My Curse
Nashville guitarist Trent Swartzentruber will teach you how to play “My Curse” by Killswitch Engage. This song was the band's first single off their fourth album, Daylight Dies, and it ended up hitting number 21 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in 2006.
This album is actually the second studio album featuring Howard Jones on lead vocals. The band had two albums before with Jesse Leach on vocals. The split came in 2002 after Leach had been experiencing depression. He sent the band an email a few days before a show they were scheduled to play telling him that he had to quit. They definitely took it hard, but ended up recruiting Jones, who sang for the band, Blood Has Been Shed.

Trent plays an Epiphone Zakk Wylde ZV Custom in the lesson.
