Want to hear a new riff from Tool guitarist Adam Jones? The virtuosic axeman makes a habit of recording new riffs right after he's come up with them, and in this recently posted video, Jones shares a short piece of his creative mind.

Stay tuned to Loudwire for all your Tool news and album updates.
