SKU: A0.1434489

By Metallica. By James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. Arranged by Derek Hasted. Pop,Rock. Score and Parts. 21 pages. Derek Hasted #1014651. Published by Derek Hasted (A0.1434489).


For Classical Guitar primarily - also suits Acoustic Guitar or Electric Guitar

Derek Hasted writes "This is an astonishing piece - hypnotically repetitive, yet full of contrasts, big builds and a reflectve ending. And well-known to so, so many people.

My arrangement for 3 guitars is somewhere between intermediate (for Guitars 1 & 3) and advanced intermediate (Guitar 2), and will also suit a large ensemble.

Guitar 1 is the tune, and Guitar 3 provides the countermelodies. Both are 3 pages long, and a bit of sticky tape to the joins will ensure they fit a normal music stand with no page turns.

Guitar 2 (the electric guitar part) is 4 pages, but I have placed open strings and then a bar’s rest at the foot of pages 2 & 3 to allow plenty of time for page turns. On a classical guitar we can’t bend the top string by a semitone, so my arrangement uses slurs to make a very acceptable alternative (and a couple of bars have yet more alternatives in the score).

The full 6 minutes of the original is here, in the same key, using a variety of textures that help to capture the build-up and decay of the original.

I hope you enjoy playing this piece!"

This is one of a large and growing range of accessible ensembles from experienced arranger Derek Hasted, and is supplied as full score and parts. Derek's website at lists all his arrangements by title and by "number of instruments", with links to soundclips and sample score.
