    You got the third chord wrong bro, sorry, seen Kirk and James explain the intro many times. It even sounds off. You are only off on 2 notes however. I don;t have my guitar with me right now, and won't for a few weeks. If I can remember I'll grab it and show ya. The rest is spot on.

  3. Damn Marty soon you can play Santa Claus, lol.
    Great demo my friend sounds very good!!
    Greetings and a nice and happy 2020!

  4. Middle or neck pickup. Needs to be darker.

  5. This song is about a man that wants to commit suicide, and eventually does it.

    The depressive lyrics regarding someone with suicidal desires were inspired by James Hetfield’s first Marshall amplifier, which his mother helped him get before she died, being stolen just before the album was recorded.

  8. Hey Marty I’ve loved the lesson up to the lick with the rapid b and e alterations on the 15 and 16th fret I’ve had trouble getting down the speed. Do you have any tips on getting that part up to speed? Other than that the lesson was amazing!
