  • January 13, 2007 Call of Ktulu

    The Call of Kutulu has some sweet solo licks in it.It shows Cliff's techniques and unique style.However this book takes some practice though.Most of the songs are very fast.Fade To Black is a fairly easy song.Just memorize a stanza and play it over and...

    over and slowly increase your speed until you can play it as fast as on the cd.It takes practice but it feels so good when you finally master an entire song.The fastest song in my opinion is Fight Fire With Fire.

  • March 21, 2006 You Gotta Love It!

    Ride The Lightning is definitely one of Metallica's best albums. This book is very accurate on every song. "The Call of Ktulu", and "For Whom The Bell Tolls", are a great example of Cliff Burton's creativity. Some of the wah instructions are inaccurate during "The Call of Ktulu...

    ", but it's kind of hard to tell what Cliff is doing on some parts anyway.... I would difinitely say, buy this book!

  • December 06, 2005 Good book

    I think this book kicks ass. It is really accurate. Some of the harder songs are fight fire with fire (because its fast), and the call of ktulu. The Call... has some pretty hard bass wah... The easiest song is either fade to black or for whome the bell tolls...

    , even creeping death. Escape is also a really fun song to play.
