I’m playing along to the middle section of “Metallica – Master of Puppets”, including the solos. At the time I recorded this video, I didn’t have the tremolo bar for the Floyd Rose system, so I used pinch harmonics and bends for the squealie part of the solo. (I have since acquired a new tremolo bar.) I have received many comments about the first part of the interlude being played “too high”. People making such comments don’t realize that this part is a dual guitar harmony. James and Kirk each play a separate melody (one high and one low) to produce a very nice harmony. On the studio album, the high part of the harmony is much lower in the mix, hence the reason it sounds a bit strange when I play it in this video. However, if you listen to any live version of the song you will clearly hear this. If you still don’t believe me, I have cut out a small audio clip of their performance with the SF orchestra and isolated Kirk’s harmony part. Check out the link and hear it for yourself: www.box.net (Note: They have tuned down for this performance–it’s not in E standard) Audio was directly recorded to my computer using output from a Line 6 POD. Guitar is an ESP KH-2. Enjoy! For information on my playing, gear, recording method, and some of the tabs I’ve written for my videos, please visit my website: www.killrbuckeye.com
