I found someone playing Black Magic with better chops that Beach.

That guy fucking shreds.
It's a good version... but the guy likes to do Black Metal pinch harmonics... and nice legato sounding tapping is always preferable to percussive sounding sweet picking to my ears.

Is he using one of those custom Dean Michael Schenker V's in the first one? I always thought those were nice guitars! I came close to getting one. :(

Yeah, that guy's good!

I always thought he sucks. Bad tone, thin sound, covers everything with his everlating fucking wah wah. Always the same licks. Bad player who was on the right place on the right time. He fits in the band, but they could have had someone with better skills and sounds, someone who would grow over the years.

Metallica were my fave band for like 2 years bar none but looking back now...Kirk IS a pretty terrible player. His vibrato is bad and his fast scale stuff like Blackened and Seek And Destroy are just random notes...

Full name:

Kirk Lee Hammett :roll:

I personally like Metallica’s early stuff, but I did notice the Seek and Destroy solo was a bit ‘’Random’’, but that’s early metal days for ya! :P

...untill Yngwie came along, all in key & clean as fuck!!! :twisted:

If Mitch liked the way Krk played, I could understand him getting defensive.

It's just Kirk, Mitch. No big deal.

Watch, it's easy: "Brittanny Speerz" :wink:

It's annoyed me since I first listened to them like 7 years ago! Everytime I see Hammet I twitch a little bit LOL! :lol:

Eli, I'm gonna get you later...

How come that kind of footage gets on youtube though?...
I totally agree Kirk looks really bad on that one. It's painful for me to admit that the guy who has done what I think are cool solos is so slow and takes ages to put out something worth listening to.

I really wonder why Metallica lets videos like this go out on youtube and make them look bad.

Over here at Racer X we don't want to release rehearsals in which I'm pretty sure the band rips through every song doing less mistakes than most other bands make when they're playing for real live... seems like Metallica on the other hand isn't afraid to show their shittiest performances.

I'm not saying that's a good thing either though.

I get mad too if people misspell the names of things and stuff I like too, it gets on my nerves.

And... no way. You're not going to. I assure you.

Kirk's solos are random, not because he's purposefully doing it. It's cause he doesn't know what the hell he's doing.
