Sweet Child O’Mine – Vienna Style

I was wondering how far one could go with the time-stretching stuff and still make something musical.  Here’s an attempt to turn a rock anthem into a waltz.  It is a bit rough in a few places, especially the beginning – but  I think it settles into a pretty nice groove.

    Wow, that’s pretty bad. I think you are definitely pushing the limits. Fun stuff.

    “I think it settles into a pretty nice groove”. First time I’ve heard and seen that a vienna waltz is defined as a groove! Ha ha! Any groove! But hey, fun it was. But all this turns out a novelty act in the end, you hear it the first 30 seconds, and then you get the idea, and then you think…”Oh yeah, I got it, now what…?” and – at least I – don’t care to listen to the whole song through.

    I disagree, I liked this one even better than the swing version. The flexibility of some songs is really fascinating, I’d love to know more about why some of them work and some of them don’t? Gaga’s Telephone is brilliant in swing – how on earth?

    It’s especially rough in the opening because Slash is so sloppily off-beat. I will never get why he’s revered as some sort of guitar god.
