    I have recently discovered that this solo is in fact bass and not guitar. The problem is every tab i find doesnt have it down on the bass.

    Does anyone have a tab for it or know where i can get the tab from? :help:
     
  2. that tab doesn't have it either he was refering to the solo after the interlude that everyone thinks is guitar. That tab is also missing the little lead part near the start. I'm almost 100% sure www.mxtabs.net has a tab that has it and if you have powertab www.powertabs.net has one as well

    The powertab is perfect. Every time I really try to do that first pre-bend, though, I snap my G...

  5. What is that^? I have the officially released book for Master Of Puppets and I don't recognize any of that (we are talking about the part towards the end right? Just before the riff comes in that goes F#, A, E, C#). I'm gonna go check the book again to be sure.
     
  6. I think in the book they tab it as guitar but it's supposed to be played one octave higher maybe that's why you don't recognize it plus even though a tab book says it's official doesn't mean it's right because if you read the publishing info and all that it says transcribed by (insert non band member name here) I'm pretty sure the band has nothing to do with the book even though it says "official" on it but I could be wrong.

    Threaddigger :D

    I think I have it pretty close :)

    We decided that we have to play Orion live :eek: (I'm in a Metallica tribute band)
    The isolated tracks from guitar hero helps a bit, but the harmony stuff is pretty hard to figure out...

    Anyway... Guitar pro tab download: Orion solo gp5 tab download

    Mp3 of me trying it on bass download: Orion solo mp3 download

    All official Metallica books are a waste of your money, not accurate at all.
    Compare to the guitar hero isolated tracks and realize you've been duped... :eyebrow:

    Note: in the second bar, the first notes should be a triplet. I can't seem to figure out how to change that in guitarpro :confused:
     
  9. I cheat on that and just go to the 24th lol. When I only had 20th frets I did the same and snapped a G.
