“There’s more to life than just existing – it’s doing what you love,” explains Counterparts vocalist Brendan Murphy on what his band’s song “The Constant” means to him, continuing on to say, “I wrote this one after an argument with somebody about how being in a band is not a real job.”

“The Constant” comes off of the band’s newly released album, “The Current Will Carry Us.” Learn how to play “The Constant” by Counterparts in the guitar demo video below.
