The Beautiful People Guitar Lesson – Marilyn Manson

In this guitar lesson video, I am going to show you how to play Marilyn Manson's biggest hit "The Beautiful People" note-for-note on the guitar.

You will need to tune your guitar to Dropped "D" tuning which will mean starting from the 6th string you will tune D A D G B E. That will then allow you to play all of those power chords with just one finger.

In this The Beautiful People guitar lesson, you will notice that almost everything revolves around the main riff or some sort of variation of it.

There is a lot of muted strumming being used throughout most of the song in order to fill out the sound a bit. I will demonstrate towards the beginning of the lesson how to get a nice and thick muted strum sound. After that, if you know the song well, you will know when and where that technique is being used.

After you learn the main riff, you will pretty much only have one more section to learn which is the pre-chorus. However, this pre-chorus uses only single notes playing a descending chromatic line and is extremely easy to play so nothing to worry about there.

One more thing before I go, there is a slight variation of the main riff played at the end of the song. At the end of the video lesson, I will show you how to play this variation as well.
