Bathroom Dance

If you require an ominous soundtrack for Halloween night, I recommend the Joker Movie soundtrack. It’s absolutely dread-filled.

The composer is Hildur Guðnadóttir; a tiny, soft-spoken Icelandic lady. She also composed the score for Chernobyl. While she’s done other work with Johann Johannsson, her (musical) niche is hopelessness and despair. Currently no one does it better (worse?) than she.

I came up with this version rather quickly and I love how it turned out on the guitar. Initially Hildur Guðnadóttir’s music doesn’t seem applicable to a solo instrument. However, if one listens long enough, we can begin to hear the subtle themes and melodies with in her dark and brooding work on Joker.

The guitar tab is beautifully written across two pages. I configured Guðnadóttir’s piece into a slightly longer arrangement for guitar; I created one long passage that I play twice through.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
