Song: Queen Of The Rodeo

Location: Chained To The Studio, Heroin, Working Class Heros

Transcriber: Matt Rouse [gravity@match.org]

Origin: This file originally came from "Alice In Chains: The Rarities"

Notes: This is a transcription of the studio version found only on

various bootleg CDs. The version included on Music Bank is

live and doesn't feature the nice lead guitar. I recently

discovered that this song dates back to the glam days, before

Jerry Cantrell was in the band. I heard this performed on a

concert tape from 1986! I assume the lead guitar was something

Jerry added to the song in the studio, as I've never heard this

played live with two guitars.

Gtr.1 is a brittle sounding six string electric with a chorus

effect. The struming pattern is pretty simple, but to

get it right you'll need to listen to the song or the rhythm

probably won't sound the same.
