A quick update today from Tool land – guitar player Adam Jones gives us a quick lesson on how to play a section of Pnuema via Instagram. It’s a nice part, one I’ve attempted to play a few times with limited success, so looking forward to analysing it a bit over the coming days:
I gotta say, I might just have small fingers or something, but he makes it look much easier than it seems to me!
tbh the majority of Tool is easy to play. there are occasional songs (7empest) with ridiculous parts, but if you can get your head around the irregular meters, most songs aren’t technically difficult… imho, the mastery of what Adam does is timbral / tonal
You’re not the only one with small fingers Hellboy!
Before I even sat down to try this, I pneuma guitar skills weren’t good enough to pull it off.
@hellboy we’re gonna need a 7 day ban for this one
Go before the 7empest comes
