Very good guitarist for Metallica. There are better though, like Vai, Satch, Petrucci though.
Kirk Hammett is a very good guitar player and can come up with great catchy solos.

Guitarist for metal band metallica. Started guitar at age 15 playing in a few bands, most famous are probably exodus, he then was asked to join metallica.

A famous guitarist in the metal world, even though he isn't very impressive, most of his guitar solos are very average and he is praised only because metallica are the most famous metal band.

For some other better metal guitarists, listen to marty friedman or dimebag darrell

1) One who has mastered pentatonic scales and can blow your mind with them.

2) Metallica's Lead Guitarist that has composed some pretty amazing solos to date. Things that make him happy include pentatonic scales and wah wah pedals. And don't forget his stuffed two headed sheep and his thrash metal!
Man... That Kirk Hammett is blowing my mind. I wish he would stop using those Em Pentatonic scales/

A San Franciscan who started playing at the age of 15. Now the lead guitarist in metallica Hammet is pushing the limits of guitarists. But one question why no solos on St. Anger?
