So a buddy of mine made the mistake of arguing on the internet and didn't even get through to this whole board of people who seem to think that James Hetfield has only ever struck a guitar string in a downward manner.

Not trying to slag off Metallica, but this board of clueless Hetfield fanboys claiming he downpicks "Fight Fire With Fire" was at least good for a laugh:

I tend to agree that he might indeed be the fastest downpicker of all time. Once you get past the fanboys, Hetfield is an underrated rhythm guitarist. If anyone topped his down/alternate dexterity its because they wanted to be better at it than james.

Yeah, he's obviously an amazing rhythm guitarist...what I found amusing was that the fanboys think this means he downpicks stuff like Fight Fire with Fire, which is, frankly, ridiculous.

Like I said, once you get past the metallica fanboys. I mean if you made a top 10 thread all time rhythm guitarist thread here it would go on 200 pages and probably not a single mention of Hetfield.

I don't think so. Hetfield has been regarded as one of the best rhythm guitarists for quite some time.

Well in fairness, modern day Metallica (and Slayer) fans are basically members of a cult who remove your brain when you join.

You should design merch with this quote. Brilliant truth spoken.
