Sweet Child o' Mine by Guns N' Roses Full Band Cover Complilation

Recommended Posts

"Sweet Child o' Mine" by Guns N' Roses Full Band Cover by Ann Marie Lindsey, Kalen Willits, Sean "Raven" White and Myron Carlos

This is NOT a note for note cover. It's the collaboration that we were talking about! We all recorded our own parts at different times to the exact same track and put it all together with Sony Vegas.

As much fun as it was to do this, I don't know if I ever want to do something like this again. The rendering of the video took literally 5 days. Lots of layering and resetting.

All aside, this is something we talked about for a while and seeing that these students will be graduating in a few weeks of this upload, time was against us and we would be beside ourselves if we hadn't done a compilation. Hope you all enjoy!

welll done!!! that was pretty cool...totally can understand the time that must have taken to put together.

were you one of the players?

they are all talented (obviously)...but I just didn't think the singer was playing full out...she was good...just seems to lack some "power from within" if you know what I mean. She sure sings better than I can though...very cool.

kinda gives an inside look at how things are recorded separately and then brought together to form a cohesive end result.

thank you for sharing. I'm sure the musicians out there will appreciate the list of equipment used as well.

Good cover!!!

Although, all the chick singers sound the same. The ones who sing with that chick voice. Just like her in the video. That's why I really dislike amateur female singers (especially when they sing SCOM)...They sing too clean, pure and bland... But yeah, not a direct insult to the girl in the video. Just to all girls :D...

But like, I said, good cover!! Keep it up!

Hey everyone!

Sorry it took so long to reply! Yes, I'm the guy playing rhythm guitar and drums. The rest of the musicians are my (former now) students. They always wanted to get together to do a compilation video for youtube and we agreed on Sweet Child. Mind you, I didn't teach them EVERYTHING they know. I just sort of nudged them into a certain direction to help them hone their skills. One of those "plant a seed and see what it becomes" sort of deals.

It was a learning process for all of us. We don't have a great setup for recording so we did the best we could. For example, the headphones had only the backtrack playing so we couldn't hear what we sounded like necessarily because those are sound isolation headphones. It was all for fun.

The lead guitarist is hoping to get sponsored which explains the long lists of equipment used. Through doing drum covers, I've become endorsed by 5 drum related companies and he was hoping to do the same with some guitar companies.

In all, it was purely for fun and the experience doing a compilation. We all tried our best at getting the "perfect take" but I had work and they had classes to worry about, not to mention our own personal lives as well.

Thanks for checking it out! rock3
