  "Calm like a bomb! Ignite!"

For the solo, keep nailing away at the B note and I think the other note he uses is its perfect 7th. Just mess around with those 2 notes and you’ll get the idea.

Note: For the distortion, I think he uses an octave split which divides the single notes into one regular note and another an octave lower. That or it could be just "Y.tim.K’s" cool ass bass shit.

Email me if you have any comments.
