This piece is very obscure, but I had a bunch of folks request this all at once on YouTube, Instagram, etc. Although it's a great riff -- it might only appeal to fans of the Netflix series, Outer Banks. The music (score) for the series is by composer, Fil Eisler. I'm assuming this untitled motif is by him --  and I refer to this as the Midsummers guitar theme (season 1, episode 5 of Outer Banks).

It comes off as a nice étude: a short musical composition, typically for one instrument, designed as an exercise to improve the technique or demonstrate the skill of the player. -Oxford Languages

How to play Outer Banks: Midsummers (guitar theme)

(Resources: learn more about Premium Memberships here. Get my weekly posts right to your inbox.)

The guitar tab for Midsummers is beautifully written across two pages. Rather than write the interval over and over again, I wrote the interval once (and indicated the number of times played) with dots trailing the interval. You'll see 6 dots trailing the first interval (. . . . . .) That means you'll play the interval 6 times. The tab is much easier to read like this.

The interval itself will be played with your right-hand thumb, 1st and 2nd fingers. It's relentless and fast -- so start slow, and build speed over time. You'll play the passage between the ||: repeat signs :|| twice.

Enjoy, the tab is available below:
