  • Hi GMC-ers!

    This time I'll try to cover one of Slash's most famous guitar solos.

    This is the first solo in "November Rain". It's around a minute long, and it has an incredible vibe to it. Technique-wise it is very simple, and Slash shows us how to do a solo in the "less-is-more" style. Only two scales are combined here, the A minor and the A pentatonic scale.

    For this lesson the following techniques were used:

    Bending
    Vibratos
    Slides
    Hammer-ons
    Pull-offs

    I used the same tuning as Slash used, namely the guitar is tuned to Eb:
    Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb.

    This is only the first solo, the next two will follow shortly.

    Have Fun!

    -Zsolt
