The Office 

Free download on SoundCloud.

My wife and I plowed through The Office in 2019. All of my younger guitar students had been imploring me to watch it. The series turned out to be just the right thing for us to watch. I get home late from work on weeknights, and need something light.

Not sure how you feel, but to me, nothing compares to the Michael Scott era, seasons 1-7 :)

The guitar tab for The Office is beautifully written across only one page.  I recommend this piece for intermediate guitar players and up.  Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

In accordance with the guitar tab, you’ll play the: Intro 2x, and the Verse 4x. The Office is played in an Open E minor tuning. If you’re playing *without a capo you’re tuning will be E B E G B E. However this requires you to tune you 4th and 5th strings up one whole step.

The Office: theme for classical guitar

I much prefer to tune my guitar one whole step down with the exception of the 4th and 5th strings. Then I capo the 2nd fret. My tuning looks like this: D A D F A D. Then I apply a capo to the 2nd fret.
