How does one craft a riff or a lead? The process may be different depending on which musician you talk to, but during this edition of Loudwire's Gear Factor, Halestorm's Lzzy Hale reveals that her vocals play a key role in how her guitar parts sound.
In the midst of a discussion on her favorite riffs, Hale brought up "I Miss the Misery" and how it was a key turning point for her creatively. "What I love about ‘I Miss the Misery’ is that we decided to do just kind of a melodic riff on top of that that just went with my vocals. This was when I was discovering that I could sing and play at the same time. You learn you can harmonize with yourself and there was a lightbulb that happened in my mind," says Hale.
