I've been looking for this for quite a while now when I recently stumbled across this board - I though maybe one of you die-hards might have heard about something like it:
Having seen the whole 'Dollar' trilogy a few times too often, the melody of the well-known pocket watch has somehow been imprinted deep within my mind. As a result, I've not only searched the world and the web for a replica of that watch but also keep pestering unsuspecting watch dealers about musical pocket watches with custom carillons/melodies.
So, has any of you ever seen or heard of a pocket watch that does what I need it to do (it doesn't have to look the same exactly, but sound the same)? I'd be extremely grateful for any pointers. Smiley

CLINTEASTWOOD.NET/ destination film music. MPW.

chords are: D (min)- G (min)- F-A-D (min)
(retards as watch slows) G (min)-D (min) ect.

estacy of gold:  A (min)-C-D-F-A (min)-G-C-E (sus)-E.
E (sus) = e-a-b-/ e-g#-b.

I assume the pocket watch tune was a Morricone melody and not a real watch, unfortunately, although how cool would that musical pocket watch be!

Check out  '60 seconds to nothing' (I think) on the Few Dollars More LP .
West Side!

Otherwise Kermits idea would be the next best thing.
Adios amigo.

 FAFDM chords:  

D min - F - G - D min - Bb - F - G - A min -  C - D min.
(repeat  again)
D min - F - D min - Bb - C - D min
(repeat 1st. line once again)
D min - F - C - A min - D min - F - D min - C - Bb - G - F - E
D min - F - G - D min - (vamp D min)
searching for tabs. lots out there. this will have to do for now.     suggestion :     go to CLINTEASTWOOD.NET
listen to the score and play along. after a bit you will see how moriconne's ideas fall together. GB&U next as soon as i learn it. not easy when you go by ear.

GOODBYE COLONEL,  Cry

{each chord has only 3 notes. ie. D min = D-F-A.  
 (sus) = raising 2nd. note to chord 1/2 step. sometimes lowering it.

D min - A (sus) - A - D min - C - D min - E (D bass) - A - D min - F -
- Bb - C - A (sus) - A - D min - C (sus) F - G .
(2nd time around)
D min - A (sus) - A - D min - C - D min - E (D bass) - A -
D min - A -  D min

I knew all those years of trying to play along with Led Zep would come in handy!

Now when I flick my poncho over my shoulder its so I can play along with my Les Paul Custom.

Thanks for the chords.
