Metallica is known as a band that makes long songs, and sometimes too much. More riffs, more variations of the riffs, more sections and composition twists. Of course, there’re some exceptions (like Motorbreath). But the tendency to overdo songs (in terms of duration, sound, overall saturation) is a thing for which we might either love of hate Metallica. So, here’s my top 4 Metallica songs (imho) overdone one way or another.
‘Asturias’ is a classic of Spanish guitar music, initially written by Isaac Albeniz for piano, on Andres Segovia made the most known guitar arrangement of it. And recently I’ve attempted to play it on bass in metal solo style (check out the video too). Today I’ll show you how to learn it with tabs.

Hi guys. Today we’ll try to learn what habits made Cliff Burton the musician we know and love: a master of finger-style, expressive improviser and songwriting engine of Metallica.
Another bass solo by Robert Trujillo that I tabbed for you. It’s from live debut of Orion, Metallica on Rock Am Ring 2006. It simple and different from all the Metallica bass solos. Enjoy tabs and playing \m/
The legendary Cliff Burton’s bass solo from Day On the Green 1985. It’s so fast and unpredictable. One of the most difficult bass tabs I ever did.
This is my favorite Robert Trujillo bass solo. I was astonished when watched it for the first time back to 2009. I didn’t play bass then, even didn’t plan. But that had planted a seed of what I am now. Robert was my first bass teacher.
