The New Black
Trent Swartzentruber, Instructor for Guitar Apprentice, teaches you how to play a pretty hardcore song by Every Time I Die. "The New Black" is off the band's third record, Gutter Phenomenon, in 2005. The album reached #10 on Billboard Top Independent Albums.

The band is highly known for their unique sound, sarcastic lyrics, and high—energy live shows. In this lesson, you will want to capture that energy when playing the song. Trent will help you learn the parts and how to play it with the right attitude.

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