Alter Bridge - "All Ends Well"
From the album 'Fortress' (2013)
Drop D Tuning, down 1 fret

This song has one of Mark's difficult finger picking parts but is a
very warm uplifting song with nice dual guitar harmony throughout.
Please rate or comment.


Intro/Verse Part 1 - played 2x

Note that B and G strings are quarters and the lower string plays triplets throughout. Takes a little practice! Verse Part 1 now repeats with Guitar 2 adding:
