“The best way to play like us is to play with us,” James Hetfield says in a new clip promoting Metallica's new partnership with online guitar lesson platform Yousician.

The just-launched collaboration – which consists of three guitar-focused video courses on riffs, lead and rhythm – offers Metallica fans a chance to do just that and learn the band's biggest hits – including Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters and One, as well as the “real way” to play Master of Puppets – straight from the thrash legends themselves.
