The Top 5 Thrash Metal Acoustic Intros
Back in the 80's some of the music that really inspired me was only minutes or even seconds long. The classical intros at the start of thrash metal songs were a massive influence on me and a lot of the music I do now reflects this.
Here is an good one from Metallica and one of the earliest Fight Fire with Fire:
Sepultura - Beneath The Remains is great, classic record as well:
My first record was quite influenced by this by Annilhilator - not that I'm a guitar player in Jeff Waters league. This is bloody brilliant, listen to those harmony parts!!:
Megadeth Good Mourning has an amazing intro - not totally acoustic but really a bit special.
And Metallica Again - Battery
Because back then(early 90's)it was hard to get access to classical guitar stuff this was my only really exposure to that sound when I was a teenager. Then I got into Mclaughlin and Paco De Lucia and all that.
Anyone else recommend any good thrash acoustic intros?
