The NeverEnding Story

It’s great that Stranger Things brought back The NeverEnding Story. I loved that theme (and movie) when I was a kid. Movies were so adventurous and far out in the 80’s. Labyrinth, Goonies, Legend, The Dark Crystal, Beetlejuice. The list goes on and on. My wife and I are reliving a lot of those movies with our son Matthew (7). We just watched The Neverending Story together the other night. Tremendous.

How to play The NeverEnding Story | fingerstyle guitar 

This arrangement is definitely for intermediate guitar players and up. While most if the shapes are easy, you’ll have to be agile. I felt like I was playing in short bursts the entire time. I fret the chord at 0:23 with my thumb on the bass note. You don’t have to do this, but it was faster for me.¬†

The guitar tab is beautifully written across two pages and played straight through twice. I hope you enjoy this. The guitar tab is available below:

My order of play looks like this in accordance with the guitar tab:

Verse 2x, Pre-chorus, Chorus 1x

Verse 2x, Pre-chorus, Chorus 2x.

The first chorus will be ended where I’ve indicated in the guitar tab.

Stranger Things (Season 3): The NeverEnding Story | fingerstyle guitar

The Never Ending Story is played in an open G tuning: D G D G B D. Then you’ll place a capo on the 4th fret. I liked this position because the fret-board is easier (for me) to read. To be in the exact key of the song, place your capo in the fifth fret.
