Morning is the central theme from August: Osage County -- a highly underrated soundtrack by Gustavo Santaolalla. Much like Brokeback Mountain, the film's score has Santaolalla exploring uniquely American themes.

How to play Morning by Gustavo Santaolalla

Morning is beautifully written across two pages. It's essentially one long passage, played twice. This piece is relatively easy to play. While best for intermediate guitar players, beginners can definitely give it a shot too.

I like this song as an etude that really works Santaolalla's arpeggiated right-hand technique.  A good start for that technique would be a song called Did This Really Happen?
