Textures - Awake


Transcribed by Travis Lausch

Bear in mind here that this song has so many tracks of guitar and keyboard that it's 
impossible to tell what's
what in this song. This is going to be a pretty bare-bones arrangement, akin to 
the band would play live.
The band has a pair of guitarists, whose parts are so indistinct that I'm just going to 
and arrange this for one guitar.

Tuning is standard, 7-string (BEADGBE)

Intro

(This is the only distinct "lead" guitar part in the song.
It's probably layers of like 5 or 6 guitars or something. I've written it here for two.)

This part may or may not be played over the entire "verse".
This song does not have a standard "verse/chorus" structure.

2nd riff:

(I guess this part would be the "pre-chorus" of the song. Figured out by watching a 
cover,
and the official music video. Chances are, this is more sophisticated than just power 
if
you listen to all the layering here. From the music video, it seems another guitar is 
higher
chords and I hear some chime-y stuff that's almost impossible to pick out)

I REFUSE TO PAY THE FERRYMAN!!!

(This is where the song gets heavy, and the meter gets poly!)

Note: from here until the end, barlines are not actually representative of where the actual
measures are. I'm using them here to separate distinct riff patterns.

Repeat that staff once, then:

Then the little bridge before the second "chorus"

(There's a track of something that sounds like octave strumming, so I'm going to include 
as well,
though it may be keyboard. I'm not putting in barlines here, but it's a six-over-four pattern)

Now, for the next chorus, start with Rhythm Figure 1 (played with repeat),
while a second guitar plays this octave figure:

(Chord changes for the rhythm guitar are notated here)

   C5                                  B5

|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|


Then we have the very ending/second half of the chorus, which is essentially the
same as the last one, but with a couple changes for the end:

And there you have it. It's not an overly difficult song to play, but it makes extensive 
of layering,
reverb, and other effects to give it ambience, so that should be kept in mind when 
this.
This is a fairly simplified arrangement (and it's still fairly complex!).
