This song has 1 guitar layer tuned to dropped D that transitions from a lower dynamic clean sound all the way to full out high gain crunch. It’s a lengthy song with an arrangement that takes its time in building each section from quiet, atmospheric passages to full out syncopated riffing.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about dropped D tuning, odd time signatures, dynamics, syncopated riffing, and some atmospheric clean and lead guitar approaches.

We are in the key of D minor, with various time signatures, at a tempo of 112 and 87 BPM.
