JOHN PETRUCCI Talks About His Favorite Riffs On “Distance Over Time” (Via GUITAR WORLD)

On this most recent installment, John Petrucci sat down with the good people at Guitar World to talk about his favorite riffs on the newest Dream Theater album Distance Over Time. The discussion not only leads to plenty of sick riffage, but John also goes over how he conceived of certain parts, why he chose to play them on a 7-string guitar for some tracks, and other compositional tools he and the band employed. The whole this is chock-full of juicy information for fellow songwriters out there, and you’re bound to learn something if you listen even for just a few minutes.
