The Gods of Isolated Guitar Tracks have gifted us once again. This time, the goods come in the form of Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield’s solos on Metallica’s iconic track “Master of Puppets.”

YouTube poster Kaosware recently uploaded a clip of the isolated guitars to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Master of Puppets. TAB for the solos is embedded in the video, so if you’re at all tempted to give this one a try, here’s everything you need. Just be sure to warm up your hands first. Some of those triplet-based licks are so fast, you just might hurt yourself if you’re not careful.
