Sugar Guitar Lesson Video – System Of A Down

In this Sugar guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this huge hit by System Of A Down note-for-note.

The tuning is drop 'C' tuning. That is, starting from the 6th string, you will tune each string down to C G C F A D.

The main riff and verse sections are pretty easy to play. However, for bridge/ending section, you are going to find quite a big rhythm guitar challenge.

That bridge riff incorporates constant slides into a very precise, heavily palm muted rhythm. Guitarist Daron Malakian slowly increases the tempo until it is played at breakneck speed. You will really want to be able to have the riff locked into your muscle memory before trying to speed it up that fast.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this metal classic! Carl...
