A Game of Croquet

A Game of Croquet is one of Johann Johannsson’s best pieces from his Golden Globe winning score for, The Theory of Everything. The piano arpeggios of Croquet did not lend themselves well to the guitar. However, the overall chord progression did.

With this arrangement, I created an entirely new version that is expressed, more so, with the open strings. It flows and breathes better than a note-for-note arrangement.
