My favourite intro is ONE by quite some margin, then Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters (yep, I'm a sucker for their commercial shit).

I can see why people enjoyed Black album. It got the most exposure on the radio. James Riffs went for raw efficiency over technicality, and Kirk had some incredible phrasing in his solos.

 

Funny thing about One, is the hand position is recycled from Fade to Black. I'm working on something involving an arpeggio from that same hand position. I don't know what it will be probably either an intro or a bridge.

 

The two hardest ones here BY FAR are "Call of Ktulhu" "And justice for all" Master of puppets is tough on the e minor to D switch in the beginning, because you are lifting and completely replanting with no anchor finger but after a smooth transisition from the hammer on/pull off it's smooth sailing.

 

Do you play?

unfortunately not, as a kid I never had the patience to learn something that needs a lot of refinement, and, more importantly, although I love music I probably don't have the talent to play an instrument. 

A friend of mine does, however he can only play the "easy versions" of the metallica riffs. He started playing when he was in his fourties.

I can respect the honesty of not having the patience. If you want to leave the idea there full stop. 

 

But, If the idea of talent is what really kept you from participating. Don't let it. Talent only matter after 10'000 hours if you have dreams of being pro. Even then only kind of. 

 

Even Hendrix and Van Halen started with nothing. George Harrison apparently had "Anti talent" As in very little came together for him in his early years, and he struggled to learn basic things. 

 

I know that if your curiosity outweighs your impatience, You could learn every one of these songs.

 

All of the intros to your favorites with reasonably little difficulty. 

 

I started music 4 years ago. Guitar 2 years ago. Before then I didn't have an artistic bone in my body. But Youtube teachers and determination allowed me to learn things I didn't think possible.

 

If you hear songs that make your hair stand on end, and you catch yourself thinking. "I'd like to learn that." Then go for it.
