Sweet Guzheng O’ Mine?! – Hear Guns N’ Roses Performed on an Ancient Chinese Instrument

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Michelle Kwan (no, not the figure skater) has been getting a lot of attention on YouTube by uploading her cover versions of classic rock and pop tunes, played on the guzheng, a Chinese plucked zither.

Her most recent clip might be her best work to date: a beautiful version of Guns N’ Roses‘ classic ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine.’ As you’ll hear she takes on the lead guitar part initially before switching over to Axl Rose‘s vocal line, and then matching Slash note for note on his amazing guitar solo. (You’ll also hear the original playing in the background, but don’t hold that against her.)

Kwan earns bonus points for wearing a vintage Axl outfit, complete with red bandana and sunglasses. Our only question now: Where does she go now?
