Alice in Chains - Grind
From the "Alice in Chains" Album - 1995
Bb 5-string bass tuning (see first line)
tabbed by jjhand

The bass riffs are simple & pretty repetitive in this song, 
but effective. Please rate/comment.

   "In your darkest hole, you'd be well advised

   What you may have heard and what you think you know, yeah"

And in truth your lies become one and same, yeah
I could set you free, rather hear the sound
Of your body breaking as I take you down, yeah"
