Show Me a Sign  Alter Bridge

Alter Bridge - "Show Me A Sign"
From "AB III"
Tuning: Drop Db (Half-Step down)
Tabbed by jjhand
Edited by LURKINGRAIDARS
"Show Me A Sign," is the song in the ABIII album that plays like a concept
record whose main character is someone desperately struggling to find their
place in a world steeped in doubt and emptiness. It's the band's favorite.
