Alice in Chains - "God Am"
From the "Alice in Chains" 1995 Album
Eb tuning
tabbed by jjhand

I always liked this song's cool drum beat and it was interesting how the music 
paints a surreal conversation with God questioning tragedy in life.
The guitar riffs are well done here, so please rate or comment if you like.
