Hairclip is the guitar variant of the True Blood “love theme” by composer Nathan Barr. True Blood was a GREAT show, and I always thought the score was exceptional. The music had a slight Celtic/Appellation theme to it, that worked really well in the setting of Bon Temps, Louisiana.

Although it may not look that way from the video — I found the chord shapes of Hairclip to be slightly difficult. I think this piece is best for intermediate guitar players and up.

The guitar tab is beautifully written across a two pages, and played straight through. You play each of the passages within the repeat brackets twice.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Hairclip is played in standard tuning with a capo on the second fret.
