I usually say I’m the daughter of a musician, because my dad can play different instruments – BUT – first and foremost, I’m the daughter of a guitarist. Acoustic, electric, steel, ukulele, banjo, dad can jam on just about anything with strings.
You have to watch him at family BBQ’s, though. This is where he likes to sneak the banjo out and pick the creepy chords from Deliverance.
“Oh c’mon, it’s funny.”
“You’re scaring the neighbors.”
“I know, that’s why it’s funny.”
Yep, my twisted sense of humor is all natural, folks, what can I say? 😉
And my dad’s one of those musicians who can play by ear, too, the brat. He doesn’t need sheet music like the rest of us. Growing up with the sound of live guitar music definitely influenced my love for the instrument and there are certain songs where the guitar will instantly cut right through the fabric of my reality, put me in a trance and I’m a slave to it for life. It will always have that power over me, even years later.
Metallica is known for their guitar rifts and intros, it’s one of their trademarks, so it’s not easy to pick a song that demonstrates that better than the rest. And I know, I totally picked a “girly” song from the lot, but you just stick around and I’ll show you some real girly metal [insert evil grin here]. This is my Metallica Guitar Song, the one that did me in from the first note. (Fade to Black is a very close second.) Enjoy!
Man, I totally forgot how bad I used to crush on Lars back in the day…*sigh*
