Tuyo is the cool tune from the program Narcos. This transcription, however,, is from a live version (Rodrigo Amarante - Tuyo (Parque lage) I stumbled upon and liked it way better.. So this is not the version you heard on Narcos.
This is mainly a minor ii-V-i chord progression.
Listen to the tune, check out the corresponding TAB, learn the bits you like, play it the way you need to so that you get the vibe right.
Do not try and play this exactly as written, just use it for inspiration.
A fretboard diagram to show the chord formula in action using the notes from the C Major scale.
Take the 1st, then the 3rd and finally, the 5th note from the scale. That would be C, E, and G:
Those three notes make up the C chord.

I transcribed this song for a student as it was an excuse for me to learn this great song. It's a solid example of intricacy, solid melody, and arrangement.
The secret to learning this song and others is to get the bass line happening. I transcribed this song so that the bass line has the stems pointing downwards. The rhythm and melody notes have the stems pointing upwards.
Like I said, get the bass line happening, and then work in one rhythm or melody note at a time.
Also, try and sing it to your self. Give your self an idea of what it should sound like.
