In this guitar lesson video, Daniel Mongrain will show off the intro riff in the Voivod song "We Are Connected." Mongrain will also explain how this riff was inspired by noises from an ATM machine. Lots of dotted eighth notes in this one. Crazy timing! Check out the lesson at PlayThisRiff.com.

Drummer Michel “Away” Langevin, who once again designed the artwork for Silver Machine (see above), checked in with the following update on the band’s current activities: “At this moment we are recording demos and writing the conclusion of the next album, while getting ready for the Wings of Metal Festival here in Montreal. Right after this show we will rehearse a couple of new set lists for the upcoming tour. We are really thrilled to go to Europe again this year, to play in some countries we never visited before. In November, after the tour, we will go to RadicArt studio to record the new material, at last...In the meantime, see you on the road!”
