Monsters, Inc. – Boo’s Going Home

PDF File Download: Monsters Inc – Boo’s Going Home NAF Tab

Original Composer: Randy Newman

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

About: A sweet little melody that accompanies a very poignant scene towards the end of the film (I challenge you to watch it without welling up!)

On Playing: Quite a lot of unusual, cross-fingered notes are used for this piece but it’s quite slow, so take it at a steady pace and you’ll be fine. The original piece is played beautifully and sensitively, so use some gentle breath and put some feeling into your version – too gently however and you’ll lose the correct pitch on the higher notes, so it’s a bit of a balancing act.
