CIGARETTES by King's X from the Dogman CD - 1993/4          

Uploaded with permission of ty tabor of KING'S X...  THANKS ty!

Transcribed by Daniel S. Fisher (WetStone) in October 1995.

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.  A shareware
version of Chordmaster is in the MIDI/MUSIC forum (GO MIDIFORUM).  The axe
file is in the KING'S X fanclub library along with the midi file I created
using the same program... enough free advertising.

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).
