Re: Forever Falling: AB's best work since Blackbird title track?

I'm really late to this thread. I see two topics being discussed: how Forever Falling is (not) the best Alter Bridge song since Blackbird, and how similar Isolation and Crows On A Wire are. There are quite a few songs that members of this forum hyped me up for, only for me to be disappointed after h...

Re: Alter Bridge/Creed/Mark Tremonti Tuning Master List

Any thoughts on which open tuning Myles used for In Stride? Sounds like a D Major tuning. Now I wouldn't know what exactly the strings are tuned to because I never play in open tunings, but I'm gonna guess D A D F# A D You are correct! Someone asked Myles on an instagram post and he replied! I saw ...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Double Post ...(forgive me) but in Honor of MOP’s 35th BDay. I’ve been listening to this one a lot lately and this live performance is beautiful! https://youtu.be/iL42fwM5muE Have you heard this? It's the same live performance, but somebody programmed symphony with it! https://youtu.be/ecbS_wgtOVA

Re: Performance Videos

As some followers of the Total Randomness Thread may know, I'm in the school musical production of You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown. When they held the callback auditions, I was one of the five chosen to audition for Snoop Dogg...I mean Snoopy. So I had to learn part of the song called "Snoopy&...

No, I mean, I HAVE A CHANCE. Anna and I are done with our week of ignoring each other completely. Feb 19 and Feb 24 at school, we didn't even acknowledge each other's existence. Then on Feb 25, she posted a story to her Instagram asking for song recommendations. I didn't want to pass up the opportun...

Re: *yeah, this thing

Realized this morning that I will have done what I do on every post* for (I think) 10 years this year. Kind of funny to think I've maintained a tradition that long but even crazier to think I've been on this board even longer. I think I joined right after Blackbird came out in October 2007 so that'...

Re: Performance Videos

So I've been going to this bar about 15 minutes from home to play at an Open Jam that they host every Thursday. I made video compilations of the first two times I was there, and I thought I might share it here.

Re: Alter Bridge - Live At The Royal Albert Hall

I don't know if this is the right thread for this post, but oh well. I periodically make playlists of my favorite songs that would sound good with symphony, complete with ideas on how the symphony would sound with the songs. Each time, it reflects my current taste in music. I'm right now working on ...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

It honestly blows me away that any of you guys still think Blackbird (the song) "isn't that good." I heard something the other day that vaguely reminded me of the opening to that song, so I told my wife I needed to play this song for her (she's not really that into AB, just hears a little...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

It's their signature song, the one that pretty much symbolises the real beginning of the band as a creative unit, and its theme digs deep with a ton of people. That said, I do prefer Fortress and a few others myself. It's an amazing song, but I can't really listen to it anymore because it brings up...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

I'm coming to this forum really late. I agree with people who say that The Last Hero and Walk The Sky were badly produced. I kinda wanna say the same thing about Blackbird, but it's a different kind of badly produced. One Day Remains has good sound, but it sounds like the guitars were double-tracked...

Re: Performance Videos

I thought I would finally post recordings of me playing Alter Bridge songs on here. Unfortunately there is no video, just audio. The first video starts with Watch Over You. It's rearranged for standard tuning, and then tuned down a half-step. I had trouble hitting the falsetto notes, but I managed t...

Re: Performance Videos

Your drumming is rather good. That's quite a nice varied set but someone always needs to be on that bass and the drums need to be louder :rockon Thanks! Unfortunately, since it's just the three of us, we can't always have somebody on bass. Also, I mixed this in the middle of the night using only th...

Re: *Promises to take a break...is back the next day*

What I take from this is: - Either she doesn't want to admit that she needs space, or she actually doesn't need space. Doesn't really matter which. - She clearly doesn't see me as boyfriend material. - She wants our "break" to me on my terms, which I don't like. She never did anything wro...
