            American Bad Ass Tab by Kid Rock


I just wrote this because I have never seen anything even close to this for 
the Kid Rock Song.  You may also see Metallica's Sad But True to get additional 
tabs, as they are the same song.

***NOTE*** The intro, main riff and riff 2 are from a song by: Metallica off 
the Black Album called Sad But True. The bridge part where it gets real fast 
I'm not sure of yet, and the lead parts. I have some clues, but I have to get 
ahold of an MP3 to figure the rest out. I've only heard it on the radio.
