    NOTE: Please move if in wrong forum.

    Hey! I've recently been listening to this group known as the Vitamin String Quartet, who are various string players (violin, viola, cello [woo!], bass, etc.) that work in the music buisness and do tribute albums for all sorts of bands and music. (Metallica, AC/DC, Rolling stones). Wellm In one of their most recent albums, I found a compoistion of New Divide by Linkin Park

    iTunes Store - Vitamin String Quartet - Strung Out, Vol. 11: VSQ Tribute to Modern Rock Hits

    (need iTunes)

    Check it out and also look at their other tribute albums!

    Listening to this and some of their other stuff, they seem like really, really good musicians. I mean, hell, their version of a Dragonforce song is actually listenable, which is a miracle.

    Unfortunately, I think this cover just shows what a dull track the original is. It just dsoesn't go anywhere, no movement, little dynamic range, and very little melody.



    ...and I got through my entire comment without mentioning Apocalyptica doing this kind of thing first.... wait....shit.

    The NEST version from Revenge of the Fallen is better. Since it's a pop song, not going full classical works better.
