Are you ready to put your two-handed tapping to the test? Steve Dadaian's Red River - taken from his debut album Follow the Light - has the technique in abundance, and the man himself joins us today to show you how to play it. He's even included a real-time tab at the bottom of the screen so you can follow along!
Oh, and did we mention it has some nimble alternate picking runs too? This one should keep you entertained for a hot minute...
Dadaian plays an ESP Custom electric guitar fitted with DR Tite Fit strings through Neural DSP Fortin Nameless and NTS digital amp modeling plugins.
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.
