Concerning Hobbits by Howard Shore from Fellowship of The Ring

I played and recorded as a special request by robairlb@gmail.com

“Concerning Hobbits”  from the soundtrack of “The Fellowship Of The Ring”

The use of Irish tin whistle, and fiddle in the original recording for the main melody gives the track a Celtic feel.

The tin whistle is somewhat similar to the Nay in our culture.

You may notice the extensive use of ghost notes while I play the melody; as an attempt to imitate the dynamics created by the instruments used in the original recording.
I decided to end in the main theme of LOTR. It just felt right.
