Toss a Coin to Your Witcher

Free download on SoundCloud.

Toss a Coin to Your Witcher, is by composers; Sonya Belousova, Giona Ostinelli, & Joey Batey. (Joey Batey is the English actor and singer, who plays Jaskier in The Witcher.) I finished up The Witcher (on Netflix) a few weeks ago, and this song has been stuck in my head ever since. Many guitar players have covered/arranged this already, but I figured I’d toss my hat in the ring (or coin rather).

The Witcher series is very music forward. Jaskier (a main character) is a bard: a profession which entails writing and singing songs of legends, and stories of personal experience. His main tune is, Toss a Coin to Your Witcher. This character is played fabulously by Joey Batey, who’s talent level is off the charts.

If you haven’t seen The Witcher yet, it’s excellent. Gosh, I might like it better than Game of Thrones!

Gear used

For The Witcher, I used my Cordoba C7 Cedar. It’s a warm and dark sounding guitar. My recording gear is a Zoom Q8 camera with a Zoom SSH-6 stereo shotgun microphone. You can find a list of my current gear here.

The guitar tab for this piece is beautifully written across three pages. I recommend it for intermediate guitar players and up. My order of play, in accordance with the tab, looks like this: Intro, Verse 1x, Pre Chorus 2x, Chorus –Verse 2x, Pre Chorus 2x, Chorus 2x, End.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

There are two possible ‘minor’ tunings and capo positions for this piece:

  1. C# F# C# F# A C#. Then you’ll place a capo on the 4th fret.
  2. D# G# D# G# B D#. Then you’ll place a capo on the 2nd fret.

The second tuning doesn’t require such a huge down tune drop. You might like it better.
