I just threw an EMG 60 in the neck with an 81 in the bridge, could not be happier. Was going to go with the "Het Set" but I like older Metallica, can't stand their new sound.

I think this is really...

I don't understand how people can play with a closed fist, or fingers curled in. My ring and pinky (knuckles) always drag on the strings and the high e feels like it's going to cut me.

New Amp Suggestions?

Originally I was going to buy a new set of pickups, but upon reading ALOT of threads here the amp has more to do with tone than anything.

Currently I'm using an Ibanez RG with EMG 81/81 setup, I was...

Kind of like the power chords in The Shortest Straw, some have to be upstroked to get the same sound. You can downstroke them, but listen to the album and it sounds like ass in comparison.

Agreed.

Sure it could just be personal preference, but I'd rather sound as close to the song as possible. Also, you won't get ripped on by other people for not playing it down picked.

Galloping

Hello,

Wondering if there are any good exercises for galloping? Like the type in Battery by Metallica. Or should I just practice the main riff (slowly) until I get it. My issue is, I'm not sure if...

Just for knowledge sake, why would the other strings ring out like that if I'm not touching them? Just the...
