    exercise from kirk hammet(1)

    Like metallica. Well even if u don't and want to train your fingers for playing some great solos, here's an exercise from 'Kirk Hammet', lead-guitarist of MEtallica.The notes are all sixteenth and you can choose speed that suits best. I'll post the midi file later.The following exercise can help you in speed building and limbering your fingers as well.

    yes it seems a little standard ,wussy!!!! but i don't want to play like kirk i want to play like me , and enjoy every moment of it , wether its wrong,I'll experiment with it till i get it right he's a good guitarist but we can't hang on to loose dreams , The fun of music is figuring it out 4 myself , I practice to be better 4 me , make original song , Most of the times I came in here 4 lyrics in hindi, I don't look 4 tabs , thats taking away the fun!!!! Play on.
