Penny Dreadful

Penny Dreadful, was a supernatural horror/drama series that aired from 2014 to 2016. The series is set in Victorian London and features a number of well-known horror characters, including Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and the vampire Count Dracula.

The series’ musical theme, “Demimonde”, is composed by Abel Korzeniowski.

This is a beautiful piece of music that really opens up at about at 0:40 into the actual song. The opening section of Demimonde was difficult to convey on guitar, so I focused on the latter part (that I really wanted to play anyway.)

The end result, is a guitar piece that sounds like a cross between an old Western theme and a Bond theme. While Demimonde is not a total walk in the park, this song is good for beginner guitar players to build skill due to the song’s repetition and short duration.
