"Now" by Staind
Johnny April uses a 5 sting bass but if you have a 4 string don't worry, it is easy
to play the octive on this song, all you have to do is every time that there is a
3rd fret on the 5th string, transfer it to 5th fret on the 3rd string and 2nd fret
on the 5th up to 4th on the 3rd. This song is pretty easy except the bridge and 
outro.
