Alter Bridge - "Bleed it Dry"
From the album 'Fortress' (2013)
Bb Tuning (Eb standard with lowest string down to Bb)
tabbed by jjhand

This song has most riffs in 6/4 time and a 4/4 Chorus and ending. Nice 
sounding transitions, heavy riffs and a great bluesy solo in this one. 
Please rate/comment.

Lyrics:

Oceans rise, summits fall
Fading fast, it won't be long
Everything will be consumed, rendered lost
At the hands of fools tomorrow's gone
So say goodbye

(chorus)
Bleed it dry, leave us here with nothing
Justify all that you consume 
Bleed it dry, what is this becoming?
All your lies serve no one but you

Blood machines burn the skies
Turning day into night
Everything will fade to dust again, weak or strong
So don't pretend you've done no wrong
'cause you know that I'm right

Bleed it dry, leave us here with nothing
Justify all that you consume 
Bleed it dry, what is this becoming?
All your lies serve no one but you

One day you will see what you've done
The world you chose to bleed will be dead and gone

(Solo)

Bleed it dry, leave us here with nothing
Justify all that you consume 
Bleed it dry, what is this becoming?
All your lies serve no one but you

There are a few parts that seem slightly off.
I think the last part of the verse is this:

---------------- ---------------------
---------------- ---------------------
---------------- instead of this ---------------------
-5---5---5--4--- --5----5----5--2-----
-5---5---5--5--- --5----5----5--2-----
---------------- ---------------------

The chords during the intro/chorus sound a bit more full than what you have here.
That being said, this is a very solid foundation. Everything else sounds pretty damn good. :)

Whoever downvoted me, I hope it isn't because it's harder to play.
I'm 99.999999999% certain this is the way he plays it. Use your ****ing ears!
