Lord of the Rings Tune – Mandolin TAB

I recently purchased a mandolin and have been able to pluck out a few songs. Some of the two-finger C, D, and G chords I can play with some skill. And though I am learning and having fun with it, there is one song that both my wife and I have enjoyed learning (you can only play “Constant Sorrow” for so long).

This is an ongoing work. I have pieced together some of the basic tabs for the melody. I will eventually get more of a completed tune as my skill progresses. You may even be able to hear me play it in the future… soon.

Here is my mandolin tablature that sounds a bit like the “Concerning Hobbits” song combined with a little of the “Misty Mountains” song from The Hobbit:

This is a very basic song to pick out. It is for all of us who are learning. More little tunes from the movies may be added. Let me know what songs from the movies should be added to this.
