It's a funny thing that solo, even though on paper it is easy I have never ever heard anyone play it and get the phrasing down properly, even top notch guitarists. I think it is a brilliantly constructed piece of music and performed perfectly on Appetite.

are you kidding, slash is one of the worst profesional guitarist
out there. its nothing but a blues solo set with distortion and
high volume. i could play that piece of shit behind my head
and not miss a note

I think the solo is pretty cool, especially that harmonic minor-sounding run at the beginning of it. 8)

Unlike some people, my determination of whether a solo is cool depends on how it sounds rather than whether I can play it behind my head. :roll:

One of the worst professional guitarists? :lol: Are you judging that by his number of albums sold or the amount of revenue he has amassed through his numerous sold out world tours?

Nothing but a blues solo? :roll: Your attitude to playing is childish, no doubt unless technically amazing a piece of music is worthless in your eyes.

You could play it and not miss a note? Post it up then, put your money where your mouth is, let us judge.

As for the solo itself, well I like it and you don't, no need to be quite so agressive! Something you'll learn when you get past the age of 14.....

thats funny becuase i happen to be 17. as far as behind my head
goes, i could play it but chances are i would miss a few notes, i
take it you havnt yet become aware of sarcism, thats something
you'll learn one you get past the age of 12.
and slash being one of the worst professional players
ever, his music is fine but as far as real playing goes
he sucks, he could NEVER stand up to anyone like
vai or petrucci, not even dave mustadiu (<--spelling?).

Actually I'm seven, but that's neither here nor there!

'real playing'?? By that you mean playing note-perfect, complex scales with some shred thrown in? By that dictum Hendrix wasn't a 'real player' either!!

The reason I thought you were so young is because you describe a work of music that millions of people love as a 'piece of shit' because it isn't exactly the same as the music you like.

Are you sure you're seventeen?

TO EACH HIS OWN. Slash to me is good but only to a certain extend.I used to think he was really really good but after hearing the outro for Paradise City...sounds abit like just running the fingers over the fretboard.

yes Slash may not be like Vai or anyone but everyone likes slash.
