UP 'Married Life' Online Classical Guitar Lesson

The guitar is a miniature orchestra in itself.
— Ludwig van Beethoven


This is a very detailed note-by-note acoustic guitar tutorial for Kevin Nash's arrangement of Married Life which is the name of the theme music for the Pixar Animation Studio's film Up released in 2009. In this video I will show you my own arrangement of left & right hand fingerings with technical advice and tips. 

The piece was composed by American composer Michael Giacchino. The guitar arrangement is in the key of A major and it winds its way through a dizzying variety of emotions from cheerful to sad, excited to languid. From a technical perspective the most challenging part is probably the outro that is played entirely with artificial harmonics. The 3rd tutorial is focused exclusively on this section. 

 Don't know which fingers to use?

If you are struggling with the fingering for either hand I do suggest purchasing my classical guitar sheet music with tabs which has my suggested fingerings for the left & right-hands

Let your fingers fly!
