Learn How to Play Metallica’s “Ride the Lightning” on Guitar
The Big Four of thrash—Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax—are set to play New York City’s Yankee Stadium on September 14. It will be the second time ever that all four groups have shared a stage in the United States. To mark this occasion, Revolver and Guitar World are celebrating the event with the Big Four Weeks leading up to the event. For the next month or so, leading up to the show, our websites will be giving fans eye-popping exclusives (like the Big Four trading cards from the September/October issue), previously unseen backstage video, and excerpts from our interviews with the bands.
Metallica have come up with some of the greatest riffs in metal history and today we’re giving you the opportunity to learn how to master one of them yourself. Check out GuitarWorld.com and watch a video detailing how to play the post-chorus riff on the title track of Metallica’s second album, Ride the Lightning.
