“Bobby Krlic has been crafting ominous, atmospheric work as the Haxan Cloak for ten years, so it’s no surprise his first stab at a horror-film score is so masterful.

The director Ari Aster listened to Krlic’s music while writing the script for Midsommar (his follow-up to last year’s brilliant, slow-burning psychological horror breakout Hereditary). Aster decided who better to write the soundtrack than his muse, and the result is transfixing, gorgeous, and terrifying at once. Even without the film, Krlic’s revelatory work stands on its own.” Margaret Farrell, Pitchfork. 

Having just seen Midsommar, I can tell you the film is mesmerizing to look at. It’s like a technicolor dream. Director Ari Aster, and cinematographer Pawel Pogorzelski are true visual artists. The shimmering major key music alludes to the rotting facade of the commune and creates a sense of unease.

This guitar arrangement is a snapshot of the final motif, Fire Temple.

This song is relatively easy to play. However, it’s best suited for intermediate guitar players. You’ll never have more that two fingers fretting the guitar, but its requires a certain finesse and agility to play in time.

The guitar tab is beautifully written across two pages. It’s essentially one long passage that you’ll play twice.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Fire Temple is played in a low open tuning — as indicated in the guitar tab: B F# C# F# F# C#. Not sure what to call this. Maybe C# suspended?
