    i dont know , I got it off of napster and its from a cd called Towers of Strength, and i believe its a live cd, and there was a guitar solo by Kirk hammett on the same cd, but, some one my have screwed up, and it could be flotsom &jetsom becuz i think it kinda sounds like his oldr work?? i dont know but its pretty damn sweet, and really fast!!!!!!!!!

    I just discovered last night, that the Tower of Strength album is an imported live album from Switerland or some place and the solo is called Solo Jasona, and i doubt very much that i could get the tab for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    arrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!!!!! at least i can listen to it a lot and maybe in time i'll be able to figure it out for my self!!! ha ha ha
     
  7. Something you may want to consider is downloading software that will slow the song down without changing the pitch. I downloaded software called 'transcribe'and it has helped me to isolate fast passages to the point where it becomes real easy to pick the notes out. The website is www.seventhstring.co.uk

    I used it on Stevie Wonder's 'Sir Duke' and it took me only a few minutes to pick out the notes... It took a lot longer to perfect the parts but the process was a lot easier.

    I'm a pretty big Metallica fan, (Saw the Summer Sanitarium concert, w/o james) but I've never heard of that song/album, is it any good?

    well ive only heard the bass and guitar solo, but its just a live album in europe and is preetty hard to find in North America , bur i'm assuming its good cuz it has Metallica's name on it.
