"Rooster," by Alice in Chains (written by Jerry Cantrell)
Tablature approximated to best of ability by Rob Goggins
(rob@praline.nrlssc.navy.mil)

There are two hard parts of this song. The first is to get the right 
tuning--it's what I call the "drop F#" tuning--lower the G string 1/2
step to an F#. Whew, that was easy. The other hard part is notated later.

In addition, Alice in Chains detunes everything by 1/2 step, so the 
actual tuning is (low freq to hi freq) Eb, Ab, Db, F, Bb, Eb. But I'm
going to pretend were using E, A, D, F#, B, E.  Here goes....


intro, verse:

F#5 A5~Asus2Eb-> E 02-0----5--0--0-Bb-> B 02-0----5--0--0-F--> F# 00-0----7--3--3- repeat for duration of intro, 2 versesDb-> D 44-4----7--2--2- (Ain't found a way....leads me to nowhere)Ab-> A 44-4----0--0--0-Eb-> E 02-0----|-------
pre-chorus:

| ******************************************** *This is the hardest part of the song... * *the guitar plays nothing here, even though* *you ache to crunch out an Asus2! * ******************************************** Come out into another pre-chorus, chorus, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, and then outro. Don't step on any mines while playing (even though it'd be COOL!). enjoy <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> <<< Don't worry--you can play major thirds & still go to hell. >>> <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Rob Goggins rob@praline.nrlssc.navy.mil From: WLarmore@aol.com Date: Sun, 11 Aug 1996 12:13:25 -0400 Here is the correct way to play this excellent song. The other version is terribly wrong. You don't need any crazy alternate tunings besides the usual 1/2 step down. Okay, here is the CORRECT way to play Rooster by Alice in Chains: (As always, tune down 1/2 step!) Intro: = Guitar 1 (clean w/ chorus) = F# F#7add4 A Aadd2
