"Don't sell other shredders that short. Hammett sucks."
And I must be the immature one that insults people's tastes. Hmm.

There's a sort of brutal honesty to that phrase though. Technically hammett doesn't hold a torch to the likes of some of the more precise shredders, and melodically his solos are very inconsistant.

James has razorsharp control over the guitar even as he is singing - that is so hard to do, especially when you are playing a different rhythm than you are singing. Kirk is good, but a bit bland for my tastes. Of course, neither can hold a candle to Steve \m/ 8) \m/

Damn right it's hard to do. I was in a Metallica cover band for a while, and I had the job of the rhythm guitar and the vocals.

But hey, I learned to play and sing within the first year or so of playing, which was good for me.

I think everyone should go through a "Metallica" phase for that reason alone. :D

i don think any of you have ever heard garage days, because if you had you would notice that they ae just about the same at solo'ing and rythem, but james does more rythem now because its harder to pull a fat solo and still sing anything, i tried and i sucked.
learn your tallica' history kiddies!

go listen to garage days, and you guys will notice that they can play about the same, but james is better on lead now, and kirk went the way of the rythem
