I guess it's a matter of preference too. If you're in a happy mood then this song can be played waaaay up tempo
. Meanwhile a relaxing tempo is easier to play and may sounds better.
This one is still slower than John Williams' version though. Surprisingly I find this piece easier to play on a steel string acoustic guitar, especially for the ending. It also produces some kind of ragtime air that can not be created on CG.
Lean your body forward slightly to support the guitar against your chest, for the poetry of the music should resound in your heart.
