If you are born with a natural talent for music as one who comes a family of musicians it would be normal for you to easily learn to play a musical instrument. Even without having to take lessons on reading musical notation, you would be prone to learn to play music by ear.
As a youngster or a young at heart, you would be more inclined to like the rock genre of music. Since rock music is heavy on the sound of electric guitar on the lead, you would be more inclined in learning guitar among all other musical instruments.
Heavy metal rock especially the songs played by the American metal rock band Metallica may be quite hard to learn paying by ear. So, in order to master it with good proximity to the real Metallica sound even with their slower metal rock song, it would be best to take, for example, a “Nothing Else Matters” guitar lesson.
The song “Nothing Else Matters” is truly worth learning more technically in the guitar because it is one of Metallica’s famous songs listed in the top-ten on a lot of rock charts in Europe. It was even featured as part of the musical soundtrack in a famous videogame and has been covered in no less than forty recorded versions.
As a background story behind the song’s composition, James Hetfield, Metallica’s rhythm guitarist and singer, was speaking with his girlfriend on the telephone when he started writing “Nothing Else Matters”. With only one hand free, he simply plucked the lower four strings of the guitar which brought the song to open at the E-minor chord.
In the context of that phone conversation which took place while the band was on tour, the lyrics of the song flowed toward the direction of love on a long distance theme. It begins with the famous line “so close, no matter how far” which expresses the bond of love between Hetfield and his girlfriend that was unbreakable by distance.
Being quite a personally intimate song, Hetfield did not originally intend it to be recorded. But after Lars Ulrich, the band’s drummer listened to it they decided to include it in the Metallica’s self-title album in 1991.
As a song belonging to the metal rock genre, “Nothing Else Matters” poses a real challenge in guitar playing even if it may be slower in tempo. This means that it could be better learned by taking chunks of the song and mastering it one at a time.
In mastering the “Nothing Else Matters” guitar lesson, it would be best to download the online video so that you could learn it by parts and then repeatedly follow the instructions in replay guitar video lesson practice sessions.
