    Effects Question?


    I've been playing an acoustic for a month.

    Can you tell me what effects are used by James hetfield and Kirk Hammet. Usually James uses simple distortion but what does Kirk use, how does the guitar sound different than that of James, I mean the soloing must require something else than just distortion.

    Can you suggest some place where I can find various effects used in metal songs.

    I'm planning to buy an electric in a month, what effects should I buy with it.

    Just the Distortion and wah is needed for most metal tracks. But putting in other effects elevate it. Try to buy these 2 atleast
    I always thought the good thing about the guitar was that they didn't teach it in school.

    You run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking, racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older, shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
