for a note – I’m going to remake this review and tabs, bass tuning f*cked up (down 1 step actually=)
We have reached 4th review of Cliff Burton’s legacy. Now it’s one of the darkest songs of Metallica – “The Thing That Should Not be” – bass analysis with bass tab (you can find gpt+pdf in the end of article).
Here we go! You are reading my very first article of “TOTAL CLIFF” series – complete review of legacy of original Metallica bass player Cliff Burton – bass genius, who`s gone too early, but leave so big mark. I feel a need to share my experience with you, that Cliff never had a chance to do.
I start with “No Remorse” from “Kill’ Em All” album. You may count it as bass lesson, bass cover with tabs, or whatever. So, bass line of Cliff Burton from “No Remorse”, Metallica – let’s go!
Hey, friends! “Guitar solos on bass” renews, actually by request, bass tab done either. This is my bass solo variation of “Floods” outro by Pantera. “Floods” outro is an awesome piece of music, another amazing work by Dimebag Darrell, R.I.P. I’ve modified it for 4-string bass guitar with some changed moments, but initial idea is kept. This Pantera bass tab placed below>

This is one of the best Pantera` songs, stands in a line with other greatest hits of Pantera: “Cowboys From Hell”, “Mouth For War”, “Cemetery Gates”, “Walk”, “This Love” etc. This song was released in 1996 on “Great Southern Trendkill” album.

So, here’s my selection of E-moll bass chords. Chart includes ultimate amount of E minor chords variations, possible to play on 22-bar 4 string bass guitar. Chords chart I made is going to be starter for a big series of articles and videos about learning bass guitar. Here you can find 21 views of Em bass guitar chords on the kind of instrument. I also depicted some alternative ways to play they with and without barre, watch its bass tab below.
Why do I start a bass guitar chords topic with exactly Em? First of all, this is the most using bass scale in rock music. For example, more than half of songs by the band Metallica (and Metallica bass lines either) built around E minor. Prevailing of the scale causes demand in learning it. Thus we begin to learn bass chords by Em ones.

On the picture of bass chord chart you can see vertical bass tabs with: 4 strings, current bars (marked lower bar), involved notes, used fingers (1 – index, 2 – middle, 3 – ring, 4 – little finger, no number – barre). This chart doesn’t comprise any inversions and complicated variations, but built on classic harmony triad bass chords (for beginners mainly). Also I consciously missed bass power chords: I gonna make separate article (and later video) about it.
Next step is A-moll (A minor) bass guitar chord chart. Read more about bass theory and practice in my next publications. Don’t miss the information and share it with your friends on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
