                             Alter Bridge - Blackbird
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Abbas A. Rahman
Band: The Unforgiven Theorem/ Made in the Shade.

Comments: This 4 string version is for those who do not have a 5 string bass. 
Brian Marshall did this song with a 5 string bass. So gotta improvise.
