It’s Rock Opera Sunday

So, as I mentioned a few days ago, Julia was given an acoustic guitar by my brother-in-law about two months ago. Julia went wild for it, and since she already plays the drums in the school band, figuring out the chords was not very difficult. It makes me very happy because my mother was a piano player, and it’s nice to see Julia continuing with music.

For the last two months, she has been sitting in her room, practicing online. There are a few internet sites which will show you how to play almost any song. Julia’s favorite band is Queen, but lately she has been drawn to rock, heavy metal and grunge. She has been tinkering with many songs, but Julia believes her best work is Master of Puppets from Metallica.

I’ve been begging her to play something on camera for the blog, and yesterday she agreed. Obviously, Master of Puppets sounds better on an electric guitar, but I think she does a great job. The song is eight minutes long, so I stopped her at four minutes.

I know this is not a big Metallica crowd, but the original song is above the video. Enjoy!

Two months. All self-taught, with some help from Uncle Mike.
