With this Fade To Black guitar lesson series we are gonna tackle one of my favorite Metallica songs in it’s entirety.

Fade To Black has lots of interesting guitar parts to dig our teeth into including arpeggiated picking, fast palm muted rhythms, single note triplet sequences and fast repetitive legato licks and more!

In this Fade To Black guitar lesson series of videos I will take you through all of those cool guitar parts throughout 4 video lessons.

Take your time with some of the solo sections. For any fast guitar line you can usually isolate it and create a little repetitive exercise out of it that will help your hands get it down faster. In fact, that is pretty much what you should do with any technical hurdle that you may come across on the guitar.

Fade To Black is an absolute classic by Metallica off of their incredible Ride The Lightning album. I listened to this album almost constantly when I was a teen and this track always held a special place with me. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Good Luck! Carl..

  1. This might sound like a stupid question but i'm a beginner with limited knowledge . Can this part be played on an acoustic/classic guitar ?

  2. How do I tune to this?

  3. Where is your guitar lesson for hotel California? I cannot find it.

  4. Jadon's Rocken Channel

    Do you think that you could teach The Day That Never Comes. That would be a cool song to learn.

  5. MattTheDestroyer 1234

  9. ChuckWeatherman _

    Same outfit each lesson I don't understand haha

  10. I might sound too obvious here, but I will always think those kind of videos are far more useful than any tab… maybe it's just me, but sometimes I find really difficult to read on tabs even the easiest things to play (chords and powerchords are a hell of a mess to figure out…). Thanks for this lesson, these powerchords look pretty easy…

  11. thank you sexy handsome guitar teacher

  15. Charismatic Batman

  16. Keep it up! As a 14 year old, assuming im grade 5-6 (Didn't take examinations but can play multiple grade 6 songs) When do you think I can reach Grade 8? Is it 1 grade per year average? Thanks in advance 😀
