Watch Tool’s Adam Jones teach you to play “Pneuma” guitar riff

If you picked up playing the guitar while in quarantine, perhaps you might be ready to take on a riff from the mighty Tool.

Guitarist Adam Jones has shared a brief tutorial demonstrating how to play the last verse from “Pneuma,” a track off the long-awaited, recently released new Tool album, Fear Inoculum.

Alongside the Instagram video, Jones writes that the riff is “not difficult to play” — which feels like a very “that’s easy for you to say” situation — but adds that it’s “very satisfying.”

Fear Inoculum was released last August following a 13-year gap between albums. 

Meanwhile, drummer Danny Carey said last month that he’s “hoping” that Tool may be able to write new material, and possibly a new EP, amid quarantine.
