Fin!

Hope you enjoy playing this typically beautiful Damon Albarn melody! Please comment/contact me
for further clarifications.

EDIT - Play the following very fast in the chorus with a second guitar to mimic the piano playing
in the background:

It is best to listen to the studio version for this part and then try and play it. This is
because during the final 2 note arrangements, the pianist goes a bit slower. Not absolutely
necessary to play this, but if you have 2 guitars, it will sound nicer playing this in the
ⓘ Guitar tab for 'Hostiles' by Damon Albarn, a male alternative rock artist from Colchester, Essex. Damon Albarn was born in 1968. Damon Albarn is known for his good natured rock/pop music.
