PLAY­ING TIPS

CD TRACK 3

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Rock -

[ Bars 47- 54] Al­though E5 of­ten sug­gests E mi­nor pen­ta­tonic, here Slash tar­gets the G# – the ma­jor 3rd. This gives the whole solo an in­ter­est­ing Mixoly­dian flavour with­out play­ing any ex­plicit Mixoly­dian scale shapes ( it’s based ini­tially around sim­ple dou­ble- stops that spell out E7). The one- an­da­half- tone bend ( bar 51) that fol­lows can be tricky, but since it’s grad­ual, it’ll sound fine if you don’t quite reach all the way to the ( vir­tual) 22nd- fret D.
