Soulfly guitarist reveals practice tips
Marc Rizzo, electric guitar player in metal band Soulfly, has revealed how his practice regime works.
As well as being a rock star in a metal band, Rizzo is in the process of releasing his third solo record, which is an instrumental guitar piece taking inspiration from rock, blues and Brazilian music.
Speaking to Guitar International, Rizzo said that the secret to his success was a work ethic that made him feel guilty for not practising each day, even during tours.
Explaining his practice regime, he said: "As soon as I get the guitar in my hands I run through all my scales and arpeggios to a metronome, then try and speed it up to a good click.
"That takes about an hour to an hour and a half."
He added that he then runs through backing tracks before venturing on to YouTube to work through lessons given by his favourite guitar players.
Last week, session guitarist Tommy Emmanuel, told ChicoER.com that people hoping to improve their skills on the instrument should record their practice sessions so it is easier to hear what needs to be worked on.
