Poets Of The Fall - The Poet And The Muse tab version 1

Both listening to the music in and playing Alan Wake got this stuck in my head.
I HAD to figure it out (by ear of course since no one else had tabbed it out yet).
So here you go, The Poet and the Muse by Poets of the Fall AKA Gods of Asgard.
This is for Tor and Odin.

INTRO:

 1st Guitar

|------------------0-------------------2p0-------------------------||------------3-------3-----------0---------0-----------------------||--------4-----4-------4-----2-----2---------2-------2-----2h4p2---||------4---4-----4---------2---2-----2-------------2-----2-------2-||--0-2-------------------0-----------------------------------------||------------------------------------------------2-----3-----------|
Then you play A, F#m then quickly go on to the 2 in: Well call this Lick #1 for future reference.
|----------5-----4-----||------3-----3-----3---||----4---4-----4-----4-||----------------------| and repeat. Let the 2 ring throughout.|--2-------------------||----------------------|
2nd Guitar

Then you let guitar 1 play Lick #1 until he starts to sing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You know repeat all of the intro 3 times, and then you play the chorus: CHORUS: Play this every time he goes to the chorus. A measure is 4 beats in this song. G for a measure. A for a measure. Bm for a measure. E for 2 measures. A for a measure. Then strum G once. A once. Then play Lick #1 and go back to the intro for the verses. You will play the next verses, the chorus once more, some verses again, and then it will slow down, but you dont play the full intro, you play the Bm pattern, then A pattern, the you strum F#m, G, A, F#m, and Bm. Then the solo begins: solo (sorry if its a little off, I think its right):
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------15h17b19-17b19b17-15h17--1717p15p14-----||---------------------------------------------------------------------13--||--16--161616---16h18b19--18p16----------------------------------------13-||------------------------------17-----------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

its 4 elevens not 8 ones in case it confused you|--15-17b19-||-----------||-----------||-----------||-----------||-----------|
Now go right back into the chorus and play it twice. Instead of playing Lick #1, you play, (as the last chord progression) G strumming for 2 beats, not once, A strumming for 2 beats, Bm strumming for a full measure, then strum E once for 2 beats, and F#m once for 2 beats. Then start the chorus over. The second time play a bit slower and you stop at the Bm chord, after that he plays this:
|-------2-| let ring.|---2-----||-4---4---||---------||---------||---------|
There you go! The Poet and the Muse. Listen to it while you play and it will help immensely, trust me. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here's the lyrics as well, in order. Theres an old town wrought with mystery of Tom The poet and his muse And the magic lake Which gave a life To the words the poet used Now the muse she was his happiness And he rhymed about her grace And told her stories of treasures Deep beneath the blackened waves Till in the stillness of one dawn Still in its mystic crown The muse she went down to the lake And in the waves she drowned And now to see your love set free You will need the witches cabin key Find the lady of the light gone mad with the night Thats how you reshape destiny The Poet came down to the lake To call out to his dear When there was no answer He was overcome with fear He searched in vain for his treasure lost And too soon the night would fall And only his own echo Would wail back at his call And when he swore to bring back his love By the stories he'd create Nightmares shifted endlessly In the darkness of the lake And now to see your love set free You will need the witches cabin key Find the lady of the light gone mad with the night Thats how you reshape destiny In the dead of night she came to him with darkness in her eyes Wearing a mourning gown Sweet words as her disguise He took her in without a word For he saw his grave mistake And vowed them both to silence Deep beneath the lake Now if its real or just a dream One mystery remains For it is said On moonless nights they may still haunt this place And now to see your love set free You will need the witches cabin key Find the lady of the light gone mad with the night Thats how you reshape destiny And now to see your love set free You will need the witches cabin key Find the lady of the light gone mad with the night Thats how you reshape destiny
