    This book was cool and fun, but it didnt have the whole song. Its fun to learn the beginning Riffs, but it needs the whole song, i havent found any mistakes yet either.

  • 2005-09-19 00:00:00.0 Could be better.

    The book is pretty good. But it could use some work for it's price. The book contains all of the songs off of all of their good albums. But only shows little bits and peices from them. It could definatly get updated and show more parts of the songs...

    This book doesn't have all important riffs in it. It covers all the songs in the first 5 metallica albums but only briefly. This book is good to get an idea of the technique which metallica uses in their various songs. It is not good if you're planning...

    to learn metallica songs. I can easily get tabs from the internet for free that tell me what this book has told me.

  • 2001-08-21 00:00:00.0 I think this was a great book!!!

    It had all the songs from Kill'em All to The Black Album. It also had all the riffs, solos, with pics of Metallica, and a time line at the front of the book, and much more. Over all it was a GREAT BOOK!!
