Butchering Disposable Heroes

Alright, so this is my favorite Metallica song and I decided to give it a go…

yeah, I know there’s a few mistakes and the mix is far from perfect..

I find my backing tracks at places like this.

  1. Pretty cool. Did you do all the guitars on this, or did you do the bass as well?

    This was one of the songs I used to jam to as an endurance test, so I gotta ask… the the melody that bridges the pre-chorus to the chorus: were you intentionally trying to do something different?

    1. The bass is none other than the late, great Clifford Burton.

      I did the guitars rhythm and lead, since it is a jam track a few spots have some pre-recorded rhythm guitars but the rest is me.

      Yes, this is an endurance test and I panned one rhythm track left and one right-each a complete take taking the best of a few tries and no punch ins. I know I’m not 100 % faithful to every note but I feel like I’m 90%-or close enough for rock n roll. I heard Chimaira do Disposable and Mastodon do Orion and they weren’t 100%. Ironically, the most faithful Metallica cover i’ve heard was Trivium doing MOP. So, yeah, I changed a few things, not so much intentionally. Maybe I’ll give Battery or Ride The Lightning a go…
