Sure, but the beautiful guitar work makes it so the singing would just ruin it.

But Jimi's vocals make the original incredible; SRV did it for the guitar. :]

Something i saw earlier. Zakk wylde and slash playing voodoo child. And anything of apocalyptica. They do metallica covers on cellos.

To me, that was Stevie's way of properly paying homage to Hendrix. I think he played the song in the way that he felt would do it the most justice and at the same time gave it his own voice. It will always be one of the most moving covers for me.

I also enjoy Tool's version of No quarter and Billy Corgan's version of Landslide.

Marty Friedman's rendition of Massenet's Meditation from Thais

As far as I know, it's the only classical piece that has been translated well into electric guitar.

Here's an original version:
Sarah Chang playing Meditation


Edit:
Brad Mehldau's jazz rendition of Radiohead's Exit Music

...modes and scales are still useless.

Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the cake this morning!

Yeah. I love Mehldau's playing as well as his developments. The music goes through a very smooth dynamic mountain and I like how just a trio was able to create that effect.

Yeah, the haunting atmosphere of the original was recreated perfectly.

Definitely. Also, his phrasings really emulate the "suffering" voice of Thom Yorke well.

I Never Dreamed originally by Lynyrd Skynyrd but redone by Black Label Society. 1 of my favorites. Death has a cover of God of Thunder that I really like, it sounds much darker than Kiss's version.
