Guns N' Roses is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1985. The band achieved massive success in the late 1980s and early 1990s with their distinct blend of hard rock, heavy metal, and punk influences. Known for their rebellious image and intense live performances, Guns N' Roses became one of the most iconic and influential rock bands of their era.

The band was initially formed by vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. This lineup released their debut album, "Appetite for Destruction," in 1987, which featured hit singles like "Welcome to the Jungle," "Sweet Child o' Mine," and "Paradise City." The album's raw energy and gritty sound struck a chord with audiences, and it went on to become one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Guns N' Roses' success continued with the release of their follow-up albums, "G N' R Lies" (1988) and the ambitious double album "Use Your Illusion I" and "Use Your Illusion II" (1991). The band's sound evolved, incorporating elements of blues, classical music, and even industrial rock. The albums spawned hits such as "November Rain," "Don't Cry," and "Estranged," showcasing the band's versatility and songwriting prowess.

However, internal conflicts and substance abuse issues led to lineup changes and tensions within the band. Steven Adler was replaced by Matt Sorum on drums, and Izzy Stradlin departed, being replaced by Gilby Clarke. The original members' creative differences eventually led to Slash and McKagan departing the band in the mid-1990s, leaving Axl Rose as the sole original member.

In the years following, Guns N' Roses experienced a lengthy hiatus, with Axl Rose assembling a new lineup of musicians to continue the band's legacy. They released the album "Chinese Democracy" in 2008 after a prolonged recording process that spanned several years. Although it didn't achieve the same commercial success as their earlier albums, it showcased Axl Rose's artistic vision and ambition.

In 2016, a reunion of sorts took place when Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan reunited for the "Not in This Lifetime... Tour," marking the return of the classic lineup. The tour became one of the highest-grossing concert tours of all time and was met with immense excitement from fans around the world.

Guns N' Roses' impact on rock music is undeniable, with their hard-hitting sound, catchy hooks, and rebellious attitude influencing countless bands that followed. They have sold millions of records worldwide and have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Despite lineup changes and controversies, Guns N' Roses' music continues to resonate with fans, solidifying their status as one of the most iconic rock bands in history.


  • Lesson 1: Mr. Brownstone - Electric Guitar Lesson

    Mr. Brownstone is Guns N' Roses first single off of their 1987 album "Appetite for Destruction". This song starts out with percussive and rhythmic dead notes on the lower strings. I really like how this song showcases the percussive aspects of playing the guitar. Usually people just approach the guitar as a melodic instrument, but Slash takes advantage of its percussive qualities and uses 16th dead notes to mimic the role of the tom from a drum set. He then goes into a descending sliding scale on the low string that reverses into an ascending line and breaks into the famous opening lick of Mr. Brownstone. This song makes for a great chance to practice rock guitar playing, with its heavy use of vibrato and pull offs that are iconic to the 80's rock guitar and Slash's playing in particular. There's a lot of subtleties in this song such as grace notes, dead notes, and slides that you really have to pay attention to and include tastefully without overdoing it. Slash used an interesting technique where he would play a power chord, but then play the same chord with only one or two notes, effectively making it sound like two guitars playing one lick. The solo in this song is pretty challenging since you have to keep up with Slash's style of phrasing, which is all over the bar as opposed to being strictly on the downbeats. There's also a lot of bending in the licks that will probably take some time to get down, but once you have them under your fingers, you'll be shredding!

  • Lesson 2: Mr. Brownstone - Guns N' Roses - Guitar Lesson

  • Lesson 3: Sweet Child O' Mine - Electric Guitar Lesson

    Sweet Child Of Mine is Guns N' Roses most famous song, reaching number one on the billboard charts after its debut on "Appetite for Destruction" in 1988. This song has a very iconic introduction that revolves around the E minor pentatonic box. There's a lot of octaves and string skipping in this one, so you'll need to play with a very relaxed right hand and be able to strum just as effectively with upstrokes as downstrokes. There's a lot of first and second position chords that are standard to this early hard rock genre, as well as some open chords. The solo in this song uses heavy vibrato bending and slurs, as well as shifting pentatonic shapes, so there's a lot to practice to get it down. Slash's phrases in particular revolves around three strings that playing ascending or descending licks before moving to the next position and phrase which lets you break it down into sections to practice and really get under your fingers.

  • Lesson 4: Sweet Child O’ Mine - Acoustic Guitar Lesson

    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.

  • Lesson 5: Nightrain - Electric Guitar Lesson

With this lesson you’ll get full access to the riffs, licks and tricks that Slash played on this driving, forceful track. Make sure to bring your chops though, because the solo can get pretty hairy!

  • Lesson 6: Paradise City - Electric Guitar Lesson

    Paradise City is a great Guns N' Roses song from their debut album "Appetite for Destruction" released in 1987. This song starts with an acoustic style opening with large open chords and arpeggios. The really cool thing about Slash's playing is that he plays a chord and breaks it up into arpeggios or double stops while letting the other notes of the chord ring out, which is really unique and a bit tricky to pull off. The solo is a perfect example of Slash's lead playing style and really accentuates how he started his phrasing with his first finger. Most guitarists phrase with their ringer finger as the the target, but Slash used his first finger which fit his style of playing nicely into the pentatonic shape you'll be using in this song. There's a lot of rock and roll style vibrato that relies on more wrist than finger action, as well as wide bends that bend and release repetitively to create a unique vocal style vibrato. There's also a blues influenced string skipping concept that Slash adapted for rock music, pulling form his influences. You really hear it in the bridge where he uses descending 16th note patterns that repeat in different positions on the neck. There's a lot to learn in this one, so get your chops ready and lets get started!
