Guitar Lick in the Style of Metallica

Today's guitar lick is in the style of early Metallica. Think "Master of Puppets" era playing by Kirk Hammett. This is an intermediate level lick. If this is too easy try tackling some of Kirk Hammett's faster licks on "Creeping Death" or "Dyer's Eve" for a real challenge.

This lick ends with an ascending unison bend sequence which is similar to many Metallica licks. The fast legato lick is based on the E Minor Pentatonic Scale.
