Cigarettes by King's X from the Dogman CD - 1993/4
Transcribed by Daniel S. Fisher (WetStone) in October 1995.
wetstone@compuserve.com
This song is great and it reminded me of "Pleiades" so why did I waste a
week of my time in Open G tuning when the song is actually in...

DROPPED D TUNING !!!???

I used Chordmaster Pro Plus to transcribe this file into playable *.AXE
format, and then printed it to a text file for this tab.

The equal signs after the numbers are indications of the length of each
note.  I added notations and lyrics to the printed tab file.

DROPPED D TUNING
Approximately BPM = 141
4/4 Time

INTRO (play measures 1 through 8 before first verse, but play only measures
       1 through 4 before the second verse, skip INTRO for the third verse)

(If you use your index and little fingers to slide up from 2&4 to 3&5 in
 measure 1, use your ring finger to play the "D" string, then what follows
 is self-evident. In measure 3, hammer on with your little finger while
 barring both D strings at the 3rd fret).

Try playing in dropDflat at the first position and see how much closer it sounds.
