Practice it slow and then speed it up as your fingers learn where to go. In all reality, practice is the best medicine for this.

It's not too hard. Neck pickup, clean channel, play smoothly.

take your time with it. i think that this is one of Slash's "easier" songs to play guitar on, so you should be able to manage. i would recommend giving the Guitar Pro version a listen, cause it is very helpful

have the tabs and a youtube of someone who knows how to play it running at the same time and take a small part a a time

here are two decent videos, the best I could find on youtube anyways:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R53iCZP2pK8
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sH9jJhNM6pc&feature=related

The two vary a bit and have cool parts and mistakes, but use them as guidelines along with tabs Thats imo the easiest way to learn a solo thats a bit tough for you

Good luck

Are you talking about the arpeggios in the intro and verses?

Those are the only bits i found difficult as i've got chubby fingers which touch other strings so those things take some extra refining from me.

Just remember Gb-Db-Cb at all times and you'll be alright. The arpeggios are all just those three chord shapes with a pull off here n there.
