Bleed It Dry

  • Lyrics
  • Guitarist Mark Tremonti commented to I Heart Guitar Blog that his bluesy, bendy solo on this song is his favorite on Fortress. "That solo, I wanted to make it really expressive melodically," he said, "and really sing it in my head before playing it, and I used my fingers on a lot of it which made the tone a lot different to what I've done in the past. I think that's the main difference in the tone: using mainly my fingers on the first half of the solo."
