[Intro]
Cm
Downstroke to get the mood of the song. Keep strumming steadily,
as this should mesh well with the introduction to the song.

[Verse 1]
Cm, Cm/Eb, Cm/Db, Cm/G
Nice and steady on the Cm chord; it is being used with a nice steady strumming pattern.
Slide up to Cm/Eb and then further up to Cm/Db by moving your fingers up the neck.
Enjoy keeping the chords clean. Bring in Cm/G on the change by playing the bass note a little more.

[Pre-Chorus]
Cm, Cm/Bb, Cm/Eb
Strum Cm with a solid rhythm. Change to Cm/Bb, ensuring you hit the bass note.
Play Cm/Eb to create variation, before returning to Cm. Keep the strumming steady and rhythmical.

[Chorus]
Cm, Eb, Fm, C, Gm, Ab, Db
Start nice and steady on the Cm chord; it is being used with a nice, steady strumming pattern.
Keep strumming steady for a measure or so before changing to Eb with a down-up strum.
Resolve to Fm, ensuring it's a smooth transition right into C.
Strum with Gm, Ab, Db nice and clearly. Steady on rhythm, to keep it engaging.

[Verse 2]
Cm, Cm/Eb, Cm/Db, Cm/G
Similar to Verse 1, keep it on a nice, steady strum. Practice the change from
Cm to Cm/Eb, to Cm/Db, and then to Cm/G.

[Pre-Chorus]
Repeat the pre-chorus pattern from the first pre-chorus.

[Chorus]
Play the same strumming pattern as before, and the same order
of change as the first chorus.

[Post Chorus]
N.C.
Let the vocal ring out by not playing the guitar-strum to create a pause for an effect.

[Bridge]
Cm
Strum Cm aggressively to match the intensity of the lyrics.

[Breakdown]
Cm, Am
Strum the Am chord strong to make the mood sound urgent.
Move into Am smoothly, keeping the rhythm tight.
Keep up intensity through the breakdown.

[Chorus]
Bring back the chorus pattern, and focus on its accents that will bring out
the emotional weight in the phrase. Define the transitions
from Cm to Eb, Fm, C, Gm, Ab, and Db.

[Outro]
Chords: Cm, N.C
Finish the song with a fade out on the Cm chord with a slow strum.
End on N.C. and allow the song to finish on its own.

COMMON MISTAKES

Missed Chord Transitions, especially Cm/Eb and Cm/Db
Inconsistent with the strumming patterns
Not up with intensity during the bridge and breakdown
Song Facts:
"Kool-Aid" by Bring Me The Horizon is a song about disillusionment and critique
of the manipulated and controlling. The song lyrics comment on the possibility
of a rebellion against the norms of society and forces that are manipulating people.
Bring Me The Horizon was always quite a versatile act for obvious reasons,
given their retroactive association with metalcore and its infusion with both electronic
and pop elements. Founded in 2004, the band managed to pick up massive success
backed by an innovative approach to rock.

Artist Bio:
British rock act Bring Me The Horizon has always been a versatile act for large reasons,
going retrograde from their association with metalcore to its infusion with electronic
and pop elements. Their albums like Sempiternal and That's the Spirit did pick up some
commercial success. The versatility in their sound and the provoking
sound are a modern-day rock stable.
