what amp are you using...what other pedals...what guitar?

to the best of my knowledge slash has never used a chorus pedal to play paradise city.

Slash had ****ty clean tone anyways...just let it go


But yeah, IIRC it's just a bunch of reverb/delay(I forgot which.)

thanks for the tips. I bought aguitar magazine and in there hey said that you need a chorus pedal. Whether that´s true or not could anyone of you guys post settings for a delay pedal that would recreate that sound (gpderek,do you know sumthin???maybe??????

on the record when hes strumming GCDC for the intro theres probably a touch of chorus...but live he never used it. for the intro riff...im pretty sure its just a jcm800 with lots of reverb.

ok i just checked a couple issues of guitar wolrd and guitar one that i have that transcribed paradice city. G1 says lightdelay, GW says chorus. no settings for either.

i'd try a very subtile slapback delay with a slight bit of modulation (chorus)

The cleans for GN'R aren't exactly incredible, honestly all you need is bridge pickup + quite a bit of reverb and a tiny bit of chorus.

Remember that Slash's live tone is always different to his studio tone. In the studio he uses a bunch of cool effects, so while he may not have a chorus pedal, he would've likely used a studio chorus for the album.

I'm don't remember the settings off the top of my head. However, he did not use a chorus in the studio, he used a fender rollaway amp. Like a dual reverb I think. But he does use a chorus for live shows. He used the mxr stereo chorus for the 2010 tour and the mxr analogue chorus this latest tour. Here is a link to a website dedicated to his setup if you have anymore questions

Useless necrobump. There's definitely a chorus in the intro. You can hear it. Don't use your eyes, use your ears!
