Snow

Snow (Brokeback Mountain) is emblematic of Gustavo Santaolalla’s minimalist, and egoless songwriting. There’s an unusual dissonant chord position at the end of each cycle. It catches you off guard. While Santaolalla is probably following his ear when writing music, he has a proclivity for unusual tonal changes. I like this — as it adds tension to an otherwise passive song.

Gear used

For this song, I used my Taylor GS Mini guitar. I love these guitars. They’re slightly smaller and really easy to play. You can find a current list of my gear here.

The guitar tab is beautifully written across two pages. It’s a great fingerstyle piece for beginner and intermediate guitar players. 

The guitar tab is played straight through, and you’ll take care to repeat the sections within the repeat brackets as indicated. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
