The purpose of this thread is to list every GN'R song, and to give people an idea of whether the song is within their playing capabilities, and also provide tips for playing/getting the tone etc.

This will be a guitar thread, but if you want to create a bass or drum or whatever thread, go ahead.

Hopefully this will become a sticky thread.

Now I haven't been playing guitar long, so I'm going to be pretty useless with this thread. Still, I'll set it out and hopefully someone will take it from there:


The criteria

Beginner - Something someone could learn as their first song
Amateur - For someone who knows the basics of guitar playing (barre chords, hammer-ons & pull-offs, bends...)
Intermediate - For someone who has been playing guitar a couple of years and
Advanced - Hard songs that you'll need plenty of guitar experience for before tackling



Beginner songs


Move To The City
Album: Lies
Link to tab: see below
Playing tips:

Amp settings:
You should play it on an overdriven guitar but it sounds nice on an acoustic aswell. I'm only tabbing Slash's guitar, Izzy has some of his own riffs and interesting bits in the song I might tab them in the future

Advanced Songs

Sweet Child O' Mine
Album: Appetite for Destruction
Link to tab: http://www.snakepit.org/sweetcom.html
Playing tips:

"Sweet Child O' Mine"
Tune down 1/2 step:
(low to high) Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb
Moderate Rock d = 126? ? ?

? ? ?This is one of my favorite GN'R tunes because it's a song you can either strum along to on an acoustic or play on electric while showing off your lead playing ability.? The introductory guitar melody is not very difficult (I learned this part very early on while beginning to play guitar), however it is important to make sure that the notes don't ring together, but also don't sound too choppy.? Practice is the only way of achieving this.? Also, as this melody started out as a string-skipping exercise, it's important to make sure that you are able to accurately and quickly pick targeted strings even if they aren't adjacent to each other.? During the verse sections, Slash and Izzy lay down a ballad-type rhythm by arpeggiating the chords making up a D - Cadd9 - G - D progression.? Unlike the intro, you should try to let the arpeggiated figures ring throughout whenever possible.
? ? ? The chorus contains both a melody very similar to that of the intro and an A5 - C5 - D rhythm progression that should be played with a fairly choppy strumming pattern and a distorted sound.? This rhythm chord pattern transforms into an E5 - G5 - A5 - C5 - D5 - G5 progression partway through the solo.? The solo is probably one the hardest to tackle in the GN'R catalog in that there's a lot going on and some of these less distinct parts may be difficult to pick apart by listening to the track the first few times around.? When attempting the solo it is important to make sure that have mastered such techniques of whole and half-note bends, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and vibrato.? Really the rest of it is memorization and speed.? And remember that? with enough scrutiny and practice you can nail this entire song, start to finish, in no time.

Amp Settings: Not much to this - just pick a clean sound and dirty sound that seem close enough to the recording in your opinion.? Also, remember the use of the wah pedal during the latter part of the solo.

Thanks VolcomStone



Thanks GypsySoul

I think you got a really good idea here.? This kind of thread should really be a great help for beginners and also give the more experienced musicians here an opportunity to pass along their knowledge by helping others get over the rough spots by answering questions and/or giving tips on specific songs or riffs or whatever.

I, myself, am NOT a musician nor do I know how to read music ... BUT what I can contribute to get this thing going is to post stuff that I find in guitar mags and their writers comments/instructions.? So maybe from there youze'll have a starting point for discussing what youze find easy/difficult/confusing about a specific song.

In the August 2005 issue of Guitar One mag is GNR's version of KOHD which you listed under "Beginner songs" ... so in the next reply I'll post what? their guy says about how to play it and if youze want, later I'll post the music sheets.

Also, here's the riff for SCOM in the same issue and a pics of Slash in an ad and in the old GNR daze.

"Sweet Child O' Mine"
Tune down 1/2 step:
(low to high) Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb
Moderate Rock d = 126? ? ?Gypsy note:? that d is a music note (I think)

Intermediate:

The Blues
Album: Chinese Democracy
Link:http://www.heretodaygonetohell.com/board/index.php?topic=21313.0 (with mp3)
Playing tips: This is the first solo. It's not that hard, but you must pay attention to the tempo, it's not like a regular solo. Notice how Fortus fills up the ending of the solo. Your rhythm guitar player can't be late here. Also, Fortus goes with some power-chords ala radiohead (you know, with octaves, only the A and G strings) along with Pittman's orchestra-sound on the keyboards.
Gear settings: Gibson Guitars; Effects:RockTron Vodoo Valve and TC Electronic effects G-Force, Marshall head and cabinet. His sound can be emulated with a tube-screamer with a lot of drive. A good wha-wha (Cry Baby is enough) also can be used. But all you really need is to play with his feeling and soul. ok


Here's the tab for Robin's solo... I know it needs some fix here and there, but I think it's pretty much like that. There's also some tips with the pickups and wha-wha (Copy the tab to the notepad and it will be in the right way):

The Blues solo (by Voodoochild):

Starts with the neck humbucker:

E:--10/12\10--10--10/8--8h7p8-8h7p8-7----------------------------------------------------------|
B:-------------------------------------10-8-10-10b-10b-10b--10br10--8--8h10p8p6----------------|
G:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E:----------------------------------------------10-12--12b--12br12--10-------------------------|
B:--3\6--5/6\8--8/10--6h8p6---8\10--10/12----12------------------------------------------------|
G:--------------------------7-------------12---------------------------------------------------|
D:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E:--8\10--8p7h8--7-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B:-----------------8---(Cool\10/12--10br(10)\8--10-----------------------------------------------|
G:-------------------7----------------------------9--------------------------------------------|
D:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

With wha-wha:

E:-11~-10h11p10----------13~-11h13p11p10h11p10----------13\15~-13-15-17-18-17-17-15----18-22-24br24br24-|
B:-------------13-11-------------------------13p11----------------------------------18------------------|
G:-------------------12----------------------------12---------------------------------------------------|
D:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Switch to the bridge humbucker

E:-20-18-20\22-22br(22)-18-18-22-18-17-15-17-17br(17)--10br(10)--8-6---6-6h8-8~----8----8~-8~--|
B:-------------------------------------------------------------------7---------7b--7b---7--7---|
G:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


E:--13-12-10-----------------------------7---19------------------------------------------------|

G:--------------------12-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Right after Finck, Fortus fills:

E:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B:-----------------------------------------------------7h8-------------------------------------|
G:-----------------------------------------------------7---------------------------------------|
D:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Nobody can exceed 10,000 characters in a post.? Why were you copying everyone's replies into the first post anyways?? confused? ?Wouldn't it make more sense for you to get the discussion going by commenting on tips people aleady posted or asking questions about what help you might need, or about things you find difficult or easy?

Oh man, stop with this lame bitching. I submitted the blues tab - wich I did myself - and you don't even cared.

IMO, this thread should stay here for begginers who wants to search for GNR tabs. Maybe I'll do the tabs for the rest of The Blues and even some Rhyiad riffs...

The thing is...

I think that if you're a beginner, you shouldn't be playing GN'R songs. You should be learning your chords, and changing effectively between them. Okay. Maybe a simplified version of KOHTD or Used to Love Her would go.

Then when you're an amateur, and you know your basic chords and can change between them well, one should try to implement alternative picking to these songs and try to start improving on the timing.

Now after you've done that, you pretty much start realizing what you can, and can't do with the guitar at the stage of progress you're at (or at least some people do.. Some don't and end up uploading stuff in which they try to play fast as hell, but sound.. well.. not that good).

After this stage, let's say the intermediate or so. You'll prolly be able to somewhat crawl through every GN'R song, but to truly play any song well you have to be a true master of the guitar to play them well. To truly nail the bends, to really master the vibratos and most of all.. to truly make the songs your own so it's not just a 100% accurate copy of the original..

I for example. Am years away from that. I can only blame myself - I started playing too late and I have to live with it. The point of all this? I don't know if people really need the tabs and such to the harder songs. They can be found elsewhere. Or at least advanced guitarists don't need to be told that it's one of the more harder songs... They know. But I do think it's a good idea to let beginners, and amateurs know what songs they shoud start off with.

well i just got back off holiday and i have to admit - youre all lazy bastards.

i cant be arsed with this anymore if no ones gonna submit anything. if youre a mod and reading this, delete it (or can i delete it myself).
Oh man, stop with this lame bitching. I submitted the blues tab - wich I did myself - and you don't even cared.

IMO, this thread should stay here for begginers who wants to search for GNR tabs. Maybe I'll do the tabs for the rest of The Blues and even some Rhyiad riffs...

well then, if you're wiling to help then ill start this up again (probably better to make a new thread), you can submit tabs, we can use stuff thats already here, and i can sort out the layout and stuff and try to get hld of some sheet music

It's too much work to post each GN'R song (I'm too lazy  Roll Eyes) . If somebody requests a particular song, then we can do something...

I have a question about the Knockin on Heaven's door amp settings.  It says that it is set with Chorus, but I have always played with a bunch of Reverb, I just don't hear any Chorus on there, does any one else have any different settings for this?

The clean guitars have chorus.. The distorted ones don't.

OK Sweet Child O' Mine

Rhythm pickup - both tone controls rolled back to 0.

Unlike a lot of rock guitarists, Slash used rhythm pickup quite a lot for leads - check out some videos of Slash playing whatever song you want to learn so you can find out the position of the pickup switch - essential for the tone.
The most obvious addition you could make would be an EQ pedal, especially for Sweet Child. Slash used it to cut through the mix but it does help a lot to get good tone- i'm still figuring out how to use it and how boosting certain frequencies changes the sound.

Oh get a chorus effect for any clean sounds, especially in Paradise City, Knockin' On Heaven's Door, Don't Cry and Live And Let Die. A GnR trademark.

Just a couple of other things that you can put in this thread from Slash's fansite.

http://www.snakepit.org/answers.html

"The pickups I use are "Seymour Duncan" Anico II's not stock Les Pauls! Trust me, I have them in almost all my Les Pauls except for my vintage Pauls which I keep stock. I use the Alnico IIs because I really like them".

"I use 11-46 ernie ball strings"

"The 'distortion' on the beginning of 'Sweet Child O' Mine' is just a Les Paul with the rhythm pickup at full - through a 100 watt Marshall, and that's it. 'Estranged' is the same except the tone on the Les Paul is turned down to taste".

"I use a Boss EQ for a boost during solos in live situations and my guitar's volume knob to control certain subtitles. Also, I have a Boss delay for solos as well. Plus I switch between two Marshall heads, one for dirty and one for clean".

"The effect I use on 'Rocket Queen' live is called a voicebox. The guitar sound travels through the amp, then into the voicebox, then through a rubber tube into my mouth and is picked up by a vocal microphone, then the sound comes out direct via the PA.

"I cheated with the banjo (on Breakdown) and tuned it like a guitar to make it sound like I really knew what I was doing in one take"

No effects (on Knockin' On Heaven's Door), just a Les Paul and a 1958 Gibson Flying V through a Marshall and a little delay."

I always assumed it was chorus and I read on a guitar magazine it was chorus effect but maybe not?

"On "Don't Damn Me" I used my Les Paul's rhythm pickup for the solos and on "Locomotive" I used a Gibson Explorer (1958)".

"I would come for a reunion of GNR if it were the original band".?

Ok the last part was nothing to do with thread but I thought it was interesting how he was thinking 7 years ago.

Some more from http://www.snakepit.org/equip.html

"For dirty tone, the SLASH recommended settings are: Presence: 7, Bass: 7, Mid: 4.5, Treble: 7, Output Master: 6, Lead Master: 10, Input Gain: 6.5.  The SLASH Marshall should be tuned this way for the clean tone (SLASH recommendations): Presence: 0, Bass: 9, Mid: 3, Treble: 5 1/2, Output Master: 10, Lead Master: 0, Input Gain: 4. "

SLASH uses some effects when playing live. On stage he uses a M.X.R.10 Band E.Q for lead boost and feedback enhancement. When you see SLASH using the Wah-Wah pedal, he is using a Dunlop Rackmount Wah Wah system. He also uses a Heil Talkbox, and Boss DD-3 Digital Delay. SLASH also uses the DBX compressor and Yamaha SPX 900 for clean sound processing. He favors the Nady 950-GT Wireless System. All signals go through the Bob Bradshaw Custom Splitter System.
