I guess I'll start off with the obvious. What are some practice exercises you'd recommend to improve technique?

Also, Sweet Child o' Mine was the first song I ever played live. Is it true that you've always disliked that riff?

Oh my sweet god its slash.

My question: Do you think learning music theory is needed? If so what are the main points people should look into?

ALSO is there any way you can take a picture of yourself holding a piece of paper saying HI Chris.T because that would be the most awesome thing i will ever see..thanks for doing this Q+A.

Who are your favourite new bands to come out in the last few years? (I read somewhere that you were a fan of Zico Chain?)

First of all it's an honour to have this opportunity to ask a question, and what I would like to know is:

Which of the songs on your new album are you most proud of?

Around the time of the "Use Your Illusion" tour, you remarked that your setup was so complex you didn't know how to turn it on. Has it simplified since then?

My question : How did you work on your solo techniques to get amazing? I've been playing about 3 and a half years now and my solo speed isn't getting any quicker.

Oh and please come to the UK sometime, London preferably
