When Metal Goes Acoustic
When heavy metal needed a ballad that appealed to each the lover and fighter in all of us, Metallica stepped up and delivered with ‘Nothing Else Matters’. Written by Hetfield for his girlfriend at the time, it is a track about defying the odds stacked against couples that are far apart from each other, and Swedish fingerstyle guitarist Gabriella Quevedo completely nails that feeling on this rendition!
At 16, Gabriella arranges most of her covers on her own, making this rendition of ‘Nothing Else Matters’ all of the more impressive. She performs each the rhythm and melody of the track, all the time mindful of her timing so that she doesn’t unintentionally skip one in favor of one other, and hers is a cover that too appeals to the lover and the fighter in everybody.Download Our App
Fun Fact: Gabriella’s only been playing for six years whole, and has been playing professionally since the age of 12.
This rendition of ‘Nothing Else Matters’ is one which declares Gabriella as a force to be reckoned with within the guitar world! She approaches it with a whisper but it still packs the same punch as if she’d approached it with a roar!
