Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything to the archive, and I 
noticed this song wasn't there, so I'll give it my best shot.  As with 
all Alice-in-Chains songs, you must tune down 1/2 step to play this 
song.  Note:  I was too lazy to tune down 1/2 step, so parts of this 
(especially Rhy. Fig. 2) aren't totally accurate, but the bass (root) 
notes are definitely correct.  Here goes:

Rhy. Fig. 1

Gtr. I

Eb----------------|--------3------|---------------|3-------3------|
Bb----------------|----------3----|---------------|--3-------3----|
Gb-----0-----0---0|----0-------0--|----0-----0----|----0-------0--|
Db---0-----0------|--0------------|--0-----0------|---------------|
Ab----------------|---------------|------3-----6--|---------------|
Eb-6-----5-----4--|3-----3-------3|6--------------|------3-------3|

Gtr. II

Eb---B----slow rel|---------------|---------------|---------------|
Bb-10-(11)--------|(8)------------|---------------|---------------|
Gb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
Db----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
Ab----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
Eb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|

The (8) is a ghost note.  As you're releasing the bend on the 10, lift 
up your finger so that the 8 sounds.  In a way it's a VERY gentle 
pull-off.  You can also pick it softly if you want, I guess.

Rhy. Fig. 2
                                                            HP
Eb-----3-----3---3|----3-----3---3|----3-----3----|2-------232----|
Bb---3-----3------|--3-----3------|--3-----3------|3-----------3--|
Gb-0-----2-----2--|5-----4-----4--|5-----4-----5--|2-------------2|
Db----------------|---------------|---------------|0--------------|
Ab----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
Eb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|

The 232 thing is just a triplet, and I wanted to stick to the pattern of 
two dashes per eighth note.

Eb--/-\-----------| 1/2 ----------|sl ------------|
Bb-7-----5-----3--|-/-\----------7|/12------------|
Gb----------------|4-----2-0------|---------------|
Db----------------|---------------|---------------|
Ab----------------|---------------|---------------|
Eb----------------|---------------|---------------|

Now for the structure of the song:

Rhy. Fig. 1  4x
Rhy. Fig. 2  2x
Rhy. Fig. 1  2x
Rhy. Fig. 3  4x
Rhy. Fig. 4  4x
Rhy. Fig. 1  2x

That's the whole song.  No lyrics, of course.  I love posting 
instrumentals.  :)  Comments, corrections, gifts, donations, etc. may by
