But for the Fall of Rain

Free download of this performance on SoundCloud.

This is piece of music I wrote for Adam Taylor’s micro-short animation, But for the Fall of Rain. [Parents, although it’s an animation, there is an F-bomb in there.]

Adam is a Hollywood based editor and filmmaker. The voice actors are Parisa Fitz-Henley (Midnight Texas, Jessica Jones) and Malcom Barrett (The Boys, Preacher). The glorious singing at the end of the film is Opera singer, Janet Todd.

How to play But for the Fall of Rain | fingerstyle guitar

The guitar tab for this piece is beautifully written across two pages. It’s essentially one long passage that you’ll play twice. My order of play looks like this in accordance with the guitar tab:

Passage, End #1

Passage, End #2

End #1 is a rapid (Santaolalla-esque) fingerstyle. You’ll play through those shapes 7x, as indicated in the tab.

This song is easy to play, but better suited to intermediate guitar players. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
