    Man, this guy is so amazing! He was one of my fav's back with S.T. but holy smokin' poo! Can he play a mean Flamenco!

    Absolutely the best muso in this band, IMO

    Cool stuff. He just schooled two of the kings of Metal guitar on...guitar. That was really great.

    Man that was sweet, even when James was playing it on electric. Be cool to see that on an album.
  5. Lars just has this look on his face like... "oh, great, now the bass player IS officially more talented than I am..."

    Damn drummers, so ego centric!!

    Nice! Always knew Rob had a ton of talent, going back to the Infectious Grooves days.

    Exactly. Rob was pretty much a perfect match for these guys. He has more talent than Lars will ever have, too, and with an awesome personality to boot :smug:

    Thangfish ...overly qualified for janitorical deployment...

    C'mon guys...

    He comes up with a simplistic riff that they mimic in 2 seconds, and that's called "schooling"?

    I mean really... the riff was sorta cool, but damn.

  9. Unfortunately for Lars, he always looks like that. :D

    He definitely must know he is and has always been the weak link as a musician in Metallica, though I can't say I'm too familiar with Ron McGovney's bass playing.
  10. That riff or jam is what turned into All Nightmare Long on Death Magnetic i think. Its in the making of the album dvd.

    Too true. Never heard Ron McGovney's playing. They did ditch him basically as soon as they even saw Cliff play, though. Hmm.

    Great Video, RT has always seemed to be more of a musician than a rock star. As far as schooling or simple riffs .... Sorry boys but this his how successful bands work and as simple riffs, could anyone who is talented enough to call flamenco simple, please record themselves throwing down & put up a link, cause I love it and can't play it worth a damn....:D

    It sounds a lot like "The God That Failed" to me.
  15. True, some of the best songs ever are written around simple chord structures and changes. You dont have to play everything like a talent competition to make good music.

    I would also like to nominate Lars for possibly being the most over-rated drummer of all time. Especially from people who dont have any formal music playing experience.

    Baird6869 RIP Gord Downey. A True Canadian Icon.

    Cool though. He is a talented guy for sure.

    I loved Hammett's comment at the end of the clip.... "We hate you!"

    You guys haven't heard a lot of Paco de Lucia huh? He would rock you up side down with his flamenco skills!

    I have not but I looked him up and man that guy is a badass. Thanks for pointing that out, I should look into taking some lessons to play that kind of stuff.
