Mike will show you the single electric guitar layer in this tune that uses a modern high gain tone to play power chords throughout.

The song opens with a drum groove and sampled vocals, then the band explodes in with a massive groove and power chord riffs from the guitar. The verse is lower dynamic with sparse guitar strums, but gets back to high energy riffing in the chorus and reintro sections.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about power chords and aggressive syncopated strumming. We are in the key of B minor, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 143 BPM.
