Hi everyone,

It's a little rough around the edges, but I've given 'Molly' the Mike Oldfield treatment, kinda, or something, ish:

Nice! I always liked the original for its gentleness, but your cover makes me realize just how catchy the tune actually is.

I actually prefer this to the original version. I think a highly abrasive version played manically on electric guitars would sound good too.

You're welcome. It's amazing what a difference different instruments and playing speed can make, isn't it... I remember going to Norway and hearing on a TV station one of Grieg's rather wimpish Norwegian Dances arranged for electric guitar, and it was 100% better, in my opinion.

Good point. John Williams’s band Sky brought Vivaldi and Bach alive to me as a teenager (while kinda failing to bring Mozart to life at the same time
