In this Am I Evil? guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this popular Metallica cover in it's entirety.
This cover of a Diamond Head song originally appeared as a B-side of their single "Creeping Death" in 1984. The cover was re-released on their 1998 covers album Garage Inc..
The tuning is standard tuning.
In the first video lesson, I will demonstrate all of the rhythm guitar parts in the order that they appear in the song. In addition to that, I will cover Kirk Hammett's quick little solo in the intro of the song as well.
The main riffs are pretty simple, but a little later in the song, there are some thrash style rhythms that can be a bit tricky.
In the second video, I will cover Kirk Hammett's epic solo note-for-note.
There is a lot going on in this solo, with some very musical sections and others that are complete chaos.
I will go through the solo phrase-by-phrase.
I hope you enjoy learning this great Metallica cover!
