Alter Bridge - "Broken Wings"
From "One Day Remains"
Tuning- 5 string down 1/2 step
tabbed by jjhand

I thought you guys deserved an accurate version of Broken Wings. Brian
started playing 5-string basses when Alter Bridge did the 'One Day Remains' 
sessions and he really harmonizes well with Mark's chords in this one.
