Few bands can compete with the arresting aesthetics and all-out rock fury of GWAR. Adopting larger-than-life monikers - Balsac the Jaws of Death and Beefcake the Mighty, to name but a couple - and donning even larger horror-themed stage outfits, the five-piece have been assaulting speakers and screens around the world since 1984.
For today's special episode of Sick Riffs, lead guitarist Pustulus Maximus joins us to teach you how to play Auroch - taken from the band's 2017 album The Blood of Gods - in full. His electric guitar of choice is a Dean Custom Shop ML "Croc-top" and it's running through 3 different Marshall amps.
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.
