Finch on Apple + was a beautiful and highly entertaining movie: In a post-apocalyptic world, Finch (Tom Hanks) knowing that his health is slowly failing, builds a robot to take of his dog after he passes.

The robot was played by the delightfully weird, Caleb Landry Jones. You’ve seen him as a supporting actor in movies over the years. He’s one of those guys with a bizarre charisma; you can’t look away from him. I feel like Thom Yorke of Radiohead has a similar je nais se quoi.

The tender and minimalist music by Gustavo Santaolalla is pitch perfect.

How to play Ball Throw | fingerstyle guitarĀ 

Ball Throw is the main guitar motif that’s played throughout Finch. It’s a pretty little riff that’s very easy to play. No worries, I know that most of you are playing acoustic guitars — so I wrote the end section in a lower octave as well.

You’ll play in this order: the main section then End #1, the main section then End #2.

Ball Throw is played in standard tuning:
