The intro solo for 'Welcome Home' off Master of Puppets is pretty simple, a week of practise and you should be able to go through it smoothly. I know its not a big 20th fret type solo, but it will impress ya mates.

yeah nothing else matters is a good one to start on.. if you can get that down, you can also learn the first solo in master of puppets (the slow one... its pretty much the same solo... way to be original james! napster bad lol)

I don't see why you think they are similar but nevermind.

I don't know what the easiest Metallica solo is because I haven't paid great attention to every solo. For example I bet there is a solo on Load or Reload that is much easier than Nothing Else Matters, however this is normally a good one to start with anyway

If u want an easy metallica solo go for Hero of The day, its just a repeating pattern.

I take it you are being sarcastic and don't actually think Van Halen is better than Hammett

there is a lot of similar expression of notes in both of the solos i mentioned... if you can't hear what im talkin about, then ... keep trying... you'll see the light someday. besides that, kirk repeats a lot of things from his early solos on later albums... it might be in a different key, but its the same patterns of notes over and over again. these points are useless to argue over... just accept that kirk hammet is not the most engenious guitar player in the world. just because he's your favorite doesn't mean he amounts to a pile of dogsh-it in the scheme of things. just like your favorite guitar string is not necessarily the best, and just like the metal zone is not the epitome of distortion pedals.

Firstly if you see my sig Hammett is near the bottom of my list of masters of the axe clearly indicating I don't think he is the best.

Anyway, why bring Hammett in to this? Hetfield plays both those solos.

I only know 1 metallica solo and that is master of puppets. I just never found it that hard. And for some reason I still find the solo to black dog hard. hmmmmm

Load/Reload has the easiest solos, Master/Justice contain the hardest, most complex. Rhythmwise try playing Blackened...that's what I thought. Matters is Het's song bottomline. If it weren't for him Hammet would be anyway. Eventhough he plays a mean giutar... 7 or 8 years ago. No hard feelings though that's just my opinion and like all disco songs it sucks, just like yours.
