 /  Kirk Hammet Guitar Lessons  /
/______________________________/

I found these old blurry note sheets on the internet and rewrote them as tabs.
The title of them was 'Kirk Hammet Guitar Lessons', and was suppose to be some
rhythm figures that Kirk Hammet used for warm up before concerts. Well, the
internet page was a Czech page, and the entire concept lacked a little of
credibility, so I think I'd be a bit optimistic to believe that these rhythm
figures was either written or used by Kirk Hammet... But no offence, I used them
for warm up, and they were great - just as great as any other thing you can play
to heat up your fingers, but no there's really no musicality in them.
