YouTube videos of unknown musicians covering classic songs is nothing new. In fact, it's kind of old. But Vancouver's Michelle Kwan really knocks it out of the park with her version of Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses.

Kwan (no, not the figure skater) is a Vancouver teenager who has been playing the gezhou, a Chinese instrument with 18 or more strings, for over 12 years.

"After spending numerous years playing classical music, I decided to venture out and use the guzheng to play other genres," Kwan writes on her YouTube profile. "I've also been experimenting using guitar pedals (distortion, delay, wah, chorus, etc.) on the guzheng."

The combination of musicianship and experimentation results in a very cool sound. Her amazing Guns N' Roses cover alone, has received over 45,000 views since it was posted on Sept. 21.
