I'm listening to the soundtrack to the lord of the Rings now, by Howard Shore, it's amazing, I've loved listening to it for ages, but today for some reason I got thinking, I wonder if the ideas used here could be transcribed on to guitar, I know it's been done, but I don't want to play the exact songs, just the scales/musical themes conveyed, anyone know anything about it? Basically like neo-classical influence. Thanks in advance.
There are a million different pieces in that score. We can't "give you a scale" (though it would be major and minor the majority of the time (though the Shire theme seems modal to me, which would make it ionian))
