Band: Alter Bridge
Song: Buried Alive
CD:   Blackbird
Year: 2007
Tune: Drop C# (Db)

(Taken from the guitar pro file, I take no credit for this.
There are two guitars in this song, the second mainly following
the first other than in the intro and part of the bridge. I
tried my best to keep this tab in order and easily to follow
Updated Oct 17th to fix intro and a few other riffs)

Very cool to see the new album tabbed out so early and accurate. Very nice. 5 stars *****

Hey nice work on the tab, Just a small technicality, I just think that the intro is a little different the way Tremonti plays it. I think rather than what you have posted, it should be something like

F# - 0 0
C# - 5 5 5 5
G# - 3
C# - 3

It sounds a little more like the track. Just a thought if you listen carefully. The rest of it looks great, nice work.
