Cavatina

This is my cover of “Cavatina”. It is well known as a theme from the film “The Deer Hunter“. It had originally been written for piano, but at guitarist John Williams’ suggestion, Myers re-wrote it for guitar and expanded it. After this transformation, it was first used for the film The Walking Stick (1970).

After the release of The Deer Hunter in 1978, Williams’ instrumental version became a UK Top 20 hit. An instrumental recording by The Shadows, was released on their album String of Hits with the name “Theme from The Deer Hunter” and reached the top 10 in the UK singles charts

My version is based on the Shadows approach.
