Misc Soundtrack guitar tabs for Love theme from the godfather mandolin

Guitar tabs with lyrics

  • Tuning: Standard tuning
  • Difficulty: Intermediate
The tuning is GDAe. This theme was written by Nino Rota and conducted by Carlo Savina and released for the
official Godfather soundtrack in 1972: https://www.youtube.com/watch v=zbSMCyJkUmI

Originally an instrumental, it would later have lyrics added in various languages. The Sicilian version
`Brucia la terra` was most popular from making an appearance in The Godfather Part III. Other version are
`Speak softly, love` in English, `Parla più piano` in Italian, `Pale plus bas` in French and `Amor háblame
dulcemente` in Spanish. Here, I worked out the original score and transposed the harmonica and flute sections
to the mandolin. As it`s an instrumental, the piece does not have a verse, bridge or chorus segments.
