Hold the Line - DOP, OPB, OPBk (UPDATED)


  • included two versions of this song (same key); the bass and drums are different enough to make it interesting. My choice? v2 (to my ears it just sounds cleaner and seems to have some kind of tension to it)
  • added count-in to both songs

  • Mod Standard Pro Bass drum set = NP Standard Pro Bass
  • Beta BeatBuddy Manager version 1.6b or newer
  • Firmware v1.8.5 (recommended) or newer

  • Hold_the_Line_v2.sng file (OPB = one press bass)
  • Hold_the_Line.sng file (OPB = one press bass)
  • Chords & Lyrics - Hold the Line
  • Midi source file: HoldTheLine v2.mid

Thanks for updating this song Persist… Always loved playing this one… Steve Lukather is a great guitar player, and under rated by many… :beers:
