've also covered the live bass solo by Cliff Burton (live at the Green, 31th August, 1985) Comment if there's any song whose bassline you consider essential.

    For Whom the Bell Tolls is a Metallica's song that was part of the Ride the Lightning album (released on 27th July 1984). It was inspired by the equally titled Ernerst's Hemingway novel. The book, like the song, is about the spanish civil war. The war happened between 18th of July 1936 and 1st of April 1939. It was a huge conflict where the spanish republic fought against the national rebels. The great problem was that the country was really divided in two ideological factions, and the population fought against their friends or even family members. Both factions commited great crimes to the history of mankind. International forces took part, like the nazis, the fascist italians or the international brigades. It was like a test for the coming Second World War. The national faction won, but caused the ruin of the country and its population. I will continue uploading this kind of videos, so keep in tune.
