He said (as written by BLABBERMOUTH.NET: “I’ve always been fascinated by riffs, man. I think riffs are amazing; they’re magical. There’s something about it. Your personality comes through the riff – anger, despair, happiness; they all come through the riffs. And I love That’s why I ended up… It’s not the reason why to produce these two strings — long time ago, in Brazil — but when those strings came out of my guitar and I only had four strings. full rhythm riff is a four-string player more than ever. I still, to this day, most of my guitars have four strings on them.”

More than ten years ago, when those strings broke, my friend said, ‘Don’t replace them, you don’t use them anyway. You’re just going. spend money for nothing, save the money and buy beer.’ I was like, ‘Okay, okay,’ and I never took it back. Over the years, it’s been a trademark that I thought was cool. It’s something different about the way I do things. The guys who make guitars I work with, they must think I’m crazy when their bosses tell them not to put those two strings on. because I don’t use them. I just imagine… They’re saying, ‘What’s wrong with this man?’ [Laughs] I’m a total rhythm player…all I do is riffs. Working with so many guitarists, so many talented guitarists, inspires me not to lose any strings.”

[BLACK SABBATH guitarist] Tony Iommi… his style of playing … he leads as well, of course, but his riffs, the strong rhythm section that he helps create, is where I really emphasize my style, being a strong riff player. I can be. Instead of being a player who plays riffs and does a few leads, I say, ‘Fuck that!’ and just stay completely busy with the riffs. On an album, I try to play better, tighter, stuffier as much as possible, you know?”
