Sorry if this is not the place to post this but I couldn't find anywhere else to.

So yeah, I am just wondering if anybody knows of a good free online video lesson which shows you how to play the second solo in Metallica's Master of Puppets. I am having a bit of trouble with it so I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks.

Which part of the solo do you find difficult? If it's the beginning lick (which it probably is) then all I can say is barre the top E and B string with your index finger to make the pull-offs easier. If you can't pick fast enough then you just need to practice getting better at guitar.

Nope, theres 2 solos, the second one being faster and tricker. On a few tabs I've seen the first called "James solo" while the second is "Kirk solo."

For the first part of it, bar the 12th fret E and B strings with index finger, and do pulloffs with your pinky and middle finger.

So the interlude, starting around 3:30 with a clean intro and then around 3:40ish (top of my head) isn't a solo because....it's not fast enough? :S

It's a solo. Or a dual guitar solo. Either way, it's a solo in some form all the way through (1 part 2 guitars, 1 part one guitar) If you think a solo absolutely has to be 1 person, then I guess you'd probably be claiming Wishbone Ash didn't do solos....

if you're being pedantic, the solo section isn't unison giutars, it's one backing with the interlude riff underneath the other soloing.

I'm not being pedantic at all, that's the people saying it's not a solo. The bit that's unison guitars is also a solo, I don't see why it shouldn't be just because it's a two guitar piece...Like I said, wishbone ash did it all the time.

the word solo has been used too many times in this thread

good luck on that piece of guitar playing that is the main focus in that particular part of the song

Oh stop trying to be 'smart' and grow up, there's two solos.

Annoying child.
