Song: "Stone"
Artist: Alice in Chains
Album: The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here (2013)
Bassist: Mike Inez
Tabbed by: Tydogg2443
Tuning: Drop Db (Db,Ab,Db,Gb / C#,G#,C#,F#)

*Updated 4/4/2014: Made some more minor alterations based on some live video footage.*

People are still speculating on whether the bend in the main riff starts from the 3rd
fret or the 4th fret. But I recently found a live performance video on YouTube that clearly
shows Mike Inez starting that bend at the 3rd fret as I'd originally suspected.
Here is a link to the video if you'd like to see for confirmation(skip to the 1:39 mark):

The video also confirms one of morgan.clement1's suggestions, which I've added to the tab.
Additionally, one tip I can offer about the main riff is that if you're having trouble for
one reason or another making the full-step bend to Ab from the 3rd fret, try it from the
4th fret. It would be technically incorrect in light of the recently uncovered evidence,
but it's a decent alternative if you're running into trouble with the full-semitone bend.*

I recently submitted the guitar pro version of this song. I originally had the same idea of the same riff as you did. However, after slowing down the song I found the main riff to be...

Db|-3b5r-2(2)2--0-1-2--0-2-|

The last note played is definitely the second fret rather than the first as we both originally thought. I also had the bridge wrong but it seems you got that right.

it sounds slightly wrong because on bass its played

Db|-4b5r-4(2)2--0-1-2--0-2-|
