Is it just me or Kirk and James are not on the same tuning in this video??? sad.gif

Sad, since this is one of my favorite songs of all time...

I don't want to deceive metallica in any way. It's one of my favorite bands. I just wanted to have an unbiased specialist view (totally contrary to youtube comments tongue.gif ) to see if I am going crazy...

Hmm yes I'd be interested in hearing what people think as well - to me it sounds like it could a badly intonated guitar which would need a different vibrato to compensate.

I'm gonna go with poorly intonated guitar + a few outside notes that weren't really great choices. I only listened to the first ~90 seconds.

I think we can assume that with a massively experienced band such as them, knowing this is a media performance, all is intentional. These are musicians who do things that some might think break the rules, but to them, it is just artistic license. I like it.

Man, that van halen show is like a train wreck. I can't look away. I keep hoping it'll get better and yet it only gets worse.

to be honest - I think this is one of these "dubbed" Videos where some clown plays over the original soundtrack! happy.gif

Just listened to the Van Halen Vid - I´m SURE that it´s a fake! Intonation is one thing - but why shoud Eddie forget how to play the guitar!! wacko.gif blink.gif wacko.gif

I dunno man, those are actually pretty funny. This feels more like the actual guys just having a bad tuning day.

Yeah the Kirk's guitar was probably poorly intonated, teh higher frets are really dissonant.

Jump performance was due to badly adjusted keyboard sample rate I believe, I remember reading it somewhere couple of years ago..

Hmmm, I didn't think about intonation. Thanks for the replies guys. This is something to watch for.

OMG!!!

I am not sure I would be able to keep playing if that happens.

It's so annoying that I would get disoriented tongue.gif
