The Real Hero (Don’t worry, no spoilers!)

I’m a bit late on this piece, but I only just watched Avengers: Endgame. The Real Hero is mostly an orchestral piece. However there’s a subtle fingerstyle guitar resolution at the end. I took the cues from the guitar bit, then I created my own arrangement, incorporating the orchestration into the piece.

I LOVE this traditional classical piece, also from venerable A-list composer, Alan Silvestri. Porch is played at the very end of Infinity War and signifies Thanos’s “retirement” on his literal porch. It’s also used as Thanos’s planet is visited in the very beginning of Endgame.

Gear used

For, The Real Hero, I used my Cordoba GK Studio. It’s a super lightweight, low-action, easy playing classical. It’s a dynamically perfect guitar. GK Studios are devoid of the usual intonation and tuning issues found in most nylon-string guitars.

The guitar tab for this piece is beautifully written across two pages. I recommend it for intermediate guitar players and up.

Again, I just took cues from the melancholic guitar part at the end of the song. I used that as a spring board to bring in the orchestration — while retaining the minimal spirit of the guitar section. Towards the end, I’ve added my own nuance to reintroduce an element of main title theme — just for fun:) You’ll repeat the long passage in the beginning (twice) as indicated within the guitar tab.

Enjoy, the tab is available below:
