                             BLACK GOLD - Foals
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: billyhunter
Email: billyboy100@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard


This is probably my favouritre track from my favourite band, I was surprised to find 
that it hadn't been tabbed and/or submitted yet.


Intro/Verse: (0:00/0:22)

This album features a lot of loops, this is one that is repeated throughout the intro 
and both verses

e|--------12+-------12+-------12+-------12+----------------------------------|
B|--------12+-------12+-------12+-------12+-------7+------7+------7+------7+-|
G|------------------------------------------------7+------7+------7+------7+-|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 1: Jimmy
(Slightly palm-muted)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------| (repeat)
A|---9--------7--------5----------------------------5----5s7----7s9----------|
E|-7--------5--------3----------------------------3----3------5--------------|

Towards the end of the first (0:44), this variable is played

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---7-----------------------------------------------4-----------------------|
A|-9----------7--------5----------------------------------7-----7s9----------|
E|----------5--------3-----------------------------3----5----5---------------|

Guitar 2: Yannis

e|-----1919191919-17---------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------19-------------17---------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------19------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Throughout the verses, Yannis plays a few random little parts using the same notes, 
otherwise he's playing the looped part at the top of this tab.
He also plays something similar to these (have a listen and see what you can make out of 
his parts in the verses)

e|-----19--17--------------------------------------------------12+-----------|

Guitar 2: Yannis

This part variates slightly, listen to the track to hear where and what they are.
They basially follow this:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----16--16--16--16--16--16--16--16--16--16--16--16------16--16--14--14-----|

Break: (3:11)

Guitar 1: Jimmy

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


When Jimmy moves onto this part, yannis stops and builds up the end of the break with 
the beginning of his tremolo part
                       vv

e|----------7-------------------5------------------------------------------------|

to 7 just before the break reaches its peak)
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

In the final section, Yannis' part varies between these:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|555555555555555555555555577777777775555555555555555555555555555444444444444|

A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


This track has a lot of loops, which makes it hard to pick out where either guitarist 
has moved onto. This part I'm not so sure about, please comment any corrections


Jimmy repeats his part from the break for the majority of the rest of the song, then 
takes over yannis' tremolo part at 4:24

Yannis moves onto this: (4:23)

(Tremolo picking, delay)

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then there is this 'solo' (5:16)

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-16---14-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------16---14---12--14-16---------------------------------------------|

A|------------------------------------14b15--14------------14s16-------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


As the song approaches the end, yannis plays this, before playing the first half of the 
above 'solo' once more
(5:59)

e|-19---17-----------------------17------------------------------------------|
B|-----------19---17-------17-19---------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------19-------------18b19--16------------------------------|
