Last week’s post from Oliver Stone’s Snowden, Hawaii Guitar Theme, was not representative of this blog. It’s note for note, but in hindsight, it was underwhelming. Probably no one else thinks this but me — but my standards are just higher than that.
This post, however, is on point. Snowden Moscow Variation is a really pretty piece of music. The tone is hopeful and resolved. I haven’t seen Snowden yet, but I imagine this is the closing theme.
Snowden Moscow Variation turned out great for guitar. In the latter half, I employed a technique that Gustavo Santaolalla uses in his song Riding Horses from Brokeback Mountain. I’m basically emphasizing the interval of each chord in the fingerstyle section.
