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---|
                                      ^                 ^
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/k/kings_x/black_flag_tab_ver_2.html ]
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!
