"Whiplash" is a song by American heavy metal band Metallica. It is credited to James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich and was the sixth track and first single from their 1983 debut album Kill 'Em All. The song has been covered several times, most notably by Motörhead whose version won a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.[1]

The song is about the feeling one experiences when headbanging. ("...thrashing all around, acting like a maniac, whiplash!..").

WalkthroughEdit

This song can easily strain out your strumming hand due to the very fast strumming of the verses. Even worse, the solo is very complicated. Overall, this song can be very tough for an inexperienced player. The opening chords can be milked for star power, which can be saved for the horrendous solo.
