                        Alice In Chains-Phantom Limb
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jaytee805
E-mail: jaytee805@gmail.com

Tuning: Half-step down

Intro starts off like this:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------10--------------9---9-8--------10------------9--9-8---------------|
E|---0-0-0----0-0-0-0-0-0---0-------0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0--0-------------------|

It continues on that part for a while, and once the full band kicks in, these notes are 
played over the main riff:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---7~-----------13~-----------7~-----------13~-----------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The verse continues on the main riff with the notes on the E string muted. After the 
verse, it hits this pre-chorusy sort of part; like this:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------6-----5-----4-----9-6--------6-----5-----4-----9-6----------------|
A|---------6-----5-----4-----9-6--------6-----5-----4-----9-6----------------|
E|---4-4-4---4-4---4-4---4-4-7-4--4-4-4---4-4---4-4---4-4-7-4----------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------6-----5-----4-----9-6--------5-----4-----3-----8-5----------------|
A|---------6-----5-----4-----9-6--------5-----4-----3-----8-5----------------|
E|---4-4-4---4-4---4-4---4-4-7-4--3-3-3---3-3---3-3---3-3-6-3----------------|

Then it goes back to the second verse. After that, it comes back into the pre-chorus 
part. Then the chorus:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---7-7^8-----------------------7-7^8---------------------------------------|
D|---7-7^8-8--7--2-5--7--2-------7-7^8-8--7--2-5--7--2-----------------------|
A|---5-5^6-8--7--2-5--7--2-------5-5^6-8--7--2-5--7--2-----------------------|
E|---------6--5--0-3--5--0-------------6--5--0-3--5--0-----------------------|

Then, at around 2:56, it goes to this bridge-like part:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---5--4--------------------------5--4--------------------------------------|
D|---5--4---5--4----2~-------------5--4---5--4----2~-------------------------|
A|---3--2---5--4----2~-------------3--2---5--4----2~-------------------------|
E|----------3--2----0~--------------------3--2----0~-------------------------|

After that cool jam, it goes back into the main riff, which is played throughout the 
solo. The solo is just like this:
e|---15----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---18^20~~~~^18-15-12-15^17-15^17--15-12-----------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------14^16-12------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------15-14^15^14^15^14-12----12--14^16-12--------------|
G|---------12-14-14^16-12-----------------------14---------------14-12-------|
D|---12-14--------------------------------------------------------------12-10|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------17~~----|
G|---12~~--12-------12----------12--12^13-----------------12-14^16~~---------|
D|------------11-------11----11---------------------12-14--------------------|
A|---------------10-------10---------------12-13-14--------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---15-12-15----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------14-15-12-10----------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------12-14-14^16^14-12-------12^14^12-------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------14-12---------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------17-19-19^21~~~---------------------------|
B|--------------------12-15-17--15-------------------------------------------|
G|----------12-12h14---------------------------------------------------------|
D|---12h14-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After the solo, it goes back into the verse. The pre-chorus follows the verse. Then to 
the chorus again. After the chorus, it goes back to the cool bridge/breakdown part. Then 
the song fades out and ends.

I think the 'pre-chorus sort of part' sounds more like this:

e|---------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------6-5--|---------------------------6-5-----------|
A|---------------5------------6-5--|--------------5------------6-5-----------|
E|---4-4-4-7-4-4---4-4-7-4-4--4-3--|--4-4-4-7-4-4---4-4-7-4-4--4-3-----------|
pm... ... ... ... ..... ... ... ...

e|---------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------7-6-----------|
D|----------------------------6-5--|---------------------------7-6-----------|
A|---------------5------------6-5--|--------------5------------5-4-----------|
E|---4-4-4-7-4-4---4-4-7-4-4--4-3--|--3-3-3-7-3-3---3-3-7-3-3----------------|
What do you think?

I watched them play it live on a video on youtube and as far as I can tell from looking at William's fingers (the guy who wrote the song) it goes something like this... I have a powertab at home, but I can't get the solo to sound right. And I don't want to submit a shitty tab.

A|---------2---5---2---5-4|-----2---5---2---5-4|
E|---4-4-4---4---4---4----|---3---3---3---3----|
