"I Stay Away" by Alice In Chains
From the album Jar of Flies

Tab transcription by Mark van 't Zet (tmvtzet@cs.vu.nl)



After finding the time and the capo I finally got to work on this
song. It looks like there's 3 guitars in this song:

Guitar 1 - a clean electric with a capo on the 5th fret
Guitar 2 - a distorted electric with dropped-D tuning (DADGBE)
Guitar 3 - just your average distorted guitar

It's possible to play the solo with the dropped D (just raise fretnumbers
on low E-string by 2) and the verse-chords with a finger-barre, but I can't
advise that.. Here goes..

Notation

XhY - hammer on
XpY - pull off
XbY - bend at fret X to pitch of fret Y
XrY - release bent note at pitch of fret X to pitch of fret Y
X~~ - vibrato
(X) - ghost note
X/Y X\Y - slides from X up/down to Y
(...) - hold previous note



INTRO/VERSE - Guitar 1, positions relative to capo on 5th fret
