The Desolation of Smaug

I hope you’re enjoying your holiday. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to be with your family, catch a few movies, and play some guitar.

Rather than a substantive post this week, we’ll get right to it.

How to Play Kingsfoil for guitar, by Howard Shore, from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The music I interpret for Intellimusica happens spontaneously, so I was happy to do a short and easy song this week. 

After previewing the entire score from The Desolation of Smaug, I settled on Kingsfoil.  The melody was simple, and I knew I could come up with a meaningful arrangement fairly quickly (10 minutes actually).

Kingsfoil is easy to play, short in duration, and a perfect song for beginner and intermediate guitarists. Kingsfoil is in standard tuning, and played with a capo on the 3rd fret.  Enjoy, the tab is available below:

Happy New Year!
