Alter Bridge - "New Way To Live"
from the "Blackbird" bonus tracks (sold at Best Buy)
Tabbed by jjhand, with help from hAkErShReD's guitar Pro version
tuning: Drop Db (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
 

I use about half of the Guitar Pro version, but fixed up some chords and rhythm. 
Also note to use some mild reverb in this song so the chords ring 
better. Please rate my tab so others will check it out too.

after the bend it goes, strumming isn't exact but you got the idea
