I'm mostly talking about rock and metal-oriented songs being played on instruments such pianos and woodwinds and brass and things like that, or vice-versa and classical

Personally I'd like to hear Steve Vai's For the Love of God played by a full orchestra, without the guitar and drums and electric bass. His performance with the Holland Metropole Orchestra was amazing, but I think my favourite part was the oboe and flute intro.

Samething with Octavarium by DT, except if they could just build on that part one part after the Continuum intro and in the climax near the end and extend that. It would sound awesome.

So Pit, what songs would you want to hear on instruments other than guitar and bass and drums?

Jump by Van Halen on keyboards. That would be crazy!

But seriously, most things would sound great on synths and all. Michael Jackson should cover Black Diamond by KISS! That would be the best thing ever.

There was an awesome advert for BBC4 where it had Purple Haze played on violin, it was awesome. All the purple haze (violin) videos on youtube sound well bad tho.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Apocalyptica's stuff is all done on 4 cellos. They've done covers of thrash songs (A lot of Metallica, some Slayer), Smells Like Teen Spirit, Toxicity, Stairway to Heaven, and Paint it Black, among others.
I know that on Tantric's latest album, they had a violinist.

Anyways, most of AIC's stuff would sound pretty cool on other instruments.

Call Of Ktulu is awesome on piano too. Lots of Cliff lines have a classical feel to them.

There's a load of songs done well by Ed Alleyne Johnson on the electric violin (he busks in my city). He even has a loopstation and a metal zone pedal :p

And there's a guy on youtube that plays Tool songs on piano.


I find his music amazing.

Pretty much any song played on a church organ would interest me.

Oh, I meant to give "Call of Ktulu" a shot on the piano, but I never got around to it. Now I might...

Also, I have a fantastic piano arrangement of "Ghost Love Score" by Nightwish.

I play Sweet Child O Mine on a violin (not electric) sometimes to make money on the streets. I don't sound that great, but people recognize it and tip me for it.
