In this tutorial we're going to teach you how to play the guitar parts heard in "The Anthem" as made famous by Good Charlotte. This track combines pop songwriting, punk rock style energy, and a hip hop style groove to make a track that is equally fun to play and sing a long with.

There are two guitarists in the band and you will hear tons of great examples of how two guitarists can play together to make one huge, energetic sound. We will play this track with our guitar strings tuned down a whole step to Eb, making our strings Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, and Eb. Played in the key of Eb and with a tempo of 177bpm in 4/4 time, this track features something for everyone. Using a variety of palm muting techniques, octave slides and loads of distortion.
