Cavatina (Deer Hunter)-really `not possible`? 16:55 on Thursday, December 19, 2002
Ive been taking guitar lessons for about a year now, and have always been wanting to play `Cavatina`. I asked my guitar teacher about whether he had the sheet music and if I was advanced enough to play it and i was told that it was `impossible` to play on your own. He said that it was not possible to play both the base notes and top notes at the same time-and when listened to on a cd they merely play the two separately and overlap the two through editing.Is this true? My guitar teacher does often seem to not know what hes talking about and it would be a big disspointment if it was true.

I started to play this a few years ago (from sheet music) but found it very difficult to get it to sound smooth when making the chord changes. I`d like a copy of any alternative you have that you reckon sounds good

Your guitar teacher was right in a sense since the original is a guitar duet. You can fudge it and attempt to play (most) of the two parts simultanoeusly. It sounds OK for most of it this way although you need to be quite nippy to do it totally smoothly, even then though it don`t sound `dead` right

if your guitar teacher is referring to the way Cavatina was played by John Williams in the movie - he is wrong. It´s a tricky piece to play, but far from impossible to play on your own. Be sure to get the right notes from Stanley Myers: Cavatina - From "The Deer Hunter" (for guitar solo).

You guys have not searched hard enough on the web. You can find Cavatina and a lot more guitar tabs here: http://alt.venus.co.uk/weed/music/classtab/welcome.htm
I also found the transcript with tab last year and printed out but I forgot the site URL.
I have played for many years but on and off. This piece is very hard for beginners as it requires lots of left hand strength. I first tried it many years ago and found it impossible for me to play. Last year I finally learned it, and now I can play it entirely with minimal hiccups - at least I can entertain myself.

I have heard my friend play the song and it is really beautiful. Howver, I do not have the music score for the song. If anyone has any idea where can I find it, and other nice guitar songs music scores, please tell me...i really like to play the guitar.

My teacher handed me a Cavatina` published in the UK .. the piece .. arranged by JW himself.
I`m not a classical guitar talanted one so now it`s my 2nd year practising and I tell you I`m improving ... Cavatina keeps me practising playing CG. My benchmark is the solo played by JW with the symphony...
You can check your progress by yourself by listening to the guitar solo..
For some CG devotee ... like me .. it takes time to play the piece... I think JW himself takes days and hundred or thousands of times mastering the piece before going on recording.
