    Neat song...
    discussed on another Forum...

    Anybody ever dig into this one? Gatton and others (Scotty Anderson) have covered it...

    looking for a solid Chord progression

    any thoughts?

    All I've found is a sheet music site which shows the first half, pretty much as you put it. I'm thinking it wouldn't be the worst thing ever to plop down $5 or whatever to get the full thing. In my internet searches I keep coming across a version by Ozzy Osbourne which I have not bothered to listen to so far.

    I had the same experience...
    sheet music (which means it must be under some severe copyright) and Ozzy Ozborne

    Pretty much have it figured out...thanks for the effort.

    Here's a stab..
    time signature a little off, but chords are good I think

    For my money he's probably the most accomplished and technically proficient guitarist maybe ever....and always musical to my ear.

    All that double and triple stop stuff he does on the cut heard here is in real time...not over dubbed. If you haven't already, look up some of his live performances on YT....it's a rabbit hole worth going down.

    The version recorded for the TV show has one of the coolest strings arrangements ever. After it does the theme twice there is a bridge where the strings melody arrangements ascends and descend at the same time forming one of the coolest chord melodies ever!
    I have posted about this tune before. Very cool writing.

    I was wondering how you would play this...
    chords and voicings?

    Most likely, poorly and at a higher volume than necessary...
    That particular part of the tune would sound great with guitars playing the separate string parts ala Brian May..
