Video Lesson: Metallica's "The Unforgiven"
Guitar World's Matt Scharfglass shows you the Black Album classic
Metallica have been introducing their live shows with "The Ecstasy of Gold", the main theme from the movie The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, for years now, so it was no surprise when the band elected to cover the song for a tribute album to film composer Ennio Morricone back in 2007.
Morricone defined the sound of the "Spaghetti western," including the Spanish-flavored guitar lines that would later influence Metallica in the composition of songs like "The Unforgiven."
In this video lesson, Guitar World's Matt Scharfglass shows you everything you need to know to play the Black Album classic.
