Yvette Young & Mark Holcomb Teach Each Other Riffs
Cool re-post from Reverb.com (Check out our storefront on Reverb)…
With her band Covet, Yvette Young crafts spidery, finger-tapped riffs that are as much a product of her math rock prowess as they are emo heart. And as a guitarist for progressive metal pioneers Periphery, Mark Holcomb brings technicality and sheer shred-ability to pummeling yet melodic heights.
Today, Yvette and Mark take part in a meeting of the prog-metal and prog-emo minds. Swapping riffs, teaching each other licks, and playing together in the Reverb studio, the two guitarists have a frank conversation, fretboard to fretboard.
Watch the full video above to learn some of their hard-picked wisdom. Then, check out our previous feature with Yvette on “Creating Songs with Guitar Tapping and Open Tunings” and Mark’s lessons for Periphery’s “Marigold,” “The Way the News Goes…,” and more.
