Well, it might not be the most technical hard, but Estranged can be quite challenging due to the length of the song, and that it has no defined verse or chorus. It has a lot of parts and a lot of changes throughout making it a somewhat hard song to remember.

I agree with Estranged being hard because of the length, but I do find the main solo of Paradise City quite challenging...I do get the gist of it however.
#5
Yeah, Paradise can be a hard one, especially the solo at the end, not because it is complex, you can pretty much just improvise in the key of G IIRC, but it's quite long and somewhat fast, making it a solo that can make you cramp up after a while.

Dude, are you serious? The Nightrain solo is very, very easy.

Hardest GnR song... I can honestly play them all (solos and all), and I'll say the easy winner is Locomotive.

Yes, I was serious. And congratulations, you're an incredible guitar player if the Nightrain solo is "very, very easy" for you. Go out and buy yourself a medal.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but you can easily learn that solo. Anyone can. Just break it down into managable parts and you'll soon see that it's not as difficult as it sounds. If you need help with it, let me know and I'll be glad to offer any help I can.

Nightrain is pretty difficult, and the last solo in Paradise City is pretty hard if you play it note for note. It's very fast, and has some hard parts. It took me a while to learn both, but can play them both pretty good now. Nightrain is a great solo to learn for anyone looking to get out of the penatonic box, but still sound bluesy and classic rocky.

i would say sweet child, only because it was an excersice slash made up to get better. so if it's an exercise, it's kind of hard, and to keep each of those notes well defined for the whole intro can get tough.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Garden Of Eden, especially the live version which goes on for an extra minute and a half - no one single part of it is omgimpossible, but just trying to keep up with the pace for the whole thing is one of the most intense tests of stamina you'll come across.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I'd say Locomotive. It took me like, a month to work that out exactly on guitar. Shame I've forgotten it.

Oh well, it's my favourite GN'R song.


EDIT: And don't you think that 'playing with feeling' is getting really cliché nowadays? Seriously, every solo has to be played with 'feeling' or is just isn't right these days.

Oh well. It's not my problem.

no.

most solos nowadays are just really fast with no emotion or no solos at all.

I know that, because I slag tons of people off for it!

Anyways, it's just when I saw people saying Bullet For My Valentine have the most emotion in their songs, and they 'tried to play it, but it just didn't sound right, they didn't have enought emotion', I knew it became cliché. Not that BFMV are bad, it's just if you wanted to play hald their songs, you would be an angry bugger.

Slash is a very gifted guitarist and playing his songs is not easy. Patience is one of the easiest you will come across. Welcome To The Jungle i have no trouble with. Sweet Child O Mine is not hard to play if you improvise the high speed parts, the rest is fairly slow and is easy to play. November Rain can be hard especially the 3rd solo. of all of Slash's Legendary Solos, I think Paradise City would have to be the hardest. I have seen alot of slash impersonators and GNR tributes, and they all Improvise the outro solo to Paradise city. I am suspicious that Slash himself does as well.
