so ive recently learnt the whole of seek and destroy by metallica, all of it apart from the solo, and i wanna learn it, but the skill seems beyond me, do you guys know how to go about learning it, is the best way just to break it into sections?

Same thing happened to me with fade to black. Just split it up into little sections, practice each one, put them all together, practice the whole thing slow, speed up as needed. Hope this helps!

You could break it into sections. And remember to learn to play it slowly before you try full speed.

practice it slow until you have the whole thing memorized to the point where you could tab it off the top of your head, the concentrate on speed

The solo is effectively in 4 sections so practise all of them slowly until you feel comfortable to build up the speed gradually.

yes. i think guitar pro or any other similar software will be of great help. if you are really really having problems, put it at like half the speed. doesnt matter if the "slowness" makes you sound like shit.

you slowly increase the tempo by like 10 bpm or 5 bpm each time. be prepared to have to decrease by 10bpm at any time if you find that you're losing the foundation. (due to days of not playing, not free to practise, fingers injured, just can't concentrate)

Just randomly wank down the fretboard whilst tremolo picking the high E.

Et Voila, you have mastered Kirk Hammett.

All u need is a hardore wah sound, some distorsion, and improvising in the same key as the song. You don't even have to sound the same every time!!!
jk
But yeah, break it up in sections, memorize it without any errors, then buid on speed... and the wah is necissary if you wanna sound like Kirk, except add it on once you can play the solo perfectly, otherwise you'll screw yourself.

yea just learn the whole thing, practice it slow to a metronome. once you get up to proper speed try to play along to the actual song. or just pretend ur james hetfield and play rhythm.

Hammett*, lol just kidding. Yeah I'm not a huge fan of Kirk's solo style, but I think some of them are pretty awesome. Definitely learn part by part, remembering the whole thing at the start would just be a scramble of question marks.
