Lord of the Rings – Concerning Hobbits

PDF File Download: Lord of the Rings – Concerning Hobbits NAF Tab

Original Composer: Howard Shore

Technical notes: Requires use of cross-fingering and two upper octave notes. Play on an NAF in the key of B if you wish to accompany the original track.

About: One of the main musical themes that runs throughout the LotR film trilogy, associated with both the Hobbits and the Shire; usually heard played on the Irish tin whistle which translates really nicely over to the NAF.

On Playing: I’ve marked out a couple of slides between notes in the tab with a /s symbol and a grace note or two, but feel free to add more if you wish – you can hear lots of additional ornamentation when the theme is played throughout the soundtracks. You could use an NAF in the key of high D for a lively, upbeat version as heard at the starts of the track ‘Concerning Hobbits’ or a low D for a slower rendition as heard towards the end of the track.
