If you're the proud owner of a 7-string electric guitar, today's Sick Riff is for you. Final Tale - taken from Copenhagen bruisers Ghost Iris's 2019 album Apple of Discord - sees guitarist Nicklas Thomsen open with a notably chunky main riff that immediately sets the stage for the rest of the track.
Now, Thomsen joins Guitar World to show you the ground-pounder in all its glory. You'll need to tune to drop A, with the low string tuned to E for this one. So that's: E-A-E-A-D-F#-B.
Sick Riffs is a Guitar World video series designed to help guitarists affected by the coronavirus. Self-isolating players around the world have each filmed a lesson where they teach you one of their own guitar riffs, up close and personal. If you dig the lesson, we encourage you to buy music and merch from the artist or stream their music.
