Childish Gambino – Redbone (Tabs)

Childish Gambino – Redbone (Tab)

I almost tried to pass off Childish Gambino’s Redbone as a Halloween song thanks to its inclusion in Get Out. Although Werewolf Bar Mitzvah will always be Donald Glover’s spookiest song.

Helpfully, Genius has a video of Redbone producer Ludwig Göransson breaking down all the parts in the song. Including a chord chart and sheet music. As well as being useful for learning the song, it’s interesting to see how the song grew. Well worth a watch.

One of the things he mentions in the video is the oddity of an extra bar in the second pre-chorus. To avoid making the tab unnecessarily long, I’ve tabbed the alternative bars next to each other. So first time around you play just bar 22 then skip to the chorus. And second time, you skip bar 22 and play bars 23 and 24 instead.

The picking in this is one-finger-per-string right up until the solo where I switch to strumming.
