An Imposter And A Magician by Marmaduke Duke
From The Magnificent Duke

Found this song pretty difficult to tab, but I think its about 
90% accurate. The tuning on Guitar 1 could probably be 
transcribed onto a Drop C guitar, but this tuning is easier.
The guitars aren't tabbed in perfect timing, but I got them as 
close as possible. You can work it from listening to the song.


Enjoy, and if anyone even checks this tab, please rate it!

Guitar 1 - Standard but tune 6th down to C 
Guitar 2 - Standard

I still gave this 5*'s man, but I agree it's not quite perfect. I keep hearing Bs. Try tuning 3rd string up to B and play the intro and verse with 3rd open and 1st and 2nd as you have it. Sounds good to me. Then for the chorus try:

e|---2------2----------(---0-----0-----------3p0-)
B|-----0------0--------(-----0-----0---3---------)
B|-----------------0---(-----------------0-------)
D|-2------0----------5-(-------------------------)
A|---------------------(-------------------------)
E|---------------3-----(-3-----3-----3-----3-----)

The bit in brackets is a guess at the last 4 bars, I definitely hear a G and E as the last two notes though. Might need the big headphones to hear better. Hope this is useful?

Cheers, and again great tab!
