    Contains both standard and TAB notation (see attached PDF). Several of Cliff Burton's isolated bass tracks (including this one) were released by Metallica for their Guitar Hero: Metallica video game and have since been uploaded to YouTube, making my transcription task much easier when it comes to achieving a high degree of accuracy.

    Any bass TAB I've ever seen for this song gets many parts quite wrong, usually because they simply copy the rhythm guitar riffs and assume that's all there is to it. The majority of these bad transcriptions were probably created before the isolated bass tracks were available, but I've never seen one that faithfully represents exactly what Cliff played in the studio. This one does.

    Here's Cliff's isolated track for reference:
