                             Down To My Last - Alter Bridge
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tom H.

Tuning: Standard down ? step (low to high - Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb)


This is the general idea of what's going on in this song. The progression of
parts is pretty repetitive since almost the whole song is the same chord progression
(Ab, Eb, Db, Ab). I tabbed it the way I play it, but feel free to add or take away
extra notes however you want during each part. I added the high Ab and Eb (14th fret)
on top in the chorus to make it sound thicker than the verse, but you can play
around with each part and find which way sounds best to you.  Sorry no solo, I figured this
out on an old classical guitar so I don't have all the upper register notes needed.
