    Hey, ur playing is amazing, i really enjoy it. Ive got one question, did u tabbed ur Orion cover? I found it on youtube, u wrote comment that you will tab it but i didnt found it anywhere

    • demand

      Thanks, man! Yes, I`ll do tab, but I have kind of queue of goals. “Orion” supposed to be my 7th “Total Cliff” video, so it will be posted in 3 weeks. If the tabs be done sooner, I`ll send they to your e-mail. Check my uploads and your mailbox \m/

    • demand

      Hey, man! What exactly can’t you get in Orion? I want to do it as accurately as possible.

  • River

    Hey man,I love your bass sound and playing style! I don’t know if you’ve heard of Primus or not, and I know it’s a very different style of playing, but have you ever considered playing any of their stuff too? Also just out of curiosity, do you play any other instruments? Thanks!

    • av

      Hi \m/ Thank you! I do know about Primus, but my slap sucks))) There’s a lot of cool funky guys in Youtube (like Davie or Sviedov). I like metal fingerstyle and distortion sound, so I have some priorities and walk my way. I’m so glad to find people who share it with me! About other instruments: acoustic guitar (pretty good in finger playing), electric guitar (now try to learn picking to play riffs), keys (a little bit). Also I sing. That’s it for this moment, but whole life ahead)

  • Tim Tittjung

    Hey man, I have a question…..

  • zap

    Hi, congratulations for your work and for your technique (I play bass too xD)
    I’m a great fan of Marco Hietala (Nightwish/Tarot) so I ask you if you can make some bass cover of Nightwish songs, it would be great to see you playing Marco’s bass lines ^-^

  • Kevin Jones

    Congrats on the wedding, have a great day and looking forward to all the new stuff.

  • Magnetic

    Your videos and lessons are amazing!
    I would like to ask you how to play like Cliff did it in 0:24. I can’t understand how to do it.

    • av

      Thank you!) Actually I haven’t tried to learn this piece. Kind of left-hand tapping or legato. I’ll make a lesson on this live version of Anesthesia. And meanwhile you could try to learn it by yourself – it’s goo for ears. Cheers \m/

  • Owen


    Really impressed with your dedication, could you check the gpx/gp5 download link for my friend of misery please, i think you’ve placed a download link for pdf x2. Thanks


  • Quorell

    I would like to ask you what chords did you use in your beautiful song called Silent Echo. I’m beginner guitarist and i can’t recognize these chords by ear. Thanks a lot for your hard work on legacy of Cliff and the other awesome stuff. Cheers.

    • av

      Hi) Do you need chords or whole tab for the song? If chords, here they are: Em – C – G – Am6 (intro), Em – C – D – B7 – C – G – A6 (verse), Em – D7 – G – B7 (chorus), Bm – A – D (next riff), Em – A – G (next next riff). It’s hard to outline the song textually… I’ll make tabs for you and send them on your e-mail

  • Birk

    I think I found a mistake in the Hit the lights tab. There’s a ‘Dal Segno al coda’ missing. I think you wanted to write it down because of the ‘Coda’ written down before outro, but you maybe forgot it. Otherwise it would be too short.

  • Presian

    Hey Andriy today I was dream Cliff Burton in day of the green but Cliff was play Whit your bass guitar very strange. And I was in public. This dream was fantastic.

  • Presian

  • Gianluca

    A beginner bass player here! I bought a bass guitar (Harley Benton WB-20BK) just a few days ago and I consider it to be one of the best things that I bought in my life! I’m going to buy some more apparel for it (an amplifier and speakers, a case and a strap), but I’ll most probably do it next month (I’m a university student and have insufficient funds right now).

    I tried my luck with a classical guitar before but I concluded that it’s not an instrument for me (I prefer the sound of a bass guitar over the classical one and its more rhythmical play). I always wanted to learn how to play a guitar but I wasn’t sure about what kind of a guitar I’d like to play. I’m a big fan of rock, metal and instrumental music, and ultimately, it was Metallica’s “To Live is to Die” (which is my all time favorite instrumental ever), Your’s cover of it and the story of Cliff Burton that pushed me to buy a bass.

    I’ve watched most of your Metallica covers, several videos and even read your bass introductory book – all of which gave me a lot of entertainment, knowledge and insight. I have several hobbies already: writing (both prose and lyric – I’m about to release a chapbook with my poetry), video game development (from easy scripting changes, texturing, sound editting and 3d modelling to C++ programming – I’m a one man development studio), travelling (I moved across half of Europe by bus and almost through the entirety of my country), all kinds of creative shenanigangs, learning languages (I’m studying English and Russian Philologies at a University and Swedish in my spare time), and watching the sky by night, but I’m sure that I’ll find time and place for a new passion – the bass guitar.

    It is true that I have a goal in learning how to play a bass guitar. Several, in fact: satisfaction and enjoyment from playing an instrument (I always wanted to be proficient at playing one!), recording soundtracks for my games (which partially extends to the next goal) and playing with my friends and colleagues that play other instruments.

    Anyways, I’m really thankful for all the materials and videos that you have released!

    With Best Regards,

    • Hi Snehk,

      Thanks for the kind words! I am glad that my materials help you in your bass journey. Funny that now I’m interested in learning acoustic and classical guitar more))) It’s all music, just in different collors and shapes. Once I have some spare money, I’ll buy an acoustic bass, which could be some kind of a compromise between my two main instruments.

      Anyway, I hope you’re having a nice day.

      Enjoy playing!
