black flag

Year: 1992 - Album: King's X

	  		Black Flag 
 
Due to the helpful advice of one of the readers on this Newsgroup, I have 
	figured out what I HOPE to be the correct way to play "Black Flag" 
	by King's X.  Note the "E" is tuned down to "D" (helpful advice). 
 
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
D|--------3---3--------0--------3---3--------0-0x-3x-1x-0---3---3--------0-| 
A|--------3---2--------0--------3---2--------0-0x-3x-1x-0---3---2--------0-| 
D|-0-3/-0-3-0---0-3/-0---0-3/-0-3-0---0-3/-0---0x-3x-1x-0-0-3-0---0-3/-0---| 
                                      ^                 ^   
 
E|-----------------||  This is for the beginning of the song and the refrain. 
B|-----------------||  What follows is the variation used for the lyrical 
G|---------0-----0-||  section of the song.  Refer to the "^"'s above. 
D|-------0-----0---||  G|-------0----------|| 
A|-----------------||  D|-----0---0--------|| 
D|-0-2-3-----1-----||  A|------------------|| 
                       D|-0-3-------0-1~-0-|| 
                          ^              ^ 
 
...and now, the tab for the lead-in to the refrain. 
 
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|| 
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|| 
G|-2-------------2---------------------------------------2-------|| 
D|-2-3-3---3/5-5-2-3-3--------0---12-11-10-8-3-3---3/5-5-2-------|| 
A|-0-3-3---3/5-5-0-3-3--------0---12-11-10-8-3-3---3/5-5-0-------|| 
D|---3-3-0-3/5-5---3-3-0-3/-0---0-12-11-10-8-3-3-0-3/5-5---0-3-1-|| 
 
...and finally, the tab for the "It's... what's up... with ME..." part... 
 
E|-------------------------------------------|| 
B|-------------------------------------------|| 
G|------------0-----0-2----------------------|| 
D|-0-3-5----0-----0---2-0x-3x-0x-2x-1x-0-3-5-|| 
A|-0-3-5--------------0-0x-3x-0x-2x-1x-0-3-5-|| 
D|-0-3-5--2-----3-------0x-3x-0x-2x-1x-0-3-5-|| 
 
I hope that this is right, and that my new TAB notation is legible.  I think 
	that it's a good system, because it allows for tuned-down or -up 
	strings, bends, and other things.  Let me know what you think.

P.S.- If you know King's X, a heavy, wooden, bass-laden guitar sound should 
	sound best with this song.  Bon guitar-age!
