While you anticipate the release of Vanny Tonon's second album, you can learn the main riff of The Hybrid Master of Time. In it, Tonon employs a technique he dubs “The Hybrid Slap.” This one may seem daunting at first, but as with all aspects of guitar learning, start slow and it'll all make sense pretty quickly.
Tonon plays an Ibanez AZ Prestige electric guitar through a Victory V40 amp head, Eventide H9 multi-effects, TimeFactor delay and Space reverb pedal.
