Tabbed by: Sam Brown

Tuning: Drop D (D A D G B e)

Drenge are a class band.
I saw no tab for Bloodsports so I decided to write my own.
After listening to this song many times and extensive revisions of this tab,
I'm pretty sure it's near to perfect. Any alterations you think I should add,
use my email address above. Thanks.

For this next bit, have your thumb bent over the neck touching the bottom D string to mute the notes as you strum.
It doesn't matter if your strumming here is a bit sloppy, the open strings sound good with it.
(It's basically an E major shaped chord sliding up and down the fretboard)

Hey mate, I was wondering if you could do up a tab for "Nothing", if you could that would be swell. Peace.
