It's a long video, but WORTH WATCHING.

Classical guitar cover of Pink Floyd's "PIG'S (Three different one's)" from the album 'Animals'. Because of the complexity of this song... Keyboard, drums, bass, guitars, great vocals... I simplified it as much as possible to keep it as simple. I played it in standard 440 tuning, capo on 1st fret for my HORRIBLE singing range. The chords: Em, C, G, Am, D.
Lots of intricate single notes and solo guitar work should be included, but for a single take on recording... I think I covered it well in just 8 min 36 sec's. My singing isn't the best (or even close to good)... but at least it's within my range. I LOVE PINK FLOYD, and almost every song they ever produced. I consider myself to be one of their biggest fans! "Yeah, yeah, yeah..." You say that you hear that from lots of Floyd fans.
How many of you saw The Wall tour in 80 -81?
What about Delicate Sound of Thunder tour in 1988?
I have some European (non-USA-released) live cd's, and all of their studio USA albums (or tapes and CD's).

Roger was/is a musical genius, David is one of the best Stratocater players EVER!!!! Nick and Richard had their moments also, and Syd was a lunatic.
All of their songs were rock music of the future... music that had never been imagined or dreamed up. DRUGS and ALCOHOL had a partial factor in their history, but the most amazing classic rock history (60's 70's & 80's) was stained this way. I am a non-drug user. But that doesn't prohibit me from lovng their (Pink Floyd) creativity and experimentation.
I was very close to taking a vacation to Pompei, Italy in 1991 to visit the ruins where they filmed the "LIVE AT POMPEI" movie. Other priorities kept me from fulfilling this dream vacation.

Anyway, I hope TRUE PINK FLOYD FANS and MUSICIANS will appreciate my cover of this awesome song.

I am playing a vintage Valencia Classical guitar (made in Spain 1960's). I installed a Martin Transducer thin line pickup under the saddle, running it through a Marshall AS50 acoustic guitar amp (clean - of course!!!) with 35-40% reverb. I am singing into a Shure SM58 mic, running the mic through a BOSS BR-532 multi-track recorder.

Video recording was made with my Nikon Coolpix S230 digital camera... (video mode) The video quality is pretty low, but that's the best I can do. Maybe a new video camera is due for Christmas this year?
