Beautiful Lie

I highly recommend the extended cut of Batman v Superman on HBO Max. A full 30 minutes has been added to the film which develops the characters and storyline much better. It’s essentially “The Snyder Cut” of the film.

Beautiful Lie is the piece at the beginning of the film as we’re introduced to a young Bruce Wayne. Though the score is credited to both Tom Holkenborg and Hans Zimmer, Beautiful Lie is almost certainly a Zimmer piece. Holkenborg tends to be more gnarly — as in the Wonder Woman theme.

Gear used

For this piece, I used my Cordoba C7 Cedar guitar. It’s a dark sounding guitar that retains the high end nicely. You can find a complete list of my gear here.
