"No Joy, No Strength" James Hall
« on: June 22, 2007, 08:38:36 AM »
First of all, I do not recommend this song for anyone who can't run a bass line well.  Shoot, it was hard for me and I can run bass lines pretty decent.  Anyways, I didn't put in all the bass runs cuz it's too many to type out.  I just supplied u wit da main chords and bass lines.  Enjoy!!!
