Let me be the 1st one to ask a really stupid question. 

In the intro is one measure only 3 beats? 

I'm practicing this with a metronome and if one measure is only 3 beats then I think I've got it, if not then someone needs to teach me how to count.

Kind of: the song is in 6/8 time, so one measure has six 8th notes. Accent-wise you can count it 1 2 3 4 5 6.

I understand it was either 6/8 or 6/4 (depends on what tempo you put in) but it seems one measure is in 3/8.  Or I'm doing something else wrong. 

I need to find my old CD with this song so I can play along with it.  That's probably my best option to know I'm actually playing it write. Thank you.

Sorry, Saphira, seems I was being a bit daft yesterday (long, long day). It's a long time since I dissected this one, but fwiw I seem to dimly recall there's a half measure somewhere in there.

Cheers

Jack

I've started to add a bit of finger style to my lessons and I've given the intro of Nothing Else Matters a spin. Luckily, the normal and unplugged versions are very similar so I don't have to worry about only having an acoustic to play on. So far, it sounds quite good. I'm really stoked about learning this, it's one of my favourite tunes!
Thank you for the music!

Chantal, you can do it, a few tricky chords, but take your time and you'll get it down.

Hello all. I am learning this awesome song and got it up to the part in intro lesson 1 where Justin does his big stretch with his index finger on the second fret and then slides it up to the third fret. After that it is the bit with the fingering 5th fret 2nd 3rd 2nd flick  off  the E string 2nd 3rd and then chord, then move up 2 frets with fingering 1 2 and 3 and then the little fast bit before going on to the 12th fret with the harmonics. I can do all this but am having trouble finding the right speed and fingerpicking tempo to get the right sound. Can anyone help?. Thank you

I was just wondering if there is a reason for Justin to use sweeping in the verse. Sure, there must be, but what is it ?
I mean, the song is not particularly fast, and I find myself more confortable doing it with alternate picking. I tried to find a video where we can see James play this part, to see how he does it, but couldn't find one.

So, anyone to enlighten me?

PS : When we click on the link "So click this link to get help with this lesson!" from the nothing else matters lesson page, we are redirected to the neil young harvest forum lesson (http://justinguitarcommunity.com/?topic=22114.0), and not here.

Which vid?  The second one?  I see strums not sweeps.  But I may not be watching the right portion.  Which vid and about what time?

Yep the second one (calles "Verses"). he shows the right hand at 6'05.

Ahhh, I see what you mean.  I think that is just the way he plays it.  Not sure there is a reason per se.  At some point you reach a level of expertise where you just let your right hand pick how it wants to pick. 

I don't see a problem with you using alternate picking.  I have a when in doubt alternate pick personal rule.
