Snow Hey Oh - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Getting it down isn't too hard, its the speed that kills me..
Comfortably Numb outro Solo.
This time next year I might be able to 1/2 azzed play it.
my own stuff requires practice.
not much time for other stuff.
Now 'Summer of 69'. Tomorrow maybe something different.
For better or not..
Just trying to be better at phrasing ME..
And that's difficult enough..
" the sunken lands " from Rosanne Cash latest album
sort of a delay'd rockabilly country thing. nice song
Frampton's lead in "Hallelujah" from "Humble Pie Performance Rockin' The Fillmore The Complete Recordings", the first show of the second night; May 29, 1971, 1:29 - 1:54.
working on my half step whole step diminished lines.
The intro to ZZ Top's Brown Sugar...
I believe In A thing Called love - The Darkness: such a fun song to play!
Paranoid solo- Black Sabbath
Steely Dan's - Brooklyn (owes the charmer under me)
Jeff Baxter's guitar part, end to end, note for note. He also does the pedal steel part, but I ain't goin anywhere near that! This has taken a month to get 2/3 of the way done.
Pretty good endurance exercise in addition to being a great song.
Playing the Hetfield part, of course, can't do the widdly-widdly
So let it be down-picked
So let it be done
To kill your entire right arm
I'm creeping death
Wait till you start doing Disposable Heros. Your right forearm will be throbbing. Then when you start getting tired it's time for DOUBLE TIME. (soldier boy, made of clay! etc.)
the verse riff in Creeping Death is punishing though. Have fun! All Down-Pick! ..actually the entire song is down-pick, there's no up-pick in that one.
James Hetfield is a MACHINE!
One step at a time Hetfield is a downpick robot
I'm actually kinda happy with my progress, been playing for 4 years now. At the beginning, I never though I'd be able to play stuff like this, now I have gotten to the point where I can actually play frikking 'tallica ! Uh ye-heah !
I got Seek and Destroy to like 80-90% (the fast rhythm part during the solo is still tricky sometimes), that is amazing to me. And its really great fun to play those riffs I grew up with
Whiplash and Metal Militia are great practice for the fast/thrash/trem picking stuff.
also the chorus to Fight Fire With Fire, and the verse to Trapped Under Ice.
One of the coolest things about a lot of early Metallica songs is once you learn particular songs, you've learned an invaluable technique that can be applied to lots of other things.
Any one of my students that specifically says, "I want to learn Metal." I have them learn the first 4 Metallica albums. Because you'll learn hundreds of techniques from Palm Muting and Thrash Picking. To blues bending, vibrato, pentatonic scales, arpeggios, classical style guitar (bridge to Master and bridge to To Live is To Die).
Those 4 albums are a treasure trove of techniques.
and what's more fun to learn. Mel Bay Teaches Guitar Example #4? Or the freaking verse riff to Trapped Under Ice? ...it's a no brainer. Learning Metallica is the funnest way to learn to play rock/metal guitar.
Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop
acdc, riff raff
brushing up on Black Mountain Side the Zep version today, totally forgot how to play it.
Today it's Midnight Rambler.....Cool and simple....just cool as hell...
It going to lead to another stones song ....I know it
