Song: Phobos
Artist: Emanuel
Album: Black Earth Tiger

Tabbed By: Alex Barrera

Email: albballer8@aol.com

Tuning: Full Step Down + Drop D (CGCFAD)

I cant quite make out the wah riff in the breakdown, so if you can help, contact me and 
will give you credit. And I cant be bothered to do that creepy sounding riff at the end. 
you can, don’t hesitate to share it with me.

And this song is yet to be tabbed, so…

Let’s go!

@16Under:

Yeah, I mention at the top of the tab that I couldn't figure it out at the time, and I've moved past it at this point, so if someone wants to help, they can help us out here.
