Call Me By Your Name: Mystery of Love | for classical guitar (Sufjan Stevens) + TAB

Mystery of Love

Mystery of Love is the trailer song (and principle song) from Call me By Your Name; and academy award nominated film by Luca Guadagnino.

In addition to Mystery of Love, indie-folk songwriter, Sufjan Stevens, has two more songs on the soundtrack: Futile Devices and (my favorite) Visions of Gideon. The rest of the soundtrack is punctuated by avant garde classical pieces including two from Ryuichi Sakamoto (The Revenant). The whole thing is diverse and immensely listenable.

Gear used

For Mystery of Love, I used my Cordoba GK Studio. I primarily play nylon string (classical) guitars on this blog. They just seem to fit my finger-style, and work well for the film score stuff I frequently do.

However, I’m not a classical guitarist. I play bass in an atmospheric alt-rock band — and in my free time — I play blues on my strat. The GK Studio plays just like an electric guitar, with easy low action. Perfect for non-traditional hybrid players like me.

How to play, Mystery of Love, for classical guitar

(Note: This is my premium material. Please join my email list to be updated on all of my latest guitar tabs.)

I would qualify my arrangement of Mystery of Love as difficult to play. The chord shapes are relatively easy — but the finger-style is fast and relentless. It was necessary to play it like this, because the dulcimer or mandolin in the background really keeps the song moving.

The guitar tab is beautifully written across two pages. My order of play looks like this, in accordance with the guitar tab:

Intro 1, Intro 2, Verse 4x, Pre Chorus 2x, Chorus 2x — Intro 2, Verse 4x, Pre Chorus 2x, Chorus 4x — Intro 1, Intro 2.
