I'll say.
They were originally going make Claudio a part of Mount Rushmore, but the material was not tough enough to sculpt his hair out of.

"St. Anger" was done in Drop Z tuning, they were trying to "out heavy" Slipknot.

Classical Gas. Preferebly Eric Clapton's version.
That song absolutely owns me.

Edit: Also, Mediterranean Sundance by Al DiMeola
If you have the skills, go for it. It has two guitars, so you can learn the rythm and the lead if you really feel like it, both are great though. It's an incredible song.

Funny considering he's never recorded that song


(it was Mason Williams)
And yes, it is a fantastic song.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

the intro to nothing else matters can be played clean or acoustic and it sounds awesome. not sure how much of the song you can actually play acoustic though


You can play the whole song with the exception of the solo rhythm and lead parts. Other than that there's no trouble really.
