This song is a pretty straight forward arrangement, starting with an intro and a verse with a cool flange sound on the rhythm guitar.

The choruses are huge and have big chords stacked on top of each other, so we're gonna look into how you can get that huge "wall of guitars" sound.

There's lots of dynamic changes and guitar parts that go in and out, and there are some really cool rhythm phrases and riffs all over this song, plus there's a lead guitar playing some cool licks in the verses and a really great solo based on the pentatonic scale.

We're also gonna check out my favorite bit of the song which is a rhythm phrase where the different guitars are all playing slightly different things to create a really cool rhythmic pattern.

We'll be in standard tuning today playing in the key of D. If you have a hard time paying along with the original song in this tuning it's because the original is tuned right between Db and D, it's about 1/4 step down from D. But today we won't have to worry about that, we'll be in Db along with our backing track.
