Riff Of The Month: Tool: Schism

Total Guitar - - CONTENTS -

Gui­tarist Adam Jones is well known for us­ing Gib­son Les Pauls. The tone on this riff comes from a bright sound­ing, tre­ble-rich bridge hum­bucker with a lit­tle drive adding bite. All but the clean­est amps will have enough gain to get you a ball­park tone. The stu­dio record­ing uses dou­ble track­ing for a fat­ter sound – you could try us­ing a cho­rus or flanger with slow, light set­tings for a sim­i­lar ef­fect.
