^ Cause they play it to hell and back, and too many non-metal fans are like "hey, I like that never-never-land song!"

Same thing with NIN and Closer. "Dude, I'm not much into metal but I love that 'F*** you like an animal' song!"

Yeah, if you want a metal anthem from metallica, you gotta go with 'search and destroy' or 'Harvester of sorrow'

^as metal goes, Metallica was the Rat Pack of it's day. The members of the board, the founding fathers. Everything from the Black Album on was a little soft, but that's around the time they started getting old. However, for the most part they were the pioneers of their day, and the first metal band to say "F*** YOU!" to MTV and the grammys, which in my book gives them tons of points

Thats a song i should know. I mean i like the song, but damn, can't it be something easier.

Well either way the answer is you should know what ever song you like, but know it well.

P.S., I just moved from DC not to long ago. Where you at there, or are you just a fan of the team.

the song isnt too difficult once you're more efficient with picking and whatnot, the solo's another story though

Quite true, but i figure if you say you know how to play a song, you know how to play it all the way through.

i think the whole reason enter sandman is looked down upon is because there is a lot of people that dont know jack crap about metallica or metal and call themselves metallica fans cause they know enter sandman.

Where im from, real guitarists spit on Enter Sandman.


The whole idea that a guitarist should know some songs no matter what, is pretty stupid I think. Learn whatever you want, I say. I know that I brought my guitar in once or twice because I woke up inspired, and I got a bunch of dicks asking me to play them System of a Down, Stairway to Heaven, Enter Sandman, Master of Puppets, Green Day, etc. I was like, ew im never play that stuff.
#28
thats the problem

all any non guitaro thinks of when they think guitar is metallica, stairway to heaven and green day.


We should all know MY SHARONA!

Stairway to heaven

I don't care how bad you suck at it, or how much you will get beaten if you play it in a store, if you don't know how to play it, failure.

You can find the tabs on this website called Ultimate-guitar.com....oh wait.

So is taking shots at people on a forum

I just find it annoying. Not really sure why *shrug*

i've tried too many times to learn stairway to heaven. i give up already. i can't learn hard(er) songs from tabs, and i can't learn from online videos either. i need to be showed things or personally taught things, that's just the way my brain works.

and that is why i'll never be a good guitarist.

No one song should be known by all guitarists, I don't think we can get many people to agree on too much stuff, for instance how many of you like fall out boy, I do but I'm sure I'm in the small percentage. Sure I like Nirvana, but Smells like Teen Spirit is not my favorite song an I don't plan on learning it. So many people know Stairway to heaven I don't want to learn it. I'd rather learn some Hendrix or Fruscinate stuff. I am not a fan of metal and so I don't want to learn NIN or Metallica stuff.
