HEROIN - Alice In Chains

It's in fact a demo for the song Real Thing.
Alright this is one of my first tabs, so i'm not 100% sure of it!

There is solo licks all over the song, some are tabbed here.
I think the scales are A pentatonic and E pentatonic, you can use wah and your whammy bar.

This song is pretty easy to play, exept for the kick ass solo licks ! :)
