In today's episode of Sick Riffs, we bring you Alex Pi of Greek rock outfit Puta Volcano. He's here to teach you how to play the huge chorus riff of Sugar Cube, taken from the band's 2020 album, AMMA. It's relatively slow-tempo, which makes room for the permeation of some truly gargantuan guitar tones.
While the track is recorded tuned to drop C#, in this video, Pi explains the riff in terms of drop D for simplicity.
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.
