Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake transcription

Here’s an arrangement of the main theme I did using Sibelius 7 (which I am starting to get the hang of a little) which includes guitar tab.  I started by getting a piano score that had the main melody and also showed chord symbols. First I put the melody into the software as the upper voice, then I added the bass accompaniment based on the chord symbols, building up with relevant strong notes from the spelling of the chord, root or other strong character tone. 

Went through about 5 revs during the course of today, and now have an arrangement I quite like though I am sure I will continue to futz with it.

The chord symbols are just there as indicative of the harmony at each point and what I based the accompaniment on.
