Guitar Game of Thrones Theme Cover by Guitar Legends
This is pretty cool!
Perhaps these famous guitar heroes have just formed the Casterly Rock Band
Game Of Thrones creator Dan Weiss, Tom Morello of Audioslave/Rage Against The Machine, Scott Ian of Anthrax, Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme, Brad Paisley, and Game Of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi shred on the Game of Thrones Guitar Theme (Watch the Video Below)
It’s amazing to watch these guitar heroes figure out the Game of Thrones guitar notes (corrected by the theme composer himself, Ramin Djawadi)
They all seem to be having so much fun working through this – at the end of the day that’s what it is all about – having fun with music, exploring and jamming with your friends!
From Nuno Bettencourt to Tom Morello, Scott Ian to Brad Paisley, all guitar styles are covered in this one off, fantasy jam!
One You Tube Commenter summed it up perfectly:
Dan: I can hold my own
Tom: S P A C E
Fender Guitar Game of Thrones Models
What was it all about?
Fender had teamed up with HBO to create three masterbuilt guitars.
The trio, dubbed the Game of Thrones Sigil Collection, includes the Game of Thrones™ House Stark, Telecaster®; the Game of Thrones™ House Lannister, Jaguar®; and the Game of Thrones™ House Targaryen, Stratocaster®.
The Guitar legends were giving these stunning guitars a run out.
If you have a Game of Thrones Guitar, well it’s obvious what you got to play!

Game of Thrones Guitar Chords
In the the Game Of Thrones Theme Song Custom Shop Fender version the guitar chord progression is Em – Bm – D – Em.
Although, Scott Ian is in power chord heaven on this track with a palm muted E5 – B5 -D5 – E5 progression with a heavy, distorted tone.
The original Game of Thrones Soundtrack (and key of the customisable backing track) is C Minor.
The original Game of Thrones Guitar Chords would be Cm – Gm – Bb – Cm
Some of the fan’s comments!
We just love the You Tube Comments on the video:
“Are they using Valyrian steel strings we wonder?”
“This was better than the whole 8th season”
