The Long Night

I loved the end credits theme from Game of Thrones, Season 8 Episode 3. The Episode is called The Long Night and the end credits song is called Not Today. This piece served as an abbreviated preamble of Ramin Djawadi’s, The Night King, which played throughout the latter half of the battle for Winterfell.

I’ve added this to my 2 Minute Classical Guitar Archive, as the piece clocks in at 1:51. Although it’s technically not for beginners — anybody can give it a shot due to the short duration.

How to play The Long Night (end credits) for guitar

This piece is very short and beautifully written across a single page. Not Today is best for intermediate guitar players and up. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

You’ll play the tab straight through, taking care to repeat the sections within the brackets two times.

Not Today is played two whole steps down: C F A# D# G C. You could just as easily play one step down, or even in standard tuning.

The guitar tab is titled “The Long Night”. That’s because the soundtrack was released long after I posted this piece. I literally didn’t know the title of the song.
