Inception is a 2010 science fiction film written, and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Cobb; a professional thief who steals information by infiltrating the subconscious. Cobb is offered a chance to have his criminal history erased in exchange for a seemingly impossible task, Inception: the implantation of another person's thought into a target's subconscious.

Recall the world-bending special effects in Doctor Strange. Christopher Nolan pioneered that 10 years earlier with Inception.

Christopher Nolan has (literally) a perfect track record. Every one of his movies are universally adored by audiences and critics. Since Batman Begins, Hans Zimmer has scored most of Nolan's films. Inception, is one of Hans Zimmer's greatest soundtracks. The finale, Time, is a masterpiece.

The guitar tab for Time is beautifully written across 3 pages. It's spaciously written so it's easy to comprehend. This piece is not too difficult to play, but I recommend it for intermediate guitar players and up. Hans Zimmer uses a very simple (and brilliant) chord progression. Eventually the melody weaves into the chord progression, and it sits well within the established chord shapes.

Enjoy! The guitar tab is available below:
