Sweet Child O' Mine

The song "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses is originally in the key of D major. It was released in 1987 as part of their debut album "Appetite for Destruction." The song was written by the band members Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler. "Sweet Child O' Mine" was the band's first and only number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Interestingly, the iconic guitar riff that opens the song was initially conceived as a warm-up exercise by Slash. Known for its catchy and melodic chorus, the song has become one of Guns N' Roses' most recognizable and popular tracks.
