A special video for my 20th upload! I decided to honour Metallica’s “One” from the album “…And Justice for All”, which celebrates its 30th birthday this month, in a unique way.
I played all acoustic and clean guitar parts and the three guitar solos on the piano and covered the drums as well. “One” is one of Metallica’s most popular songs and is a musical and dramaturgic masterpiece. The lyrics deal with a soldier who lost his sight, speech, hearing and limbs because of a landmine and now only wishes to die. Unable to communicate or move, his initial desperation turns into anger. This is perfectly depicted by the music which changes from a melancholic ballad to a furious and thrilling thrash metal song.
