Schism by Tool

Difficulty: Intermediate

Tool’s greatest breakthrough was to introduce dark, vaguely underground metal

James Keenan is also the voice behind A Perfect Circle, now with former Smashing
Pumpkins member James Iha on lead guitar.

For this riff, you will be working with a few hammer-ons with both the guitar
and the bass.


Here is what the riff sounds like with both guitar and bass:
