How to play the Annihilation guitar theme

Annihilation is easy to play. Mostly, you’ll have a single finger on the guitar at any given time. The rapid fingerstyle will give novice guitar players and issue — but I easily recommend this for beginner guitar players.

The guitar tab is beautifully written on one page. The timing of¬†Annihilation has no rhyme or reason. I think the composer/guitar player just did it according to feel. I’ve given you breaks within the guitar tablature — to split up the sections and make it easier to read.

It’s a short piece so I added a few extra go-arounds. You’ll play the section within the repeat brackets three times, and follow the arrow on the third go-around.

Have fun. The guitar tab is available below:
