Thread Name: Why the cigarette in the guitar?
Subject: RE: Why the cigarette in the guitar?
Some people do this because they need a handy place to park the cigarette, which they lit intending to smoke it but it's time to start the song now. I've done it, and it never crossed my mind that there was an effect to be achieved.

I've never noticed one impaled on a string. I have seen them stuck into the scroll on a Kyser capo. The most common way, though, is to wedge it between the bass E string and the neck.
