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.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
