                             OUT OF THE BLACK- Royal Blood
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ste5401
Ok, although this is not practical, unnecessary, and most people don't have 5 basses to accommodate different
tunings this song is in D Standard tuning (which is standard tuning a whole step down) Watch the live video.
What you'll need: a bass tuned to DGCF, Octave up pedal (Micro POG is perfect), Distortion (on pedal or amp,
I used ProCo Rat). Good Luck. Any questions/concerns welcomed below. Thanks.


Tuning: DGCF

There's a million ways to play things on guitar/bass but some understand/write better in standard tuning than
drop d and this allows you to do that. Also Royal Blood has big influence from QOTSA which uses this down
tuning a lot for the same reasons I'm guessing. Comments/questions/corrections below, no such thing as a stupid
question with guitar, I have them everyday. Thanks.
