The Capo Crusader: An Acoustic Arrangement of Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine"

In the following video, our own Jimmy Brown -- aka the Capo Crusader -- shows you a special "unplugged" version of the Guns N' Roses hit "Sweet Child O' Mine," which first appeared on their debut album, Appetite for Destruction.

In the original version of the song, Guns tuned down a half-step, but in Jimmy's acoustic version, you'll stay in standard tuning with a capo placed at the 6th fret.
