Young Woman Plays Guns N’ Roses ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ on Ancient Chinese Instrument Guzheng

‘She’s got an instrument that seems to me / Reminds me of ancient memories’ … A young woman from Vancouver, Canada, has become a YouTube sensation 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 (not the Olympic ice skater) posted the clip a couple weeks ago, and it already has nearly 300,000 views (as of this post). Sporting an Axl Rose headband, Kwan plays a beautiful version of the GN’R favorite on the guzheng, a plucked zither instrument that dates back to roughly 500 B.C. Ex-Guns guitarist Slash himself must have been impressed as he retweeted a mention of Kwan’s performance earlier today (Oct. 7).

According to her YouTube profile, Kwan has been playing the guzheng for more than 12 years. While she only has a few videos posted, she is currently taking requests. We’d love to see her rock Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Crazy Train’ on the guzheng. What about you? Let us know in the comments section below.
