Sugar, We're Goin Down
Trent Swartzentruber teaches you how to play “Sugar We’re Going Down,” by Fall Out Boy. In this lesson, you'll learn about drop-D tuning. The song was released in July of 2005, and debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at number 93. It eventually peaked at number 8, and managed to sell over 2.5 million copies, making it a certified double platinum. 
The accompanying music video for the song features Matt Lenski as a boy with antlers and chronicles the subsequent persecution and redemption that he receives with such a unique trait. 

Trent plays a Gibson Custom Les Paul R7 Goldtop in the lesson.
