Oppenheimer is Christopher Nolan’s 12th motion picture. It’s widely considered to be his greatest achievement — with some critics calling it “the film of the century”. The film follows the life of theoretical physicist, J. Robert Oppenheimer who developed the first nuclear weapon.

Ludwig Göransson’s score for Oppenheimer is tremendous. The instrumentation is a perfect blend of classic and modern. Violins in concert with synthetic soundscapes. The old world ushering in new (atomic) age.

My fingerstyle arrangement is the closing (title) theme ‘Oppenheimer’.

The guitar tab for Oppenheimer is beautifully written across 3 pages. I recommend this piece for intermediate guitar players and up.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

You play this arrangement straight through without repeats.

My tuning for this piece is fairly low at 1, 1/2 steps down. It looks like this from low to high:  Db Gb B E Ab Db.

You do not have to tune that low. The song also sounds great in standard tuning.
