			     King of the World - Steely Dan
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kent

I don't know where they get their guitarists, but whoever they got for this album, made this song:

Intro: quiet wah type thing

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-/7-7------/7-7---7-----/7-7------/7-7---7---------------------------------|
E|------8-10------8------------8-10------8-----------------------------------|

when the bass chords kick in, you pick it up a little:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-/7-7-----/7-7------/7-7------/7-x-7-x-7-----------------------------------|
E|------8-10-----8-10------8-10----------------------------------------------|
repeat


main part fades in (with reverb or something). this is played throughout the verses:
strum the chords
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-5--5-7-7-9--9--9h11-------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-5--5-7-7-9--9--9--trill-around-with-that-hammer-on-maybe------------------------|
D|-5--5-7-7-9--9--9h12-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---7---9---11--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

hit a bunch of high e's on the 12th fret after "old ham radio"

I plagiarized the bridge from some one else's tab:
"
[Bm7]No marigolds in the promised [CMaj7] land,
[C]There's a hole in the [G] ground where they[D]used to grow
[Bm7]Any man left on the[CMaj7] Rio Grande
[Em7]Is the[D]king of the world as far as[A]I know
"
I think I prefer D/F# instead of Bm7 here, not that it really matters much

little fills:
e|--------------------------------------------12-16------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------12-13-------------------------|
G|---------7-7/9------10-9-7-9------------------------------some-crazy-----------|
D|---9h10p9-------------------10-5/7--------------------------arpeggio-rip-------|
A|--7----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-8-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       1:14                                          1:21                                
     1:29                           1:35

bridge again

sick organ riff:
E|-------10--14-10--12-------10----12-10--------13--------11/13---|
B|--12-10--12-----12----12-10--8-10-----13p12-11--11p10-9---------|
G|-9--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

E|-11/13---------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

this is all ripped off from the same tab (almost exactly):
"
