Today, we bring you Aussie instrumental post-rockers sleepmakeswaves, who are currently in the process of releasing an EP trilogy, these are not your dreams. Two EPs have been released thus far - No Safe Place and Out of Hours - with the third - Not an Exit - expected later this year.
Guitarist Alex Wilson joins us to show you how to play the outro riff of pyramids, the first track from Out of Hours. This one's a prime chance for you to practice playing in unusual time signatures and familiarize yourself with altered tunings.
Wilson plays an Epiphone Dot electric guitar tuned to C-G-D-G-B-E running through a Brainworx digital 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.
