The Water Lets You In

Bloodline (2015-2017) is a Netflix original thriller-drama. The series co-stars one of my all-time favorite actors, Ben Mendelsohn. The theme song, The Water Lets You In, is a deep-bayou Americana riff by the defunct LA band, Book of Fears.

I LOVE how this piece turned out for guitar. Irrespective of the show (or the theme song), I really try to make guitar arrangements that stand on their own as something special. The Water Lets You In was excellent source material.

How to play The Water Lets You In | fingerstyle guitar

The guitar tab for The Water Lets You In¬†is beautifully written across two pages. I recommend this song for beginners guitar players (and up) as the fret positions are fairly easy. You’ll never have more the two fingers on the guitar at once. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

My order of play looks like this in accordance with the guitar tab:

Intro 2x
Verse
Chorus

Chorus 2x

My tuning for The Water Lets You In looks like this from low to high: C G C F G C. I purposefully went lower because I like the way it sounds, and my C7 is strung with high-tension string for deep tunings.

However, that actual tune of the song is (one step higher) just off of standard in D A D G A D (also used for Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir). That might be a little easier on your guitar.
