i dont. its harder to play it clean and separate all the notes. they always ring out together when i do that.

i usually dont.. but my teacher taught me that i should. probably because its the root note that helps it along, but thats probably only necessary when you play alone

i used to do in in the intro but i dont anymore, sounds better if you dont and can be heard more at higher volumes, i do bar the 12 on the first set of notes on the chorus because of the way i play it would be hard the hit the 2nd then 3rd then 4th string on the 12 fret right after each other

No, I try to separate every note as much as possible so it sounds smooth, but the notes don't bleed into each other.

I barre it sometimes. Mostly just in Hendrix songs. But in G'NR not so much.

is slash barring at 9 seconds?



Doesn't look like it, he just doesn't move his around much during the intro, probaly because he's trying to concentrate.

Slash has confessed to hating this song, because he could never play it when drunk. Also, notice how he is turned away from the audience and barely moves during the intro.

the opening always confuses me. Its not that is difficult, its not that the first note changes, its just playing the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over gets me. If you lose focus you'll mess the whole thing up.

I've always thought the difficulty of the intro is overhyped. The solo's are difficult, the intro is not.

i dunno... i don't think it's that hard to do it without barring. it sounds better when u don't bar.


wtf. in that vid. slash plays like he's completely tone deaf... the little bridge-ish parts are just... awful...

That's was kind of the point originally. He started playing it as a practise exercise and it somehow got pulled into a song. It's one of the reasons he doesn't like it, he he can't believe some dumb finger training exercise became one of the most recognisable licks in history.

Personally I don't bar as the the notes need to played seperately. I have started to use my ring finger to bar at the 14th fret at the end of the lick as thats a little easier than pulling the pinky back from the 15 to 14 fret on the e.

5 years of playing, and I've never played it

No. 12th fret barre on that confuses my fingers.
