Lily’s Theme

Lily’s Theme, by composer Alexandre Desplat, is one of the most poignant pieces of music from the Harry Potter films. This was was one of the first songs I ever posted — way back in 2011. It was time for a redo as I have much better audio quality, and my guitar style is completely different. It turned out to be a gorgeous fingerstyle arrangement.

How to play Lily’s Theme – fingerstyle guitar

I qualify Lily’s Theme as relatively easy to play. There are no difficult chord shapes whatsoever. However, you’ll have to be agile — as I have a few quick trills in there. The guitar tab is two pages long and beautifully written. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

This arrangement is played straight through without repeats.
