Elliott Smith - Kings Crossing tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
When Elliott played this he put his capo on the 6th, that is because his guitar was
a whole step down. So if you do not normally play Elliott Smith songs and don't keep your
tuned down a whole step, capo it on the 4th. If you do play a lot of Elliott Smith and 
keep your guitar tuned down a whole step, capo at the 6th!
