Alter Bridge - Coming Home
From "Blackbird" Album
tabbed by jjhand
Drop B tuning (B A D G B E)


I think this is closer to what Alter Bridge plays in Live Amsterdam footage.
Please rate or comment.

Your tuning is off. It's in drop b with all the strings tuned down a step and a half and the low e to b.

I play this with a standard tuned 7 string, so I know that the tuning is Drop B. If you compare this song to 'Come to Life', you'll notice the tunings are different

The way you have it written out is the same tuning as Broken Wings (or Come to Life up a step), which isn't correct. Correct tuning for this song is basiclly just drop D but with all strings down 1-1/2 steps (B,F#,B,e,g#,c#).
