Beyond Metallica as a band entity, I have to say, Kirk Hammet is one of the most undeserving sucessful multi millionaire heavy metal guitar players out there. If you need anymore convincing,
then listen to his @!#$, basic, no feeling, no vibrato playing by downloading
some of their Metallica's off the cuff-bootleg-live recordings on Napster.
Kirk Hammet sounds like somebody who knows the basic mechanics of playing guitar, but has no feel at all. Zilch, zero, nada. His live lead playing has almost zero feel, which is the tombstone of death for any guitar player of merit.
The guys vibrato is so amateur and basic,
and his leads are the kind of pentatonic crap that any amateur guitar player
sounds like. He hides behind the wah pedal live and in the studio, and in the
studio, he hides behind multiple takes, months in the studio, multi thousand
dollar rack effects, and a big dollar producer like Bob Rock. Hard not to
sound halfway decent with those conditions!!!
If Kirk Hammet didn't have all that backing, he'd be okay for a bar band but he's no guitar god who when you listen to them, you know they were born to play guitar.
Hamhands sounds like somebody who just fell into guitar playing and was
lucky along the way. In fact, doesn't Metallica often describe themselves
as average guys no better than their fans? (they don't know how right they are)
The ironic thing about Hammet is the guitarists he worships, like Michael Schenker and Ulrich Roth, are much more talented and their playing sometimes sounds inspired by God, have never come close to tasting the success that a no talent hack like Kirk Hammett has.
