Seek and Destroy Free Lesson Video

Hey guys! Thanks for requesting this Metallica tune. I had a blast with this. My vision for this project was to try and replicate the guitar tones but also use similar drum sounds from the Black Album while keeping a similar bass tone to the legend himself, Cliff Burton. If you have Amplitube, you can get my guitar tone settings on my Patreon page. There are many other perks for Patrons listed in the description of this video if you’d like to check that out! Downpicking is the way to go for the rhythm in this tune. The solo was a challenge to get note for note with the really fast picking part. I’m not sure if Hammett was aiming for a particular pattern or if he just randomly hit notes in measure 148 and 149. But it sure sounds completely awesome on the Studio take. It’s up to you if you want to get it note for note exact. This is one of the coolest solos he has written IMO. I’m getting a lot of requests for Creeping Death, Blackened, and some really classic Metallica. I love it. There’s some really heavy bands being requested. Pantera, Megadeth, Motley Crue, Sabbath, Sevenfold, etc. What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below!

Tone ScreenSHots

All of the guitar tones for this Seek and Destroy lesson were created with IK Multimedia Amplitube. I tried matching the solo and rhythm section tones from Metallica recording as closely as I could.  If you haven't already, download Amplitube and give it a try.

Isolated TRACKS (mp3)

Here are the drums, bass and other background tracks to jam along to Seek and Destroy. I've also included all of my isolated guitar tracks in case you really want to hear what's going on. Isolated tracks are normally very difficult to find online, and can be very helpful in cracking a difficult solo tab.
