D# A# C F C F

This is a great tuning for the song “Would?” by Alice in Chains but this is not the tuning they used.
It makes me sad that Layne is no longer with us. Too young.
Here are all the scale notes, numbers, scale degrees and intervals of the entire G# Bebop Dominant scale in Open F 7sus tuning:
