All Hope Is Gone  Alter Bridge

Alter Bridge - "All hope is Gone"
From the Album "AB III"
tuning - Bb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb
tabbed by jjhand
More heavy riffs from Tremonti's low-tuned axe. I suggest a 0.060 gauge
or so string for the low B to avoid excess slack. Please rate/comment!

Verse 1 - Main Riff Again
Lyrics:
"A tireless stream of indifference flows
through veins 'till the river runs dry
I no longer care, I have all but disposed
of dreams that I once held inside.
Desire is gone after all of these years
the fight has been lost, I concede.
The apathy born a long time ago
has grown to what I can't defeat"
Before Chorus Riff Change - () notes is Guitar 2
