Truthfully, it's hard to pin down Voyager's sound without going off on a descriptive tangent. The Aussie prog-metal outfit are adept at blending a vast array of influences into their music, and they do so to wondrous effect on their most recent full-length effort, Colours in the Sun.
Its opening track, Colours, encapsulates the group's out-there writing style well, employing harsh synths, odd time signatures and dizzying guitar lines to spectacular effect.
Guitarist Scott Kay joins us in today's episode of Sick Riffs to teach you how to play one of the track's riffs - and he's even included tab! This one's heavy on the bends, and therefore an excellent opportunity for you to practice your precision.
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.
