Fantastic Beasts

The Fantastic Beasts movies — as with the Harry Potter predecessors — seem to be set in winter more often then not. For that reason, I think of the films, and the music by James Newton Howard, as seasonal. To me, it only feels right to play this music around winter. My favorite piece from the franchise is, A Close Friend. I view it as the central theme.

I love composer James Newton Howard. His scores from M. Night Shyamalan’s early films — Signs and The Village — are some of then best ever created.

The guitar tab for A Close Friend is beautifully written across three pages. I recommend it for beginner guitar players as it’s  really easy to play. Enjoy! The guitar tab is available below:

You’ll play the guitar tab straight through without repeats. I labeled the chords above the tab to make it more efficient to read.
