I Kill Giants

I haven’t seen the movie yet, but the music by composer, Laurent Perez Del Mar, really resonated with me. Specifically the title theme, I Kill Giants. What beautiful piece of music.

I lengthened the title theme, and added little ending riff. Lately, I’ve enjoyed creating my take on the original source music.

No spoilers here but the premise reminds me of a highly underrated film, Take Shelter, by director Jeff Nichols. In the movie: a young husband and father (Michael Shannon) is plagued by apocalyptic visions of an impending storm. He questions whether to protect his family from himself — or a coming storm.

How to play I Kill Giants for classical guitar

I Kill Giants is best suited to intermediate guitar players and up. There’s a killer stretched out position beginning at 0:36 of the video. I may look easy in the video, but my freakishly long Olive Oyl arms allow my (relatively small) hands to reach those shapes.

The guitar tab is a single page long and beautifully written. You simply play straight through, repeating the main passage twice.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

I Kill Giants is played one whole step down. Your tuning is as follows, from low to high. D G C F A D.
