I mentioned (in the Music Theory Thread) that 'Spaghetti Western' & 'Sci-Fi Westerns' are similar. 

They have scenarios that include: reluctant heroes, cruel villains, violence, bleak landscapes, and non-traditional music scores. 

Want to share tutorials & sheet music for this Style of Film music here. 

I hope you will all consider trying one of them... or share your own!

HERE'S 2 TUTORIALS! 

 

  

AND, I can't resist sharing this one, because it's how we can learn! 

Discussion of musical properties, in this thread:

Guess I need to try some. 😊

Okay, the fireflies have been spotted this last couple weeks, so what better tune to learn than the theme from "Firefly"

Yeah, Sci-Fi series again - but always thought this sounded kinda Spaghetti Westernish - what do ya think? 

 

"Ballad of Serenity" from Bluegrass Daddy, but it's really the back-up cause he's not playing the melody... hey, it's okay to play the melody, too!  John has a tutorial available.

 

 

Livy Amoruso does a great 2 fiddle/mandolin/piano version!

@ELCBK - It was often referred to as a space western. Here is an electric violin version which you might like. Oh, and I loved this series and was disappointed when it wasn't renewed.

The old curmudgeon!

@JohnG -

I saw that - it's GREAT! 

Nice to know you're a fan, too!  

Love these cellos -

Really skirting on the edge of this topic with these 2, but don't know where else to share them - they're great tunes to learn from 2 very enjoyable movies. 

 

The Lone Ranger, "Silver" play-along sheet music - Hans Zimmer (TheAbsoluteZxero)!

 

The Mask of Zorro, "Zorro's Theme" play-along sheet music - James Horner (RPJ Music Productions)!

...should I just start a "Learn Western Film Music" thread?
