The Best of Me
Brandon Trapp goes over a great pop punk song from The Starting Line called, “The Best of Me.” The Starting Line formed in ’99 in Churchville Pennsylvania, but they were originally called Sunday Drive. After signing their first major record deal in ’01, they discovered the name was already taken by another band. They eventually decided on The Starting Line, as it was the only thing they all could agree on. July of 2002 saw the release of their debut album, Say It Like You Mean It, which featured the single we’re learning today. The Starting Line decided to take a break in ’08, but came back together to play a reunion show in ’09. Since then, they have played a handful of random shows.

Brandon plays an Gibson USA Les Paul Standard in the lesson.
