Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything to the archive, and I
noticed this song wasn't there, so I'll give it my best shot.  As with
all Alice-in-Chains songs, you must tune down 1/2 step to play this
song.  Note:  I was too lazy to tune down 1/2 step, so parts of this
(especially Rhy. Fig. 2) aren't totally accurate, but the bass (root)
notes are definitely correct.  Here goes:

Rhy. Fig. 1

Gtr. II

Eb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|

The (8) is a ghost note.  As you're releasing the bend on the 10, lift
up your finger so that the 8 sounds.  In a way it's a VERY gentle
pull-off.  You can also pick it softly if you want, I guess.

Eb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|

The 232 thing is just a triplet, and I wanted to stick to the pattern of
two dashes per eighth note.

Now for the structure of the song:

Rhy. Fig. 1  4x
Rhy. Fig. 2  2x
Rhy. Fig. 1  2x
Rhy. Fig. 3  4x
Rhy. Fig. 4  4x
Rhy. Fig. 1  2x

That's the whole song.  No lyrics, of course.  I love posting
instrumentals.  :)  Comments, corrections, gifts, donations, etc. may by
