Lesson notes

Slash wrote the infamous opening riff to Sweet Child O’ Mine as a joke! He was playing around in rehearsal with a string skipping exercise and voila… a masterpiece was born.

You’ll not only learn the string skipping introduction, but also the verses, chorus and some awesome examples of soloing in the style of Slash.

By the end of this lesson, you will have a greater understanding of what makes Slash’s guitar playing so unique and memorable, as well as the tone and expression he uses to maintain his status as guitar-god.
