10 Kirk Hammett Licks You Must Know

10 Kirk Hammett Licks You Must Know

As the lead guitarist for Metallica, Kirk Hammett has created some of the greatest and most memorable guitar solos over the years. In this lesson, I cover 10 licks in his style. I transposed all licks to the key of E, so that you can experiment with them easily.

There is a lot to get out of these licks. There is some usage of the harmonic minor scale, some tapping, some monster legato licks, and some pentatonics. Even if you are a blues player, there will be great things to take away from these licks.

Thanks for watching!
