If you're a fan of grunge, but also love a bit of classic rock, you may have just found your new favorite band in The Jailbirds, who blend fuzz-laden tones with monstrous riffs.
One such example is the title track from the band's 2019 EP The Black River, which boasts a particularly crunchy low-string riff. Fortunately for you, guitarist Myke Penney joins Guitar World to teach it to all you aspiring riffers.
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.
