Alter Bridge - 'Rise Today' Bass part
From 'Blackbird' EP
tabbed by jjhand

I saw many requests for this so I figured it out. Let me know what you think!

5-string bass, normal tuning (or tune a normal bass to BEAD)


First line of lyrics of verse 1 is just guitar.
Second line, "Feels like we're all alone ..." is when bass comes in

 Verse 1:
            s                                          s

The tab looks pretty accurate. My one issue is with the formatting: if you have to clarify what number you have on the tab lines, then your formatting needs improving. It just requires adding dashes in between the numbers to make it clear what you're supposed to play. Makes a world if difference.

Still, great job figuring out the song! Formatting issues aside, thank you!
