The Night King (part three)

Free download on SoundCloud.

My third (and final) installment of Ramin Djawadi’s The Night King is the crescendo of the whole 9 minute piece. It’s also the most memorable motif.

My lasting impression of this music is that of total brilliance. When I first watched The Long Night (Game of Thrones S8, Ep 3) I thought the music was a strangely deliberate. However, over time, the music and episode have become inextricably linked.

The creativity of Ramin Djawadi is stunning. I often wonder how Robert Plant came up with the unintuitive vocal melody on Kashmir. Same goes for The Night King; it’s odd, wild, and totally works.

(Note: This is my premium material. Please join my email list to be updated on all of my latest guitar tabs.)

The guitar tab for this final installment is beautifully written across four pages. You’ll repeat (twice) the large passage from pages 2 and 3. On page 4 you’ll repeat the End section twice — swapping the final stanzas. All is indicated clearly in the guitar tab.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

The Night King (part three) is played two whole steps down: C F A# D# G C. If you don’t want to tune your guitar that low — you could also play the entire piece in standard or a whole step down. Whatever you choose will sound fine.
