Ahead of the season finale of HBO's Game of Thrones this coming weekend, Nuno Battencourt (Extreme), Tom Morello (Rage against the Machine & Audioslave), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Brad Paisley (singer/songwriter), Dan Weiss (HBO's Game of Thrones' showrunner) and Ramin Djawadi (composer) got together with Fender Custom Shop's made-to-order electric guitars (dubbed House Stark Telecaster, House Lannister Jaguar and House Targaryen Stratocaster) and re-interpreted Djawadi's GoT opening theme. It's actually amazing to watch Djawadi (who also composed for films and TV shows like Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans, Westworld and Prison Break) shred along with the guitar rock gods.
Since I've completed my debut novel and am working on my next project, I thought I'd share some of the music scores I've been listening to that helped inspire some of the scenes in my novel. These scores can either serve you as a reader or a writer. For me, they were definitely helpful when I wanted to complete a particular scene (eg. battle, duel, a chase, escape, etc.). I'm embedding some of the tracks I'm referencing from Spotify. Hopefully, they can play on your platform as well.
