THE KILLER IS ME
ALICE IN CHAINS

Alright. I really like the weird feel to this song. It's kind
of.... you know.... weird.

Anyway, i've spent a pretty long time figuring out the little
details in this song. But still, there some parts i'm not sure
of.
Here's my version.

like for most AIC songs, guitars must be tuned 1/2 step down.


Main Riff.
     A             ????
e:---0---0--0-0-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0------
B:---2---2--2-2-2--6--6-6-6-6-6-6-6------
G:---2---2--2-2-2--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0------ 
D:---2---2--2-2-2--5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5------
A:---0---0--0-0-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0------
E:---------------------------------------

After a couple of times, when the band comes in, the second
guitar plays something like this...
    A
e:------0-------------------------(12)---  (), represents
B:-----------2----------------(12)-------     harmonics
G:----2----2---2----------(12)-----------
D:--2-----------------(12)---------------
A:---------------------------------------
E:---------------------------------------

         Or something like this...
    A
e:---------0-----------------------(12)-- 
B:-------------2---------------(12)------  
G:----2------2---2---------(12)----------  
D:--2---2--------------(12)--------------
A:---------------------------------------
E:---------------------------------------

I'm not too sure about these parts. I think he improvises most
of the time.
But it's close enough.



Chorus


Guitar 1:
    E                           F#
e:--0-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0---2-2--2-2-2-2---
B:--0-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0---2-2--2-2-2-2---
G:--1-1--1--1-1-1--1-1-1--1-1---3-3--3-3-3-3--- the rythm
D:--2-2--2--2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2---4-4--4-4-4-4--- here is way
A:--2-2--2--2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2---4-4--4-4-4-4--- off...
E:--0-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0---2-2--2-2-2-2---
   yeah           i'll start    over 

and then...
                Fmaj7
e:--------------0----
B:--------------1----
G:--------------2----
D:--------------3----
A:--------------0----
E:-------------------
       and get  over it....   



Guitar 2:
    E                                       F# 
e:-----------------------------------------------------------
B:-----------------------------------------------------------
G:-----------1--------------------1------------------3-------
D:------2------2---2---------2------2---2-------4------4---4-
A:----2---2------2---------2---2------2-------4---4------4---
E:--0--------------------0------------------2----------------
   yeah                           I start   over


e:---------------------------------------------
B:---------------------------------------------
G:---------------3-------------------1---------
D:------4---4------4---4--------2------2---2---
A:----4---4---4------4--------2---2------2-----
E:--2-----------------------0------------------
                            yeah


e:-------------------------------------0---------
B:-------------------------------------1---------
G:--------------1----------------------2---------
D:-----2---2------2---2-----4----------3---------
A:---2---2---2------2-----4----4-------0---------
E:-0--------------------2---------2--------------
               I start  over  and get  over it... 



Verse 2:
Same as the first.

Chorus 2:
Same as the first, except that guitar 2 starts like this:
    E
e:------------------------------------------
B:------------------------------------------
G:-----------1---------------------1--------
D:------2------2---2------2---2------2---2--
A:----2---2------2------2---2---2------2----
E:--0-----------------0---------------------


Then play the main riff a couple of times and that's it !


LYRICS
Don't need a gun, pointed at me
Don't need to run, killer is me
Killer is me

So the sun, shines upon me
Havin fun, killer is me
Insane the mind, in the name of me
Can't find the time, to let things be
Insane the mind, in the name of me
Can't find the time, to let things be
Let things be

Oh yeah, can i start over ?
Oh yeah, can i start over ?
And get over it

So the sun, shines upon me
Having fun, killer is me
killer is me
Killer is me

Oh yeah, can i start over ?
Oh yeah, can i start over ?
And get over it

Let things be



	OK, so this is how close i can get to the real thing...
If somebody has a better way of playing it, please post it.
Send me all corrections, i'll be glad to recieve them.

This tab is more than completely wrong, watch them unplugged & anybody can see for themselves. I'm not baggin on you for it cuz i can't play by ear but this song i can play note for note & unfortunately it is very wrong.
