    This book was a great inspiration to me! It taught me how to play the licks and the different styles of music that Kirk can play. I really enjoyed being able to finally play that solo in one!!

    I play guitar and Metallica is my favorite band - espicially Kirks solos!! To those who get bent at the thought that Kirk is overrated listen to Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, or John Petrucci - and many others. Now having said that, many guitarists are fast, but Kirk has managed...

    to bring almost every song (I haven't listend to them post black album) alive perfectly with the solo, blending speed and accuracy with harmonies and melodic themes - this is something easier said than done, many guitarists are as fast, but how many can match a solo to the rhythms of Hetfield, Kirk is the only Master in that world!!!! Kirks playing is, no matter how you cut that slice of pie, expert level.

    I play Guitar and Drums and my favorite guitarist in the whole world is Kirk Hammett. He is so good. He learnt from Joe Satriani and as you learn from the best, you become the best. Kirk rocks with solos like "Fade to Black", "Master of Puppets", etc.
