BLACK RIVER KILLER - Blitzen Trapper

Tabbed by:Mikey Smalls
This is a great song. I couldn't find any tabs that were quite right, so I transcribed
it by ear from a live studio session I found on YouTube. Note that this version is played
with a capo on the 5th fret, but the version that the official music video for the song
uses is played with no capo and sounds slightly different. This is the main riff for the
song; he changes it up throughout but you can play around with it to make it your own. I
think this is as close to perfect as you can come for the main structure of the song
though. Enjoy!
