                             Sex On Fire - Kings Of Leon
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I feel like the other tab is okay but far from perfect.
This is complete enough for at least one guitar to play straight through,
and I'm 100% sure it's right. Hope this helps!

I would change the chorus to this, I watched a live performance and it seems right.

Chorus:
e|-0-0-0-0-------------------11--11--11--11--------------------|

There's a low E string played in the intro, its just very quiet and there's a slide from 16 to 14 and 12 to 11

e|-------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|--16/14-14-14--x4----12/11-11-11--x4-|
E|-0--0--0--0---------9--9--9--9-------|
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

But you can get away without playing it, will sound the same to a drunk audience :)

You're also missing the lead part that's played during the intro and in some of the verse, something like

e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|-13--13--13--13--13--13--13--9--|
D|-14--14--14--14--14--14--14--9--|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|
