	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!
