Musician Plays All 31 Parts Of John Williams' 'Star Wars' Theme On Guitar


It seems there are many various renditions of the Star Wars main theme, written originally by John Williams. Everyone seems to have their own take on the music, from a bluegrass version to turning it into a lullaby for soothing babies to sleep, the iconic song gets reimagined on a regular basis.

However, the coolest version could be this one new one done exclusively on guitar. This isn't just a simple guitar rendition of the theme, though. Atlanta musician Cooper Carter decided to do all 31 parts of the theme song, representing each instrument from the original, via his electric guitar. He then combined those parts together to create a whole and then posted it to YouTube.

The result is an electrifying version of the Star Wars theme that does much justice to the galaxy far, far away.

The video also shows Carter sporting a variety of Star Wars t-shirts, letting the world know that he's a fan, which is also obvious in the careful construction of the song that went into creating this video.

The Star Wars theme became an instant classic when it first played in 1977 with the release of the first film. Since then, Williams has composed all of the music for the film franchise, including music for the latest film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

"I've had the privilege of working with the very best musicians in both the U.K. and the U.S.," said Williams to "The London Symphony Orchestra has consistently performed with great artistry on all six of the prior films in the Star Wars saga, and I will be forever grateful for their commitment and dedication. Equally, it has been my honor to have worked with my brilliant colleagues in Los Angeles, and always appreciate the invaluable contribution they've made to my scores and to those of other composers."

The Star Wars score won Williams many awards, including an Oscar in 1977 for original score, a BAFTA, several Grammys and a Golden Globe award. His music for the sequels also garnered worldwide praise and awards.

In 2005, The American Film Institute named the 1977 soundtrack for Star Wars as the "most memorable film score of all time."

Star Wars: The Force Awakens lands in theaters on December 18.
