Here's some (fairly) old Alice In Chains I transcribed. I first
did it just because I liked it, then my band started using it as a
warm-up song. Mentioning my band, i'd like to plug it here real
quick. :) The name's Fools Journey, we play kind of a heavy-
alternative type music. If you'd like a tape (or an upcoming
CD..) ... get in touch with me at jkcable@iastate.edu. Anyway,
hope you enjoy the tab!
