I love how Metallica's old music was generally based on Classical theory[thanks to Kirk Hammett]. So I was wondering if you wonderful UGer's wouldn't mind pointing me to some[prefer youtube links] really pretty/beautiful/amazing lead guitar songs. In Example: One by Metallica. The solos were generally based on Classical guitar.

PLEASE! I need this!
I got some good guitars, yo.

I don't know if that was unintentional, but it's funny how Malmsteen is separated by a space, lol.

Symphony X is a great progressive band with classical influences.
If you play guitar, please don't waste your time in The Pit, and please instead educate yourself in the Musician Talk forum, where you can be missing out on valuable info.

The first two artists just use classical inspired licks in their playing whilst yngwie malmsteen's repertoire almost only exists of that
