Only Solitude

Free download of this performance on SoundCloud.

I adore this piece of music from Gustavo Santaolalla’s Monsterland soundtrack. So creative, so beautiful. While it’s actually played on a violin, I reimagined it as a solo guitar piece in Santaolalla’s signature, minimalist style.

The guitar tab for this arrangement is beautify written across one page. Only Solitude is essentially one long passage played twice. It’s very easy to play and perfect for beginner guitar players.

Additionally, this song and a nice fit for my 2 Minute Classical Guitar archive; a collection of short études for fingerstyle guitar.
