Hey PPL why does Kirk Hammet put a tape or what is it around the whole length of his palm of the right hand and runs it around the back of his hand too. Anybody who has seen their "Cunning Stunts" concert will understand. Does it help in any fashion while playing?

maybe palm muting sounds different, is easier?



Like this, rite?

It has probably something to do with his wah pedal.


Perhaps it makes sure it's always on?

So the strings don't cut his hand. We all know Kirk Hammett uses cheese wire for guitar strings. That's how he gets those crazy Pinch Harmonics.

Or maybe thats Zakk Wylde........


Honestly, though, no idea.

AN IDEA!!! if you did the same to your fretting hand with electrical tape or something slick, you could move up and down the neck faster!

Oh, DON'T use a knife. It cuts through your strings. I did that once, thinking, its the Low E, its invincible. Turns out, its not...

it's so that he doesn't hurt his hand as he bashes it into the strings at random to get that distinctive hammet sound.
