In 1993, Guitar World magazine introduced a column called The Sound & the Fury, penned by Metallica's master of metal guitar himself, Kirk Hammett. In his column, Kirk didn't just talk about his licks, riffs, warm-ups, and techniques, though - he taught them.

Along the way, he also answered a multitude of questions on every imaginable topic sent in by readers. As a result, The Sound & the Fury became a firm favorite and ran for several years. This book combines Kirk's columns into one convenient volume.

Topics include: Kirk - The Story So Far - Metallica - The Story So Far - Kirk's Influences and Inspirations - The Axes, Amps, and Pedals He's (Ab)Used Throughout His Career -Exercises and Warm-Ups - Lead-Playing Tips and Techniques - The All-Important Art of Rhythm Guitar - Licks, Riffs, and Leads Discussed and Dissected - and much more!

This book also includes access to recorded demonstrations of dozens of music examples played by Nick Bowcott. Audio is accessed online using the unique code inside the book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
