    Hey, I was wondering if anyone could tab out "For Whom The Bell Tolls" by MetallicA, with all of the fills Jason Newstead does live. Thanks!

    I guess I've never heard the live version. Recorded version's really easy (and cool). :bassist:
     
  3. Well..everytime I've seen Jason do it, it's different. Anyway, here's how it is on the recording:

    Code:
    G-19-18-17-16~--19p16-------19----------
    D---------------------17-16-------------
    A------------------------------17-16~--
    
    On Cliff 'Em All it goes like this:

    Code:
    G-19-18-17-16~-19p16-------19----------
    D-------------------17-16-------------
    A-------------------------------17-16~\-----
    E----------------------------------------0
    
    G-19-18-17-16~--------16h19p16----16h19p16----16h19p16----16h19p16----16h19p16
    D--------------17-17-----------17---------17-----------17----------17---------17
    A------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    E--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    
    G-19-18-17-16~-19p16-------19----------
    D---------------------17-16-------------
    A-----------------------------17-16~-----
    E-------------------------------------17/--0
    
    G-19-18-17-16~-19p16-------19(full)~19(full, release)----------
    D--------------------17-16-------------
    A-------------------------------------
    E------------------------------------
    
    Then the song begins, and Cliff does a few more variations, but the camera isn't on him so I dunno what he's doing exactly. Shouldn't be too hard to figure out, it's all in the 16th position for the most part.

    This is just my own personal philosophy, but live fills are a bassists signature on that version of the song, what makes that performance different than the last. So to completely play Newsteads fills note for note would be weak. Wanna throw in some fills, fine, but don't rip off someone elses.
