Harry in Winter

Harry in Winter is a glorious melody that (I’m convinced) will be recognized as a modern classic at some point. While I haven’t seen many of the Harry Potter films — the music is fantastic, deeply thematic, and it resonates with me.

Harry in Winter is by composer Patrick Doyle. It worked out beautifully for guitar, and the piece is relatively easy to play.
