Metallica - Sad But True Bass guitar tab

Song: Sad But True

Band: Metallica

From what I can see there’s only one bass tab for this song in the world and I don’t

it’s exactly right. I watched tht S&M DVD loads of times (the Metallica one!) and I came up

this. You have to play it on a 5 string bass to get the proper sound but I figured out a

for a 4 string one too.

5 String

I’d say it’s about 95% right, if not 100%, but if you’ve got any comments or

let me hear about them.

Please rate.
