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. I

Eb----------------|--------3------|---------------|3-------3------|Bb----------------|----------3----|---------------|--3-------3----|Gb-----0-----0---0|----0-------0--|----0-----0----|----0-------0--|Db---0-----0------|--0------------|--0-----0------|---------------|Ab----------------|---------------|------3-----6--|---------------|Eb-6-----5-----4--|3-----3-------3|6--------------|------3-------3|
Gtr. II
Eb---B----slow rel|---------------|---------------|---------------|Bb-10-(11)--------|(8)------------|---------------|---------------|Gb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|Db----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|Ab----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|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.
Rhy. Fig. 2 HPEb-----3-----3---3|----3-----3---3|----3-----3----|2-------232----|Bb---3-----3------|--3-----3------|--3-----3------|3-----------3--|Gb-0-----2-----2--|5-----4-----4--|5-----4-----5--|2-------------2|Db----------------|---------------|---------------|0--------------|Ab----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|Eb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
The 232 thing is just a triplet, and I wanted to stick to the pattern of two dashes per eighth note. Rhy. Fig. 3 G |C |C |G

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 mailed to slash@mit.edu
