Eat My Uke

Metallica – Ride The Lightning

The absolute titans of metal music. I have been a fan of this band since I was a teenager. When you are an amateur guitar player like I was, it’s almost impossible not to like this band. The musicianship is incredible.

Today we are leaning to play Fight Fire With Fire, For Whom The Bell Tolls and Fade To Black. Below is my arrangement of the album which these ukulele tabs are taken from.

This isn’t the first Metallica album i have arranged on the ukulele. Me and a buddy gave Master Of Puppets a go too.

Are you interested to know what kind of ukuleles i use to make all my videos?

Metallica Ukulele Tabs

Are you new to ukulele tabs? This guide will help you understand what all these numbers mean.

Fight Fire With Fire

Originally played on an acoustic guitar, this sounds fantastic on a ukulele too. Im using a low G on the video but it will still work with a high G too.

For Whom The Bell Tolls

This is just the intro to the song and i have crammed it all in to make it shorter. These are the four main riffs you will hear throughout the song.

Fade To Black

This is the intro and the part of the opening solo. The solo is no doubt a finger twister and took me a good few hours to build up the speed. Just start slow and best of luck ha!
