Main Riff (No slide, Bridge Pickup, Distortion)
*Now for live performances, which I’ve been front row to; Slash wears his slide on his
ring finger for the whole song. In the music video you can see him at this point throw
his slide up in the air and switch to playing it with his fingers. If you choose to play it
with the slide, then just play the intro again with distortion. I prefer playing it
without because it sounds a little more aggressive.

Verse/chords parts (no slide, neck pickup, clean)
*It’s pretty tough to play this part (mainly Part III) if you keep the slide on your
hand, but from what I’ve seen myself and on videos, he just sucks it up and stretches. Must
be why he’s the best and I’m not.

Solo (over Part I 2x) (neck pickup, distortion, with a little boost)

Killer Song by Slash that not a lot of people know very well. I noticed there is
basically no good tabs for this song on the internet so I hope this helps a lot of 
people. I
put a lot of time into it, so let me know if you see anything that I’m not.

***10/13 finally fixed the intro! Was a bit wack all this time!!!
