See why the acoustic guitar is perfect for Star Wars’ Imperial March

Our worship of Darth Vader (we empathize with Kylo Ren) and his theme never fades, and we think this cover performed by musician Jonas Levfert is a breath of fresh air among all those orchestral, organ-pipe and electric-guitar versions that have been uploaded since Youtube was created.

His performance sounds like a mixture of a Rumba Catalana in the intro and a ballad straight out of a Renaissance Fair in the development of the main theme.

Based in Sweden, Levfert has a knack for re-arranging tv and video game soundtracks for acoustic guitar: Tristram (Diablo), Comptine d’Un Autre Ete, Zombie, Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings (Concerning Hobbits), The Hobbit (Misty Mountains Cold), Skyrim Theme, Super Mario Bros are only a few examples you can find on his channel. Oh, and he also has tabs available!
