Featured on Rust in Peace, Megadeth's debut album, Tornado of Souls is a must have for any trash metal fan. It features one of the best guitar solos ever recorded by a heavy metal band (well, maybe Metallica).
One of the most recognizable bands in the history of rock and roll, it's no wonder that Megadeth is one of the most successful metal bands of all time. Their music is a perfect blend of aggression and melody, which is what makes it a favorite of fans and critics alike.
There are many ways to play the song, but we're going to focus on the most important elements. In addition to playing the song in time, we'll also examine how to properly mute the strings with our palms so that they don't ring out too much or too little. The aforementioned homage to the b-list riffs is the most difficult part of this exercise, so be sure to practice diligently to get the best results.
The song is also notable for containing the highest number of strums per second (the most efficient way to play guitar by the way). This statistic is especially impressive in light of the fact that this song has a remarkably fast tempo of 196 bpm. Using a metronome is a good place to start, but you'll need to be patient if you want to master this tricky symphony in no time.
