I really wanted to do this when everyone else was doing it wayyy back in january, but life sorta got in the way: MY grandpa died, my cat of 15 years died, and I got engaged in march. SO a lot has been going on. Plus the song wasnt where I wanted it to be. But this song taught me a lot: My picking hand sucked bad before this song. I wasnt picking hard enough and my picking hand was weak in general. I pick a lot harder now and I even switched picks over to a .60 from the petrucci jazz IIIs I had been using. Also Metallica hasnt really written anything this cool in a long while. While I love load and reload, this is on another level.
Also if you hate the way my face looks, then skip to around 2:00. My face gets a lot better around there. I know my cover isnt perfect persay and that I did mess up, but Its just one take with one guitar track. This was actually my 2nd take that I did that day. Also I didnt learn the solo. I was just focusing on my picking hand for this song.
Next up is to learn holy wars.
