This exclusive Guitar World lesson continues only at http://www.guitarworld.com/ In this series of video, Alex Skolnick shows you how to play a jazz arrangement of the Metallica classic, "Fade to Black," from the new Alex Skolnick Trio album, Veritas. Here, Alex shows you how to play the song's intro, which is similar to the original but played an octave higher, and also a series of harmonics he plays over the intro. Live, he uses a looping pedal to play both parts.
