TV and Movie Tunes

Here is  an attempt at putting some movie tunes I like to banjo, using clawhammer style. I hope you enjoy them.

    I just watched a re-run of the HBO mini-series on the life of John Adams. The opening theme is a celtic sounding violin tune that I believe would sound great on banjo, especially clawhammer style. I have searched high and low for the musican notation with no luck. Can you help me find it? Or even better can you help me find clawhammer banjo tab for it? Here is a youtube link so that you can hear it. Thanks!

    I went to and looked up John Adams HBO Soundtrack. The song that matches this is entitled “Opening Titles”. It sounds familiar to some of the music in “Last of the Mohicans” with Daniel Day Lewis or the music in “Master and Commander”. It may be a custom composition for the show. If you want to know more, then I suggest you write to the producer of the show.
