Song: Queen Of The Rodeo
Location: Chained To The Studio, Heroin, Working Class Heros

Transcriber: Matt Rouse [gravity@match.org]

Origin: This file originally came from "Alice In Chains: The Rarities"
        Check us out at: http://www.epalis.com/AliceInChains

Notes: This is a transcription of the studio version found only on
       various bootleg CDs.  The version included on Music Bank is
       live and doesn't feature the nice lead guitar.  I recently
       discovered that this song dates back to the glam days, before
       Jerry Cantrell was in the band.  I heard this performed on a
       concert tape from 1986!  I assume the lead guitar was something
       Jerry added to the song in the studio, as I've never heard this
       played live with two guitars.

       Gtr.1 is a brittle sounding six string electric with a chorus
       effect.  The struming pattern is pretty simple, but to
       get it right you'll need to listen to the song or the rhythm
       probably won't sound the same.

Woah wait...How could you have seen it in '86 when AIC formed in '87? And by the way, that link doesn't work.
