Alter Bridge - Blackbird
from the album "Blackbird"
Bass Tabbed by jjhand
Tuning: 5-string down 1/2 step (Bb Eb Ab Db Gb) 

This can be played on a B-tuned 5-string bass with a few adjustments. I 
tabbed it as tuned down to match the guitar parts.

Bass Enters when the clean guitars are about to change to a heavy riff
