I Alone  Live

Performed By: LIVE
From the Album: "Throwing Copper"
Lyrics Written By: Edward Kowalczyk
Music Written By: LIVE
Eb(D#) Tuning (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb) Low to High
(D# G# C# F# A# d#) Low to High
Notes:
There are a lot of tabs for this song, and it seemed like
no matter which version I played, it never sounded quite
right. I decided to have a go at tabbing this myself, and
I feel like my version is the more accurate of all.
For example, there are obviously ONLY POWERCHORDS played
throughout the song, I found that playing them gave the
song a "darker" sound and feel to it, which fits better
with the song, IMO. Also, whenever I listened to the song,
it never sounded to me like open chords were being played at all.
I think powerchords are more acceptable.
Also, using powerchords would make more sense, as the
b and high e strings are played open during the verse.
This is so obvious for one to detect, I can't believe
that nobody was able to tab it correctly.
Finally, the tabs for the bridge that I have seen have been incorrect;
not utilizing the chords that the notes are based around, etc.
I feel like the bridge that I have tabbed is close to, if not 100%.
ENJOY!
