From the Huffington Post in the USA:
This Unconventional Cover Of A Guns N’ Roses Song Is Beyond Awesome
Posted: 10/07/2013 11:19 am EDT
You may not have guessed that a guzheng would so delicately capture the essence of Guns N’ Roses’ harmonious hit “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” In fact, you might not even know what a guzheng is.
For those of you who don’t know, a guzheng is a Chinese plucked zither, related to the Japanese koto, the Mongolian yatga, the Korean gayageum and the Vietnamese đàn tranh. If you don’t know what those are either, you’ll have to watch the video above to find out.
Enjoy the teenage musician’s unlikely hard rock ode and be warned: things get really intense around 2:37.
