Misty Mountains

Free audio download on SoundCloud.

The Hobbit was directed by Peter Jackson, and the classic music is from composer Howard Shore. Misty Mountains was, naturally, sung by Dwarf Cast.

My family just started watching The Rings of Power. We’re finding that — to get all the references — we need to backup and revisit The Lord of Rings series of films. I remembered that I especially liked the 3 ‘Hobbit films’. They never felt long or tedious. I just loved them from start to finish.

Misty Mountains was one of my first ever posts — a full 10 years ago. I deleted that, re-arranged, and updated the entire piece and guitar tab.

(This is music that I’ve played, and intend to play, on Intellimusica. It flows beautifully — and additionally works as music for focus, meditation, and relaxation.)

The guitar tab for Misty Mountains is beautifully written across 2 pages. This piece is also an excellent addition to my 2 Minute Classical Guitar Archive. Any difficulty with those arrangements is negated by their short duration; a fun way to practice guitar without the time investment.

I recommend Misty Mountains for intermediate guitar players and up. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

This piece is played straight through without repeats.

I’m tuned one whole step down, D G C F A D. However, you could just as easily play this in standard tuning.
