Careless – Royal Blood

Tabbed by: JDS

Tuning: Drop D - DADGBe

Tab arranged for guitar not specifically for bass, although it could be used for bass if a suitable 
pitch shifting pedal were used.

Please listen to the song when reading the tab to get the general idea of rhythm, where strings 
ring out and where they are muted, strumming pattern, etc.

\\\\ denotes slow slide down, not really possible to get the same sound as on the recording, as it is 
probably done with a pitch shift pedal where the pedal is slowly released or something like that.
