Loved everything about this… Very ingenious and engaging arrangement of a melody that pretty much everyone knows. Your use of the RTs is really skillful here and totally complements your lead playing. Again, the arrangement, including changes in tempo and instrumentation, are well engineered to keep the listener attentive and entertained throughout.

Tchaikovsky meets Pop!

Intriguing (and very different).

Dick Dale sits a Hank Marvin's feet to produce a shadow drenched rendition of a classic...not hooked on either.
Well played.

What a blast. This is very impressive. Your command of BIAB and RealTracks and selection of chords and rhythms really shines here. I admire your boldness to take on Tchaikovsky with a lead guitar. I think you balanced it quite well with emphasis on the right parts and conveyed the spirit of the song very effectively. It's an interesting juxtaposition of styles on the one hand, the sweeping melodic lines of Swan Lake, but on the other the southwestern picking style of the guitars, but it really works. The supporting harmonies and instruments blend quite well.

Tchaikovsky is smiling.
Fun interpretation, played well. Thank you for sharing!

Misha.
