One of the great things with Loudwire's Gear Factor is when artists go a little deeper in showing you how a song was constructed. Korpiklaani's Jonne Jarvela does exactly that, showcasing two songs from the recently released Jylhä album.
First up is the song "Miero," a track that needed some beefing up with some metal intros. But hearing it now, you might not realize it started on acoustic guitar. Jarvela breaks out his acoustic to show you the fingering patterns while letting his studio console provide you the full fledged metal version you hear on the album. "I think it is one of the best riffs of the new album," says the singer-songwriter.
