So, I'm a guitarist... looking for some tips...

Basically, I wanna play a bit of hard rock; Slash and Izzy Stradlin kinda style. I have learnt my favourite GnR tunes and I like the way that both of these 6 stringers play. I like the whole feel their riffs and licks give off, so I was wondering where do I start to adopt their style as my own. I have noticed that they have kind of blues influenced riffs, but it sounds so awesome!

So what kind of scales, chords and other little things should I start learning to walk in the direction of these two great players?

You won't need much.
Just learn your pentatonic scales, blues scales, and some minor scales.

thanks dude

No probs. Most of Slash's solos are just made up of runs out of those scales with a few tasty bends thrown in. Best of luck!

Make sure you can lay down a rhythm and keep it in key before you go trying to so "soloey stuff". Single note runs within a scale can be a rhythem too as long as they're in key, in time, repeating, and establish a key for the song. Experement with the scales but don't be one of those guys who just throws out endless single note runs without any rhyme or reason. Make sure you can adjust to the band, don't constantly make them have to adjust to you.
