Is This The Best-Ever Cover of 'Sweet Child O' Mine'?
When I was 16, I was kinda pleased with myself for being able to play the bassline for Guns n' Roses' Sweet Child O' Mine. Mostly because it's both melodic and intricate: the kind of combination that would make da ladies swoon (I assumed). Well, as impressive as my so-called accomplishment was, it severely pales in comparison to what Michelle Kwan can do.
She's the gal in this video. And she's rather proficient at an ancient Chinese string instrument known as the Guzheng. So proficient, in fact, that she can bust out a version of Sweet Child O' Mine so badass, Axl Rose himself would be moved to tears (no easy feat given he's quite possibly some sort of ginger cyborg). Listen and judge for yourself. Particularly the solo. It'll knock you on your arse in the best possible way.
