Metallica Guitar Tabs | Learn To Play Their Songs

Learning Metallica songs on your guitar is not just about size or shape of your guitar. It’s to do with the way it feels when you tuck it close to your body, about the way the strings respond to the way you touch them, even the way it smells … Think of it more like a first date!

Learn Guitar the Lazy Way?

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of playing a lead guitar solo? 98% of guitarists would immediately think of some scale or scale pattern; very few would think of using chord shapes.

Here is a very simple yet effective way to create powerful, musical solos...

Step 1: Begin with the basic chord progression of the song you want to solo over.

I'll use a simple three chord progression in the key of G.

G /// | D /// | C /// | C /// |

Step 2: Design a variety of chord shapes on a defined string grid.

String grids are essentially groups of three stings i.e., grid 1 = strings 1, 2 & 3; grid 2 = 2, 3 & 4; grid 3 = 3, 4 & 5 grid 4 = 4, 5 & 6.

Since we are working on lead guitar solos I would recommend using string grid 1.

Step 3: Using voice leading principles create your chord shapes from a predetermined point on the string grid; the best way to make sure you have all your options covered is to begin with the first chord and find as many ways to play this chord on the string grid you have selected.

G
-3--
-3--
-4--
-x--
-x--
-x--

D
-2--
-3--
-2--
-x--
-x--
-x--

How does this help you with your lead solos? Easy you simply pick any of the notes (strings) that are in your chord shapes.

Here is an example:

G chord = you could play

-3------
------3-
---4----
--------
--------
--------
or

G chord = you could play

-3-------
---3-----
------4--
---------
---------
---------
Try playing different string sequences and see how many new sounds you can come up with! Once you find a pattern you like change to the next chord in your chord progression and use the exact same picking sequence, then on to the next chord with the same picking sequence.

You know if that chemistry’s right … and I’ve never yet met another guitar teacher who’ll tell you how to pick the right guitar the way I show you.

Now, I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s not starting in the middle, is it? That’s starting at the start! From there, you’re not just playing tunes … you’re building a relationship with your instrument.

Learn to Play Guitar Tabs - The Easy Way

Learning guitar is a highly rewarding and enjoyable musical
experience. For some people who are overworked during the
day, their guitar lesson is a rare opportunity to relax. But
...let's face it, learning guitar can seem like a daunting task
for most of us.

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of first learning guitar is
that it is seemingly impossible to play anything that actually
sounds good.

The traditional way of learning guitar is by taking private
lessons from a guitar teacher. Alternatively you could try
learning songs by ear and teach yourself by tediously working
your way through slow, thick, boring text books. This is a
frustrating, time consuming way to learn.

Thankfully the invention of the internet has produced a wealth of
information and multimedia resources.

The Guitar

The last few decades has seen a remarkable growth in the
popularity of rock music and guitar playing has become pretty
attractive for many.

Today the guitar is everywhere; a versatile instrument - adapting
itself to almost any kind of situation, and ever ready to unite
with meretricious gadgetry. Victimized by it's own success, it
has become something more than a musical instrument - like the
swastika before it, it has become the symbol of a social
revolution! The ultimate emblem of grooviness! Like John Wayne's
six-gun, Mary Poppin's umbrella or Fred Flintstone's "yabba-
dabba-doo", it is now an object unto itself!

Learning guitar is a duel edged experience giving students the
opportunity to hone their organizational, social interaction
skills. Learning guitar is about going through a series of
stages. Speed develops naturally as a by-product of accuracy.

Unlike the old ways of learning guitar music, online lessons lets
you have all of the fun of learning how to play the guitar,
without any of the old-fashioned frustration.

Online guitar lessons can be useful and convenient, however I
would recommend getting at least some face-to-face tuition, as a
personal teacher can spot (and correct) flaws in your technique
that would otherwise go unchecked.

Again, be aware it's just as frustrating online trying to
learn from eBooks,software, or cheap introductory videos with
little useful content. What you're really looking for is high-
quality, step-by-step video instruction that takes you from
beginner (or intermediate) all the way through advanced
instruction.
