Title: B is for Brutus
Artists: The Hives
Album: Tyranasaurus Hives
Transcribed by: Erin Cox

This song is pretty crazy melodically and emploes some either well thought out
riff or a drug induced improvisation. Either way the songs pretty good and fun
to play! Thanks Nick Arson...

2 guitars, both in standard tuning (EADGBE), in the key of B Minor.
