Nothing screams happy valentine’s more than Metallica.
This is at the limits of my abilities.
!Warning! Horrible clipping, using headphone output because it’s the middle of the night…
Laptop mic headroom <> amp headroom
I’ll try and mic the amp next time.
One more to go then I’ll be posting progress of beginner modules. Back at level two, should have stuck around the first time, in the F chord lesson, Justin describes exactly the sticking out index finger you can see in the video and predicted the issues it causes - see A-string bar chord walk down cheats….
Given your own self criticism I think you played it very well, if I were to nitpick I think you should look at your dynamics, there were bits where the loudness was either higher or lower than ideal; that said at your level it was very good.
Going back and covering your weaknesses is a great idea, I often do that myself - after playing for nearly 60 years and given my age it’s so easy to forget things
I practiced the beginning of this song on an acoustic last summer, and somewhere my fingers didn’t do what I wanted them to do (I still need a lot of practice ). So I stopped the practice of that song, hoping one day I would be able to continue.
Today I watched you playing this, and I think it went smooth and easy (that’s what it seemed to me), the tones were flowing quite nice. It’s an inspiration to see you, so I definitely will take up that song again… . Thanks for posting
I’m no expert on Metallica but that sounded damn good to me. Just out of Interest I couldn’t see if you were using a pick or playing finger style?
I tend to favour fingers for most of my playing but I’ve just started using a pick for some blues lead and rythm stuff.
Almost feels like starting again.
Well done on this rendition.
