Watch Deafheaven’s Kerry McCoy Demonstrate His Guitar Techniques For Matt Sweeney

Deafheaven guitarist Kerry McCoy sat down with Matt Sweeney on the latest episode of Guitar Power, a continuation of the guitar-focused web series that Sweeney began last year. They talk about their own playing styles, the forced genre labels that have plagued Deafheaven since they started, and different elements that show up a lot in black metal and shoegaze music. McCoy even plays a riff he’s working on for the band’s forthcoming third album, plus revisits one of his earliest riffs from a band that he was in when he was 13. Watch below.
