Last of the Mohicans – The Glade Part II

PDF File Download: Last of the Mohicans – The Glade Part II NAF Tab

Original Composer: Trevor Jones

Technical notes: There are no particularly tricky bits I have to warn you of, just the first upper octave note which shouldn’t be too troublesome to hit. Play on an NAF in the key of A if you wish to accompany the original track.

About: Heard in the film whilst we see Cora and Hawkeye talking beneath the night sky, as they begin to learn a little of each others lives and an mutual appreciation starts to grow. It’s a very gentle piece with the melody played on some sort of wooden flute, so it sounds great on the NAF.
Apparently there was likely a Glade Part I also, but it was probably dropped when Randy Edelman was selecting which parts of the score to use in the film. (Thanks to Mohican Press for that interesting little snippet!)

On Playing:  Play it steadily and gently. Save a little extra breath for when you have to hit the upper octave note! On the first repeat, the melody is played on a lower keyed flute, before returning to the original higher-pitched instrument for the third repeat. I omitted the slight variation as it goes into a string section for the ending, though I’m sure you’ll easily be able to pick it out if you wish to.
