Westworld is an American dystopian science fiction Western television series that aired on HBO from 2016 to 2022. It is based upon the 1973 film of the same name written and directed by Michael Crichton.

The series is set in a futuristic amusement park called Westworld, where wealthy guests can interact with lifelike android “hosts” in a Wild West setting. The hosts are programmed to obey the guests and cannot harm them, allowing the guests to live out their wildest fantasies without consequence. However, as the series progresses, the hosts begin to develop consciousness and awareness, and they start to question their roles in the park and the world beyond.

Westworld is a complex and thought-provoking series that explores AI, consciousness, and the nature of reality.

Ramin Djawadi’s Westworld theme is so inventive. Once distilled to a single guitar — you can hear the Spaghetti Western quality to it. It’s like a techie Ennio Morricone piece.

The guitar tab for Westworld is beautifully written across two pages long and played straight though without repeats. This piece is for intermediate guitar players and up.

The shapes that begin at 0:56 (after the arpeggio) are followed by a four dot  (. . . .) symbol. This is simply indicating for you to play that shape 4 times.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
