Suspiria is a 1977 Italian supernatural horror film directed by Dario Argento. The 2018 version of Suspiria is directed by Luca Guadagnino (Call me By Your Name). The 2018 plot of Suspiria focuses on a young American dancer who enrolls at a prestigious dance academy in 1977 Berlin. The dance academy is fraught with strange and supernatural incidents.

Thom Yorke of radiohead has written the score for Suspiria; the first single of which, is Suspirium.

Learning a Thom Yorke piece is truly unearthing genius. The underpinnings and progressions of Suspirium are very avant garde — yet they sound natural and flow seamlessly.

How to play Suspirium | fingerstyle guitar

Although Suspirium looks easy to play, this piece is best for intermediate guitar players and up. The guitar tab is a behemoth 5 pages long! I tried to condense it, but Thom Yorke’s vocal phrasing is so cool that I wanted to capture as much as I could on the guitar.

Your order of play looks like this, in accordance with the guitar tab: Intro (page one), Verse 1, Verse 2, Verse 3 — Bridge (take care to repeat where indicated, and continue to page five) — Verse 2, Verse 3, Bridge.

Good luck, the guitar tab is available below:

Suspirium is played in a 1/2 down DADGAD tuning. Your tuning will look like this from low to high: C# G#  C# F# G# C#. Or depending on your tuner, it will look like this: Db Ab Db Gb Ab Db.
