My tune "Breaking Point" was used by Ken Burns in his recent "The Tenth Inning" baseball documentary. It’s cool when an original guitar composition gets licensed for a film project. It’s way cooler, however, when I’m asked to compose for a specific project.
In this Quick Lick, Guitar World's Matt Scharfglass shows you how to play the acoustic intro to Metallica's "Battery," from the landmark album Master of Puppets. In the intro to the song, James Hetfield plays a melody while accompanying himself with chords underneath that gives the song it's haunting vibe.
