Lesson notes

Written by Nino Rota, the romantic theme from the movie Romeo and Juliet is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful movie themes.There have been several different versions of the song including the famous instrumental version by Henry Mancini and the ones by Luciano Pavarotti and Josh Groban. This guitar arrangement is based on a piano version. The A minor key chosen for the arrangement makes it possible to have a version that fits the instrument well and uses most of its range while allowing the player to use expressive elements that are essentially guitaristic (vibratos, slides, etc.). This makes the piece sound as if it were composed originally for guitar.
