Alejandro Suite (inspired by Sicario)

Free MP3 Download on SoundCloud.

Like you, Sicario is one of my top 5 movies of all time. The initial music by the late Johann Johannsson (and the subsequent Hildur Guðnadóttir) is prefect for the tense and wide open landscapes of Sicario and Soldado.

Benicio del Toro who plays the films’ anti-hero, Alejandro — has the most extraordinary resting face. With barely a glance he can convey a complex backstory. He has a permanent sadness to his gaze.

With Alejandro Suite, I just started riffing on the character: his complex backstory, and the hard choices he must make ahead. I wanted to the guitar piece to be a journey — played straight through without any obvious repeated sections.

How to play Alejandro Suite by Evan Handyside

Alejandro Suite is sparse and relatively easy to play. Although I’m not using any difficult chord positions, I feel the piece is best suited to intermediate guitar players and up.

The guitar tab is 3 pages long, beautifully written, and played straight through without any repeats.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Alejandro Suite is played in standard tuning.
