About this tab version
Full guitar version from Myles' live parts. Mark may be tune to Drop B but I put this all in the same tuning. Please rate or comment. Was this info helpful? Yes No
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.

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.

jjhand 19,283 Nov 04, 2007 05:49 PM

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#).
