Joseph Quinn can shred in the Upside Down and the Right-side Up.

The Stranger Things actor, who plays the beloved Dungeons and Dragons-loving metalhead Eddie Munson, jams the Metallica classic “Master of Puppets” during a dramatic scene in the Netflix sci-fi series’ season four finale. And if you thought the performance was all camera trickery, think again.

The Stranger Things writers shared a video on Twitter of Quinn practicing the “Master of Puppets” riff behind the scenes and working on replicating James Hetfield‘s downpicking.

“Practice makes perfect,” the caption reads.

Along with Quinn’s playing, Tye Trujillo, son of ‘Tallica bassist Robert Trujillo, recorded guitar tracks for the scene.

Metallica previously issued a statement saying that they were “beyond psyched” and “totally blown away” by the “Master of Puppets” placement in Stranger Things. According to Billboard, streams of the song have increased 400% since the season four finale’s premiere on July 1.

As an extra thanks, Metallica sent a Master of Puppets box set to Stranger Things music supervisor Nora Felder.
