Sweet Child of Mine is already a much beloved song. Immediately upon its debut in 1987, it began occupying a constant rotation upon radio playlists, and in the tape decks and cd players of so many young kids of generation X. Time and tide has moved on – we have music on phones now! – but this song remains a classic. And, here in this cover by Luca Stricagnoli is a gorgeous and vivid instrumental representation of it that is like nothing you’ve ever heard before.
Played upon two guitars, here is an artist who felt not all could be said from his soul with just one instrument; so instead he looked to another. Float away for a few minutes while watching a great guitarist at work.
