    I've decided i'd quite like to do a piece of Lord Of The Rings theme music for part of my music tech arrangement, but I don't know the name of the song I want to do, just how it goes. It's the theme they use when Aragorn is about, and also the theme used when Gimli, Aragorn and Legolas are tracking the Uruk Hai. It goes like this DDD CC D G A A# A G F G A. I just need its name.

    It´s a theme tune of sorts...

    In FOTR the song is called the bridge of khazad dum.
    In TTT it´s called Uruk Hai.

    I got the extended edition box set for christmas. It is so good. The audio commentary is also good, tells you a lot about the film. For example, in the Black Gate battle scene, the troll that is fighting Aragorn was originally going to be Sauron himself, but they dropped that idea, and imposed a troll image on the one of Sauron.

    What is it called in ROTK? I'm sure it's got something to do with Aragorn's presence, or one of the fellowship's presence, as it only plays when they are around.

    It is such a good theme tune. Greatest theme to a film ever. Best orchestral piece i've ever heard too. Love it.

    I thought it was called Aragorn's Theme or something like that. It is a recurring theme throughout the film(s). Howard Shore did an awesome job orchestrating, composing, etc for these films...just awesome.

    I can do the Gollum voice too...in fact I have won some radio contests with that voice when ROTK hit the theatre.

    My buddy has the sound track and he says it comes up many times throughout the various arrangements. It comes up in The Ring Goes South for one. I still think it is called Aragorn's Theme.
