PDF File Download: Gladiator – Now We Are Free NAF Tab
Original Composers: Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard
Technical notes: Requires half-holing on the bottom note, plus one upper octave note. Play on an NAF in the key of F# if you wish to accompany the original track.
About: This is the section from that track that most will recognize as ‘the music from Gladiator’, repeated throughout the soundtrack as a leitmotif. I’m working on a revised version which is the whole song, but for now, here’s the most recognizable section.
On Playing: There are some big jumps into the upper register and back again, so you’ll want to have good breath control. The half hole occurs in tandem with all holes closed, so it’s easy to just roll your finger back and forth to achieve it, especially on the last line.
