So what’s better than backwards rock? Backwards metal. And what better metal band to throw backwards than Metallica?! That was all I needed to put this one together. I present: The opening riff to “Master of Puppets”… backwards!
In the backwards rock catalog, this one falls under the category “easy to learn, hard to master”. I cheated on the performance – I used alternate picking instead of nothing but downstrokes – because James Hetfield is possibly not human. And, of course, I kept the bass and drums similar to the original. Enjoy, let me know what you think, and I’ll see you soon.
