Alter Bridge - Home
Extra Track from 'ABIII'
tuning - Standard down 3 frets (C# F# B E G# C#)
tabbed by jjhand

This track has a great acoustic line that catches you off guard with the
off-beat rhythms & droning notes. The lead guitar work was also great,
making this one of the best tracks on ABIII (not sure why its a bonus track)
Please Rate or Comment.
