ABR – Sick Of It All (Riggs Guitar Practice / Demo Sessions)

Published on Mar 30, 2019

I’ve decided to start vlogging my guitar sessions while I’m re-learning and re-working riffs for the ABR album to see how they evolve from the pre-production demo stage that we’re at right now up until how they end up on the final recording. Here’s today’s practice session testing out Drop B flat tuning on ’Sick of it All’…

ABR – I Am The Poison (Riggs Guitar Practice / Demo Sessions)

Published on Mar 4, 2019

Trying out various guitar solo ideas and pitch shifting settings on the pedal for ‘I Am The Poison’. (I actually ended up running with a totally different solo on the demo recording, but good practice all the same!)

ABR – No True Glory (Riggs Bass Practice / Demo Sessions)

Published on Feb 5, 2019

I’ve found a track that I wrote and (very roughly) demo’d back in 2010, without a bass track on it, so that means only one thing…… 200 BPM HARDCORE BALLS TO THE WALL BASS JAM!!! ENJOY!

ABR – Out Of Time (Riggs Bass and Drums Practice / Demo Sessions)

Published on Jan 16, 2015

The lead and rhythm guitar tracks all need re-recording as they are the old audio stems from the 2007 scratch demo… but never the less, not a shabby effort for a first blast at the drum part (which I have never played before today) and the new reworked bass part. All in the name of practice, practice, practice!!!

ABR – Riggs Drums Practice

Published on Dec 30, 2014

More drum practice trying out my new Tama Iron Cobra Power Glide double pedals. I doubt we’ll be using this song as it sounds waaay too similar to Shadows Fall, but I needed some sort of backing track so… sue me.
