The Mandalorian

Free audio download on SoundCloud.

Set in the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian takes place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and follows a bounty hunter beyond the reaches of the New Republic. It’s filmed as “a  Western” and it’s the best Star Wars iteration I’ve ever seen.

The Mandalorian combines the talents of (show creator) Jon Favreau with Pedro Pascal (Narcos). Although personally strange — Pedro Pascal was brilliant in Narcos, and he’s one of the few actors in recent years that possesses classic, leading man charisma. But hey, even Harrison Ford is ‘aloof at best’ in interviews.

Jon Favreau just ‘gets it’. When he wrote and directed Iron Man, he single-handedly created the Marvel Cinematic universe as we know it. The Mandalorian is just as good.

On a side note: I recommend Jon Favreau’s Chef. It’s a great dramedy about over coming the odds, and most importantly, the Cuban sandwich.

In addition, his podcast with Tim Ferriss is tremendous.

Gear used

For, The Mandalorian, I used my Cordoba C7 Cedar. It’s a warm sounding guitar that’s relatively inexpensive.

The guitar tab for The Mandalorian is beautifully written across three pages. I recommend this song for intermediate guitar players and up. It’s kind of difficult to play. You’ll have to have a flexible left wrist — as you’re sitting in a barred position for most of the song.

My order of play looks like this in accordance with the guitar tab: Intro, Main Verse, Interlude 2x — Main Verse, Pre-Chorus, Chorus 2x — Interlude 4x — End.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

The Mandalorian is played in standard tuning with a capo on the 1st fret.

You’ll note that my guitar has a capo on the 4th fret. My C7 typically sits in ultra low tunings, so that why my capo position was higher.
