1 “Enter Sandman”

“It’s the first song I learned on guitar. That riff will never leave my head.”

3 “Guerilla Radio”

“Tom Morello’s playing style is truly one of a kind; he showed me that there are no limits with any sort of effects and that some of the simplest riffs are some of the grooviest.”

4 “Into the Mirror”
Minus the Bear

“I’ve always been blown away by how awesome the guitar players in this band are—multiple loop stations going on and so many effects.”

5 “Hos Down”
