Title: Show Me A Leader
Artist: Alter Bridge
Album: The Last Hero (2016)
Author: jjhand
Tuning - Guitar 1 - Eb Standard
         Guitar 2 - 7 string Ab Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb 

Mark Tremonti shows off his new PRS 7 string for this music video so I arranged 
one part for 7 string. The song has some great leads, rhythm syncopation and a 
captivating intro. Please rate and comment.
