Fifty Fifty

Narcos: Mexico is the soundtrack that I had been waiting for. It’s a glorious series and Gustavo Santaolalla adds a smooth, dark underpinning. Much like Amado Carrillo Fuentes character himself.

Although Gustavo Santaolalla is prolific pop musician and composer — I prefer his film music the most. Within his soundtracks, Santaolalla delivers really clever, minimal guitar pieces. Of those scores, I prefer the darker, brooding, and avant-garde soundtracks like: The Motorcycle Diaries, Babel, and The Last of Us.

Fifty Fifty is beautiful guitar piece based around a simple A minor chord shape.

This piece is one long passage that I play straight through. Even though there’s a tricky bit at 0:52, I still recommend this for beginner guitar players and up. The chord shapes are really easy to play.
