Today marks a truly momentous occasion in Sick Riffs history. Not only is this the 60th entry in the series, but it’s also the very first time an artist has acknowledged that Sick Riffs is a pun. Success at last! The guitarist we have to thank is Andrew Kyne, six-stringer for Philadelphia pop-punks Grayscale - although the track he teaches us today, In My Arms, is a hit of pure pop adrenaline.
Kyne plays his ’07 Fender American Strat and fires up his Kemper Profiler to give us with a runthrough of the full track - including onscreen tab! An EarthQuaker Bit Commander is key to the gnarly synth sound for the main licks, while you’ll need to employ liberal use of a compressor to nail those funky clean ‘chickas’.
