Guns N’ Roses

Slash de­liv­ers one of his finest so­los in this clas­sic Guns tune from their epic de­but al­bum

This clas­sic tune from Guns N’ Roses hugely suc­cess­ful de­but stu­dio al­bum Ap­petiteFor

De­struc­tion con­tains some great rock ’n’ roll mo­ments, in­clud­ing crack­ing wah play­ing. If you don’t own a wah pedal, it’s not the end of the world, as we’ve tabbed the main gui­tar, which for the most part doesn’t use one un­til the solo.

There are lay­ered gui­tars through­out this track,14 of­ten play­ing the same part, but us­ing tonal vari­a­tions to cre­ate a huge wall of sound. The solo was made from three sep­a­rate takes, each with a dif­fer­ent tone.

Much use is made of bends, ham­mer-ons and pull-offs in Mr Brown­stone. As with any new licks you learn, make sure that you add them to your own play­ing – after all, Slash as­sim­i­lated many ideas from play­ers like Jimmy Page and An­gus Young, so what’s stop­ping you from do­ing the same?

GN’R tuned down a semi­tone on the orig­i­nal, but our ver­sion is at con­cert pitch to save you hav­ing to re-tune your gui­tar.
