Westworld (HBO): theme for guitar (Ramin Djawadi)

Ramin Djawadi’s Westworld Main Title 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.

I love my arrangement of Westworld. It’s no secret that I’m a massive Gustavo Santaolalla fan, and when I arrange a piece, I put it through the prism of, what would Santaolalla do?

Of course, I have no idea what he would do, but I can only imagine, and that usually leads me close to perfection. Although, Westworld is not simple to play, I tried to simplify this piece as best I could. By playing as minimalist as possible, I’m able to play each note/chord with some level of ardor.

How to play the Westworld theme for classical guitar 

The guitar tab for Westworld is two pages long and played straight though without repeats. 

Although I try to make everything I do as simple and minimal as I can, I would characterize this song for intermediate guitar players and up. There’s a fairly difficult arpeggio at 0:53 of the video.

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:

Westworld is played one whole step down. Your tuning is as follows, from low to high: D G C F A D.
