"To Live Is To Die" by Metallica takes me on a journey, and it seems to tell an ineffable story. I can hear the story in the music, but I couldn't
tell you much about the plot. I don't think that's surprising when you consider that it was probably meant to be that way. It is a tribute to Clifford
Lee Burton and his family.
This song is so good I forget it is an instrumental.
Yes, Mood For a Day was the very first song I ever learned how to play.
As a guitar player, I learned by copying the Ventures. That is where I learned some rock and roll (I know, E7 is sooo rock, right?). But that was a
gateway drug to other bands and sounds. It took me out the "I want to play classical guitar" thought process. It all traces back to Walk Don't Run for
me. There are so many good instrumentals out there. Surprised that we are not page 7 by now!
