                        Mountain At My Gates - Foals
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rory H
E-mail: rdeh10@googlemail.com

Tuning: DADGBe (drop D)

Foals' new song, 'Mountain at my gates' from the forthcoming album 'What Went Down'. Loving the track and 
thought I should tab it as best I could! There will be a few inaccuracies and if you spot any or can improve
the tab at all, let me know in the comments or by email and I'll see what I can do :) Enjoy!

For the outro, both guitars play the pre-chorus section through two times as far as I can tell, although
it becomes a bit drowned out so a little improvisation might work nicely in your favour if you want!

On the intro and verse chords I'm pretty sure you just mute every note on the D and A strings, playing only the notes on G and bottom E.

This can also be played like this, which i find easier, especially on acoustic.

Good tab. Here is the [Intro/Verse 1/Chorus 1/Post-Chorus] in standard tuning:

Guitar 1:

The rest is the same as the drop D tab.
