Don't Follow
Jerry Cantrell

Alice in Chains
Jar of Flies
My brother bought this album years ago, and it's really good.
This song was my fave off it, but I never thought it was acoustic
until I listened to it about 4 days ago.  So here it is.  I used
to play it so I was kinda familiar with the tab already.  Enjoy!
