I have just signed up on this website and this is my first post. Ok so ive been playing guitar for about 2 years, but just picking it up every so often. Im starting to get serious now and i suppose it sounds sad but im inspired by James Hetfield, I would love to play just like him. I know theres people out there who are saying well hes not that talanted, but its just his attitude and style that i like, and the speed at which he can play. Anyways are there any lessons on here that would help me in achieveing my goal. At this moment in time im more interested in rythem not so much lead, as i leave that for people who can play. lol.

Cheers

Maybe the ''No Upstrokes Allowed'' Lesson, it's a heavy metal rythm lesson

Hey Nody!

There is a Heavy Metal For Beginners series by me, and i think you will find something interesting for you there! Use the search function on our main page and type in RIFFING and you'll see plenty of riffing lessons! smile.gif

It's not bad to be inspired by Hetfield, but be sure that you will outgrow him and become better than he is smile.gif

Enjoy riffing m8!

Ok thanks for that. Just one other question. How do i get that galloping sound that Hetfield does so well. Is there any lessons on that?

hey, Hetfield is one of my idols (mainly cos im metallica mad and i like singing and playing at the same time)

anyways, ive found that to be able to play the rythm to battery and things of that speed you need to alternate pick alot while keeping the sound of downstrokes (i find them a little heavier)

the way i do this is to slightly palm mute the strings your playing (just a tiny bit) and alternate pick in time... try holding the pick inbetween your thumb and your index AND middle finger, makes the pick that little more stable and easier to pick fast.







hope that helps a little bit.

a great way to learn to use palm muting like that is to practice the rythm to One... its a great song and really fun to play on rythm and lead.

its just the timing that you hit the string. it'll come with practice. as said before by pavel, try the heavy metal for beginners lessons, theyll help alot.

try playing with some iron maiden songs for a galloping rythm as alot of their songs use that type of rythm.
