Etherius's Jay Tarantino joins Guitar World to scratch your prog-metal itch and teach you how to play The Rivers of Sand and Blood - taken from the band's latest album, Chaos. Order. Renewal.
The track's first solo contains a plethora of jaw-dropping sweeps and multi-string tapping lines - a perfect opportunity to unleash your inner shred demon. You'll need a seven-string electric guitar for this one; Tarantino wields a Kiesel Aries 7 string through a Fractal Audio Axe-Fx II XL+ amp modeler.
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.
