It (2017): Beverly (Benjamin Wallfisch) for guitar + TAB

Beverly Composer Benjamin Wallfisch’s IT score, is one of the great scores of 2017. I’m still enjoying the music, even two months removed from seeing the movie. Beverly was a much requested piece from the score. If you’ve seen the movie, this music is played […]

Gustavo Santaolalla: Amores Perros (guitar themes) + TAB

Amores Perros Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Amores Perros (2001) is an ambitious story of lives that collide in a Mexico City car crash. Inventively structured as overlapping and intersecting narratives. Gustavo Santaolalla initially said no to this project, because he was too busy producing […]

The Polar Express: theme | fingerstyle guitar (Alan Silvestri) + TAB

The Polar Express Composer Alan Silvestri’s The Polar Express theme is a modern classic, and I think of it in the same caliber — as any of the classic John Williams movie themes. Even though The Polar Express was released in my adulthood (2004) I […]

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Don’t Come Around Here No More (fingerstyle guitar) + TAB

Don’t Come Around Here No More Very sad news about Tom Petty. He was a favorite of just about everybody. I had the opportunity to see him live a half dozen times since high school, AND just this past June — where he looked and […]

Blade Runner 2049: Tears In the Rain (Hans Zimmer, Benjamin Wallfisch) for guitar + TAB

Tears In the Rain I would also strongly add Vangelis as the principal composer of this song. “Tears In Rain” minus a (the) is from the original iconic Blade Runner (1982) soundtrack. Tears in the Rain is nearly a verbatim replicant (sorry had to) of […]

Blade Runner (1982): Main Titles (Vangelis) for guitar + TAB

Blade Runner 1982 The original Blade Runner is one of my all time favorites. I’ve watched it a dozen times. Ridley Scott’s bleak dystopian future is still so gritty and “80’s weird” — in a conceptual way. Like all great SiFi themes, the Blade Runner […]

IT: Blood Oath (Benjamin Wallfisch) for guitar + TAB

Blood Oath This is definitely my favorite tune from the IT score. I just recently saw the movie and it’s great (no pun intended). I’m 40, so I remember when the book came out in the 80’s. Actually I was literally the exact same age […]

IT: Every 27 Years (Benjamin Wallfisch) for guitar + TAB

Every 27 Years I am amazed by composer, Benjamin Wallfisch. I hadn’t heard of him till I arranged his music from Dunkirk for guitar. If you’ve seen Dunkirk, Wallfisch contributed the ambient melodic movements which embody the ‘heart’ of the film — while Hans Zimmer […]

Game of Thrones: Truth (Jon Snow & Daenerys theme) for guitar + TAB

[Don’t worry, no spoilers] Truth Not sure what the statute of limitations is on spoilers, but the “big reveal” from Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 7 was made obvious from fan theories several years ago. I walked into a local guitar shop, where I […]

Wind River: Feather – William Wild (instrumental guitar) + TAB

Feather This song is played during the end credits of Wind River. Feather is by indie folk artist, William Wild. William Wild is the moniker of guitarist/singer Garrett Sale. I think it’s a Bon Iver situation, where the pseudonym eventually becomes known as the entire […]
