So, I just woke up and was thinking of doing solo of one of the first songs I learnt back in school - Stairway to heaven. And then I was searching on YouTube for backing tracks and browsing videos landed me to various other songs. At the end, it was Don't Cry solo. I was practically able to do this song back in school as it was much easier so I thought I would give it a try. So, practiced for about 10 times, almost forgot and had to look up for tabs and recorded with my iPhone camera. I realized the bends are not accurate but well, I was excited to put it out there. Classic is Classic! smile.gif

Well, this sounds great, after 10 minutes of work, I must say you owned it smile.gif Sure, bends could be more swifter, but hey, it's not bad at all.

What a great solo!! Slash has composed some of the greatest Rock solos ever!! Your take is really good but there are some bends that sound a bit out of pitch... Slash trick is bending slowly until he reaches the correct pitch.... If you play using this trick you'll sound even more like Slash.
