Alter Bridge - Break Me Down
written by Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy
Drop Db tuning (all strings tuned down 1/2 step, 6th string down 1 1/2 steps)

It took me a little bit to figure out the chords because of the different overtones,
but this sounds right. I'm glad that I could TAB this one too for everyone.
