                             WATERS RISING - Alter Bridge
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Scott Taylor
E-mail: sc_taylor@live.ca

Tuning: Drop C# / Db (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) *Note: AB plays this in Drop C live*


ATTENTION! This is Alter Bridge at their finest.  This song is absolutely amazing
in every aspect. I had no idea that Myles played the intro until I seen AB live. 
I had lots of fun tabbing this one out and I really hope you enjoy learning it.  
Follow the song for timing/structural changes. Post those Youtube cover videos!!!
