A spectacular in-concert solo from Zakk Wylde on “In This River. “ Although Wylde actually wrote the song before his close friend Pantera guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abott was murdered in 2004, Wylde began dedicating the song to him soon after and now plays it in tribute to Dimebag at every Black Label Society show.
Here Wylde combines incredible speed with lyrical lines and soulful bends for a powerful tribute, and even plays behind his head like Hendrix at one point.
Wylde is playing the custom Razorback split-tail guitar that Dimebag had Dean Guitars custom-make specifically for his friend shortly before Dimebag’s death. It features a razor inlaid into the fretboard and is signed on the back of the headstock by Dimebag himself.
