00:00 / 00:00
Tabs and lyrics
Tunning: Standard (E A D G B e)
"Man in the Box" by Alice in Chains
from "Facelift"; Track 2
Tuning: Drop-Db [Down 1/2 step, then drop-D (Db,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,eb)]

tabbed by alcor666@msn.com w/ help from friends
If you email me, then put 'guitar tab' as subject

I tabbed this out because the major chords G, D, and A are far too cheery
to be the chorus of this song. This is right, trust me.

[Intro]

D#|--2-x----2--2--x-x--2--x--2--2-x-x-|-5--7---------------------------|
