In this song tutorial we will be learning "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" as made famous by Good Charlotte. This song features two guitar players that play a variety of cool distorted guitar parts.

In this tutorial, we are going to use one guitar primarily to play all the main parts. In a few sections, you will hear some extra guitar parts and as an added bonus we are going to take a look at those as well.

The song is in the pop punk style, and to play it you need to tune your guitar to Dropped Db, tuned down a half step (Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, and Eb.)

To get the tones for this song you simply need a dual humbucker style guitar with lots of distortion. "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" is in the key of Db, played in 4/4 time and is at 106 bpm.

In these lessons I'll break down each section note for note. I will play through each part up to speed, break it down for you, and then play one last time slowed down so you can loop it in the video player and really see and hear each section. Let's get started!
