Sweet Child Guzheng cover is YouTube Hit
A young woman from Vancouver, Canada, has become a sensation on video-sharing online platform YouTube, after posting a video of herself playing the Guns N' Roses' classic “Sweet Child O' Mine” on the ancient Chinese instrument, the guzheng.
Michelle Kwan posted the clip a couple of weeks ago, and it already has been viewed more than 400,000 times. Sporting an Axl Rose headband, Kwan plays a beautiful version of the GN'R favourite on the guzheng, a plucked zither instrument that dates back to roughly 500 BC. Former GN'R guitarist and composer of the song, Slash himself shared Kwan's performance on micro-blogging site Twitter.
According to her YouTube profile, Kwan has been playing the guzheng for more than 12 years. While she only has a few videos posted, but after the success of 'Sweet Child”, she is currently taking requests from fans.
