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

Gb-----0-----0---0|----0-------0--|----0-----0----|----0-------0--|

Gtr. II

Bb-10-(11)--------|(8)------------|---------------|---------------|

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.

Db----------------|---------------|---------------|0--------------|

Eb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|

The 232 thing is just a triplet, and I wanted to stick to the pattern of

two dashes per eighth note.
