Metallica has an acute knack for making everything sound hardcore — even a 6/8 timed ballad like “Nothing Else Matters.” This song peaked at #11 in the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks and endures today as a ubiquitous soundtrack of ’90s metal nostalgia. Drummer, Lars Ulrich, lays down intimidating, powerful drum fills and an infectious, lethargic feel that assuages the ears. If you’re looking to add a power-rock ballad to your repertoire (and some hard-hitting 6/8 drum fills), this song is a perfect one to turn to. Download and print the note-for-note drum transcription for “Nothing Else Matters,” and set your ballad dial to forte as you rock this ’90s staple.
