GibsonGuitar.in has posted a new interview with Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett about Metallica's upcoming show in India. During the interview, Hammett discussed the possibility of new material from Metallica in the near future.
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.
“I was still using my black Flying V on Ride the Lightning, but ‘Fade to Black’ sounds different—it has a warmer sound—because I used the neck pickup and played through a wah-wah pedal all the way in the ‘up’ position,” says Kirk Hammett.
