Hi everybody, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "Awake", as made famous by Godsmack. This is a powerful heavy rock/metal tune that features some bone-crushing riffing and a raging guitar solo.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about dropped tuning power chord shapes, octaves, and 16th note rhythm syncopations.

Tune your guitar down to dropped-C to play along with the song. We are in a 4/4 time signature at a tempo of 110 bpm.
