Alice in Chains - "Brush Away"
From the "Alice in Chains" 1995 Album
Eb tuning
tabbed by jjhand

I noted the beats in the main Intro & verse parts to get timing right.
Ths song has nice layered guitar/bass rhythms that make a spooky heavy 
sound, and a eerie harmonized part in the solo. Please rate/comment.


Intro (Main Riff) - Rhythm Guitar 

play 4x clean, then add distortion for verse
  1     2      3     4    
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|----------0h6p0--------6-|
|----6------------6-------|
|-4-----4------------4----|
|-------------------------|



Verse - Lead Guitar 'Bend part', play along with Main riff

  1     2      3     4
|-------------------------| during the intro the first note fades in
|----------8b9r8~---------|  
|-(6)-------------------6-|
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------| 

Play Main riff 4x (4 bars) for each vocal line:

"I could use some time to curl away
 My aggression is where you stake your claim
 Why I question this curve on which you grade?
 My conception, a joke or latest craze?"



(0:43) Last time before chorus, Rhythm changes the last note 
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|----------0h6p0----------|
|----6------------6-----5-|
|-4-----4------------4----|
|-------------------------|




Chorus - play 2x

Rhythm with palm mutes throughout (lead bends continue)

|-0-2-2-3-3-------|---0---2---0----|-0-2-2-3-3-------|------------------|

                "I try to get away,               and yet I stick around"
                "So fall and crawl away,     and brush away loose ground"




Guitars Resume Main Riff & Bend Part


Verse 2 (only play Main Riff 6x this time):

"My intention, I arrive at eight?
Lie and dream some, surprise you guys I'm late.
All right, correction, forgetting something... wait"




Play Chorus Again


After Layne says "Yeah.....", play Main Riff & bends through solo part
