Stuart Clayton: Nothing Else Matters – Solo Bass Arrangement

Stuart Clayton offers his take on Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”, performed as a solo bass arrangement.

Stuart wanted to include the tune in his Solo Arrangements for Electric Bass book, but couldn’t secure the copyright permission in time.

For those who feel up for the challenge, Stuart has posted the sheet music and MP3 on his Bassline Publishing website.

      Yes, Serge. Just go to Stuart Clayton’s website Bassline Publishing and open an account. Then you get the free stuff, which includes the Nothing Else Matters tab. And while you are there, do check out Stuart’s awesome bass books. (I am in no way affiliated to the company, by the way. I am far away in Malaysia).

  15. I’ll just go ahead and burn my guitars while offering an apology to the music gods now. LOL
