Just when we thought we’ve seen and heard every single cover of this Guns ‘n Roses classic, we find this gem. Let’s be fair, not everyone can pull it off. Sometimes, it works but all too often we find ourselves cringing because we’d go crazy Axl with how some butchered this iconic track.
But even if you’re not big on bluegrass styles, this will definitely impress you at the very least. It’s lovely and enchanting – two words we never thought we’d use to describe “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” From the vocal performance to the overall musicianship – it’s nothing short of phenomenal.
“The thing about ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine,’ it was written in five minutes. It was one of those songs, only three chords.” – Duff McKagan
It’s tough to say that this is better than the original because they took this song and made it their own. We think even Slash and Axl Rose will agree.
