Alice in Chains - Nothin' Song
From the album 'Alice in Chains' (1995)
Tuning: Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb
tabbed by jjhand

Thanks to AirForceMetalhe for his tab on UltimateGuitar.com, which 
gave me a starting point, since there's no youtube videos of AIC
playing this. I added the lead parts and it sounds good.
Please rate/comment.
