E A D G B E
"Redbone" by Childish Gambino
Tabbed by Kenneth Wesley and Vishnu Sriram

Enjoy!

Note: Fairly confident that this song is tuned at 432Hz in D# Minor, as opposed to the typical 440Hz.
Relative to 440Hz, this is about 32 cents flat in D# Minor.

I don't understand why you haven't put the chorus the same as the verse? What's with the random B#????????

Hey, just wondering if anyone knows how off the tuning is exactly? I'm currently trying to do a total bass cover for it and it really bothers me that whenever I try to write new parts it sounds slightly out :P
