BLACK GOLD - Foals
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: billyhunter


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

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)

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)
