I guess I'm alone, but I don't really like it. The sustained tone of the guitar doesn't really work here. I'd rather listen to Ludwig van in that synthesized arrangement from A Clockwork Orange. Seriously.
 
No you're not alone. I find this interpretation nice in some way but absolutely unnecessary. 
This is a very nice way to enjoy the old masters !
If you know their method - namely, one person strums one chord, then the next strums the next chord, then the next strums the next chord, then back to the first for the next chord -- you get an appreciation for how impossibly flawless their timing is.

You should hear them do Bohemian Rhapsody. Definitely cool. (and you can picture Wayne and Garth head bobbing to it, too!)
Yep, it's cool. I keep confusing these guys with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, who do a version of Pachelbel called the Loose Canon. Good stuff.
I prefer Chuck Berry's version! :guitarist:
Most excellent. They are fantastic!

Wow, very cool. Where else do you hear David Byrne followed by Beethoven played by a guitar trio?
you must have been listening to the same set that I was. "lazy," great song, then this ... OMG, this was friggin' beautiful.
Beautiful--Beethoven for the 21st Century
I like it :curtain.gif:
Started out like it would be a tongue-in-cheek rendition; turns out pretty serious, and pretty damn enjoyable. Mi gusto! :guitarist:

Agh, this is reminiscent of 'A 5th of Beethoven' on the Saturday Night Fever album. When will people learn...
Hmmm. I don't get that at all. To me it sounds like a great big harpsichord. Not out of line at all.

Nice.... I like it. Adds a different angle and dimension to a great piece of music.
