Singer and rhythm guitarist James Hetfield wrote this song while on the phone with his girlfriend. Since he held the phone with one hand, he plucked the four open strings of a standard E-minor chord with the other, which eventually made up the first two bars of the song. The lyrics were also dedicated to his girlfriend, which talk about being "so close, no matter how far", indicating the bond they shared even when Hetfield was on tour. Initially, the song was not meant to go on the album, and Hetfield had written it for himself, but only after drummer Lars Ulrich heard it was it considered for the record.
The song has now become a staple in Metallica's live performances, and has been dedicated to their fans. When played live nowadays, the last clam verse is left out, ending the song with Kirk Hammett's second, heavily distorted guitar solo. A live version on which this can be heard can be found on the CD/DVD Orgullo, Pasión y Gloria: Tres Noches en la Ciudad de México. Other live recordings can be found on Live Shit: Binge & Purge and on S&M.
"Nothing Else Matters" is a song by heavy metal band Metallica. The song reached #11 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in 1992.
This song also featured as a playable track on the game Guitar Hero: Metallica.
Its intro is an E minor arpeggio beginning with the open low E followed by the open G, B and high E strings. It was first rumored, and then confirmed by Hetfield on Classic Albums: The Black Album DVD, that he started composing it while he was on the phone with his girlfriend and only had one free hand.
It is one of the few Metallica songs in which Hetfield, rather than Hammett, plays the guitar solo. Given that Hetfield recorded all rhythm and most harmony tracks on the band's first five albums, it is therefore the only Metallica song that does not feature Hammett's playing (excluding Cliff Burton's bass solo (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth). In response to a question asked by a fan in So What!, the magazine of Metallica's official fan club, Hetfield confirmed that he recorded every guitar track on the song.
