This score is based on the soundtrack to HBO’s Game of Thrones TV mini-series, rather than on the simplified piano arrangement published by Hal Leonard.

 Ramin Djawadi, the Iranian-German composer of the original soundtrack said, in interview, he used a traditional Japanese tako drum in the background.  The TV producers told him : “No flutes”.  He particularly likes to use the cello in his scores and also to have unusual instruments.  

 In my arrangement, I used the cello as the lead instrument, together with strings, a tako drum and bass brass.  Also at the end is a very short solo by a Japanese shamisen, a traditional three-string guitar and a short choral background, as in the original score.  

 The tako drum can be replaced by a bass drum;  the shamisen can be replaced by an acoustic guitar; and the voices are purely optional.

 To enable you to listen to the full score, I’ve created a video on Vimeo, adding a new audio soundtrack of my score to the opening titles. It can also be found at:
