The chord sheet was purposely done with 3 beats to a bar, i.e. / 1 2 3 / 1 2 3 / with emphasis on the 1st beat of every bar, to make it super easy for the group to play through well, sight unseen, at the jam. The tabs Alex submitted after the jam are in 6/8 time, so 6 beats to a bar / 1 2 3 4 5 6 / with emphasis on the 1 and 4 beats, AND it is for a low G tuning (not re-entrant). So for now 1 bar of the TAB / 1 2 3 4 5 6 / = 2 bars of the CHORD ONLY / 1 2 3 / 1 2 3 / When time permits, we may make up an accompaniment chord sheet in 6/8 time as well.

"Game of Thrones Theme", also referred to as "Game of Thrones Main Title Theme", is the theme music of the television series Game of Thrones. It plays during the title sequence and was composed by Ramin Djawadi in 2011, after series creator David Benioff and D. B. Weiss approached him requesting a theme. Asked to avoid flutes and violins, which the producers felt were overused in fantasy themes, Djawadi used the cello as the lead instrument. The piece begins in a minor key, then switches between corresponding major and minor keys repeatedly. Djawadi was shown a preliminary rendering of the title sequence before composing this music to accompany it. Several artists have covered or parodied the music, sometimes adding lyrics to the originally instrumental work.
