Nino Rota - The Godfather Love Theme
Tabbed by Hakan Deniz

measure = 4/4
tempo = 100
in the key of E

Personally, I think it sounds best with capo on 3. 
I'm a 100% sure that it is absolutely flawless. 
All notes are consecutive eighth notes, with an exception in the bridge, 
where the skipped beat is marked with a "~". 

Remember that the bass strings E, A and D are only played with the thumb, 
and strings G, B and E are played with index, middle and ring finger 
respectively. There is absolutely no need to change this.

The last notes ( <12> ) on strings B and E are harmonics. 
If you are a beginner player, and you don't know what harmonics are, just 
play them open (0) to end the song.

If you are an intermediate player, feel free to add some slides here and 
there. You may also play with the dynamics of the notes to accentuate them. 
A good example of this is to let the bass notes ring out as long as possible.


Enjoy!
