Latest Youtube Violin Lesson: Game of Thrones Theme
April 30, 2015
So everybody is super obsessed with Game of Thrones, and to be honest, I've never seen it. I know, shocker-but I started reading the first book, and while I loved it, I wasn't sure whether it was the best thing for me to be reading to expand my life, and started reading some entrepreneurial blogs which got me headed toward creating violinlikethat.com-and with my limited time constraints in life, well.. I might finish the series at some point. I think I'd like to, but I have a long list of things I'd like to do, and that's not top on there.
Also I would see how people who religiously followed the show would say things like "everybody's putting up spoilers! Stop it!!", and, well...I mean that's just dumb. The book is always better. And you know,

.George R. R. Martin put out a whole series of spoilers. And the scenes you paint in your mind are way more exciting.
BUT I've been entranced by the theme song. The first violin cover I saw was this one (and it totally launched him to international superstardom sooo pretty cool.)
And then just recently, my cool friend, Benjamin Goodman put out a piano 4 hands version, and I like to plug friends who are cool. So here that one is too, for your listening pleasure:
And, well, there are a LOT of them. And really cool ones, too! So I thought I'd let you all learn how to play it, and here it is!
First things first!
Scales are necessary evils, friends. Sorry about that, but there's not much you can be successful at without the foundations....
SO LEARN THE SCALE FIRST!
Here's your reward:
