Kasabian – Empire tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     EMPIRE - As Cities Burn
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Micah Jayne

Tuning: Drop C#

As Cities Burn - Empire
From the album "Come Now Sleep"

The song is in drop C# tuning, which is everything tuned a half step down from drop D.
I may also make a Guitar Pro tab for this. Let me know if you would like me to.
Please email me any comments or corrections!

Enjoy!
