Quick Lick: Anthrax - "Madhouse"

In Quick Licks, we'll be bringing you short, bite-sized video lessons that show you how to play classic riffs from your favorite songs.

In the following video, Guitar World's Matt Scharfglass shows you how to play the intro riff to the Anthrax classic, "Madhouse," which comes from the band's 1985 album Spreading the Disease.

This Quick Lick is one of many coinciding with the "Big Four Weeks," our month-long celebration of all things Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax leading up to the Big Four show at Yankee Stadium on September 14.

For all the latest content from the Big Four, keep an eye on our special Big Four Weeks pages at GuitarWorld.com and RevolverMag.com.
