Song: Titanic 'Main Piece'
Artist: James Horner
Tabbed and transcribed by: Andrew Martin (andmarti@unixg.ubc.ca)

This is the 'main rift' to the movie Titanic (1997).  It appears
several times in the movie, including as a pipes solo in 'Hymn to the
Sea', which is where I tabbed this from.
Take it slow and listen to the timing off the soundtrack.

That's about it.  The timing isn't easy, I've tried to represent it as
best I can, but use your own judgement.  This piece appears elsewhere in
the movie, usually altered a little. Add in slides, pulls and short
notes as you see fit.

Another Version of the same piece:
When the rift is sung by the etheral voice, it's a little lower.
It sounds more like:
