THE WEEKLY RIFF: WITHERFALL’s Jake Dreyer Shows You This “Ode to Despair” Solo!

Witherfall guitarist Jake Dreyer recently stopped by GG HQ to show us a couple of new riffs from the band’s new album Prelude to Sorrow! In this lesson, Jake breaks down the guitar solo for the song “Ode to Despair”, and boy howdy, you’re gonna wanna buckle up for this one. Drawing from neoclassical aspects of guitar playing, Jake channels his inner Yngwie (which we all have, by the way) and unleashes the shreddy fury in this doozy of a solo. But don’t fret, because he breaks it all down section by section so you won’t have to worry about trying to learn this stuff by ear.

Check it out, and be sure to follow these dudes over on Facebook and Instagram!
