    This is a cool song. The bass line is super easy, but catchy and serves the song well. Palm mute with a pic to get the right attack and tone.

  2. Awesome. Still have yet to receive my CD from Amazon, but I will be playing this as soon as it comes.

    From what I understand its all Bruno on guitar, bass and drums in the writing and recording. Pretty cool.

    Bruno is like a cross between prince and a normal human. Super talented. I'm a metal guy but his tunes are irresistible.
