Slash is my favorite rock guitarist

He's a straight-up rock guitar player and probably my biggest influnce in rock guitar playing. His style is very blues-based which is really cool. He plays mean but with a lot of feeling. I like his playing when he was GNR the best, but I also like some of his solo and session work as well. Here's some of my favorite guitar songs that he does in no particular order: Nightrain, Starlight, Civil War, Sweet Child O Mine, Knocking on Heaven's Door, Patience, Back and Forth Again, Street Child, and Gotten.

Slash is awesome! GNR is always the work you look at and hold as the standard but his new albums are really great! songs like Starlight,Nothing To Say, Anastasia,Halo,No More Heroes,We Will Roam,Standing In The Sun....all amazing songs!

Yes, he really is. I love the song Starlight. That's my favorite off his first solo album. I also like By the Sword, Gotten, and Beautiful Dangerous. Standing In The Sun is pretty good as well.

I've never really listened to Velvet Revolver. One song that I like that they do is Fall To Pieces. I think that's what it's called.

Check out Sucker Train Blues by VR. That's a tight track, and he has a great solo on it.

I love his solo stuff more than most of GnR's catalog, save maybe Appetite. can't beat Appetite. Halo kicks so much ass. So does Carolina (bonus track off of Apocalyptic Love)

Yeah, I love Appetite and I love some of the songs off the Illusion albums too. Sucker Train Blues I'll need to check out. Thanks for the suggestion.

Not going to disagree as he's one of my two favourite guitarists as well (alongside Billy Duffy), but is there a point to this thread?

I didn't know a thread had to make points. I was just posting a thread about Slash.

Well yeah... there kinda has to be a point. A forum is a place of discussion. We can't really discuss the fact you like Slash...

Usually threads likes these get other fans to start talking about why they like a certain artist. That was the point of this thread. More of a "Hey, I like him too." type of thread.

I understand that not everyone is going to like everyone's favorite player in music. That's one of the things about music. Everyone has who they like and who they don't like. It's a personal opinion and preference.

As far as Guns N' Roses goes, Axl got fat and Slash pulled a Carrot Top.
