Groundbreaking: Watch Metallica’s “One” Played On One Guitar String

Today’s daily dose of internet garbage is brought to you by Pete Cottrell, the genius behind the egg-ceptional cover of “Symphony of Destruction”, the valiant attempt at making brutal music with a tuned UP guitar, and the cover of Meshuggah’s “Straws Pulled At Random” played with sugary snacks. His latest stunt is a playthrough of Metallica’s “One” — played entirely on a one-string guitar.

TECHNICALLY there’s at times three different tracks of one-string playing, so it’s up to you to decide if that really counts or not. Either way, Cottrell still plays better on one string than I can on six, and he throws in some interesting stylistic choices that put his rendition on par with, if not better than (don’t fire me) the original. Somebody give this guy his own signature guitar! Watch the video below.
