Hi All,

Found the right section to post it in this time smile.gif

Been working on this for afew days since my first upload, i think its improving but i'll let you lot be the judge of that. Still some way to go though.

Feedback always welcome smile.gif


When I look in the mirror I see a face-melting guitar shredder.... maybe my mirror tells the future?

You're playing some parts cleaner, I can see the improvement.

Try to go through each bend in the solo, one at a time, and firstly play the starting note, then play the note you're bending to. Now bend the string up, and hit that same note. Repeat this with all the bends until your bending accuracy improves.

Keep it uuuuuuuup!

Nice playing dude and awesome song pick, luv Nothing Else Matters smile.gif

Tip I can suggest is when going into those bends, needs to be smooth in, like it's getting smooth going out.
Kirk Hammet is just sooooooo smooth, it's crazy. Aim for that feeling, lots of practice! wink.gif

Starting on a bend upwards might help.

Make sure your scooping your mids, turn up bass and treble on your amp's EQ, turn gain up high, and just a tad of reverb, for that metallica sound. If you have effects add in Chorus and Delay.

Just like others wrote, bends up the string should help! This is true especially when you hit two string with the pick, like the first bend.
As far as I remember the A note you play on the 3rd string (@ ~ 0:06) is not on the original solo. Many internet tabs write this but there isn't, if I'm right.
Check also your tuning on that fretboard area, some notes are slightly out of tune.
