I’m Tired

I’m Tired is the signature track from Euphoria (HBO) season 2. The music is from English musician, Labrinth, who scores the entire show. Labrinth (a singer, rapper, songwriter, and producer) is in Alt-hip hop space where musicality reigns supreme. I’m Tired is an incredible exposition of songwriting talent and skilled musicianship.

Ever since I heard this piece, I could hardly wait to run it through the filter of my guitar. Having immersed myself in the guitar style of composer Gustavo Santaolalla — I use his minimalist approach on everything. This arrangement of I’m Tired took me about 20 minutes to complete. I was in a flow state the entire time, and I love the way it turned out.
