    Default How to play Swan Lake on piano?

    I would like to learn how to play the main theme from Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" (the one that is heard in Act I No 1). However, I cannot read sheet music so I would prefer a tablature (eg with letters) instead. Thanks in advance!

    I would think learning how to read sheet music would be a much easier task than transcribing the score into tablature.

    Learning to read music isn't that difficult.

    I agree with krummhorn, it really is not difficult. I had played guitar for ten years by ear and tab, and finally around 5 years ago I learned how to read notes, and it was an incredibly quick process....especially if you already know the notes on your instrument well.

    If you still can't be bothered, there may well be videos on YouTube of people showing you visually how to play it - I know at least that my sister uses YouTube to learn the arpeggios that make up an Adele song, or whatever that female pop-star's name is
