I'm starting a thread just for questions and comments for Slash since Duff mentioned that the band reads the board and so it might be easier for them to find then individual topics.  Keep in mind...as far as we know Slash is not a member of the board at this time.

Hey Slash, if you ever drop in, just wanted to say I love your Godfather track.  Any chance you might one day do a whole album of solos?  That would be heaven!!!! :smitten:

I'd just like to know what he could advise me to do as a guitarist to better myself? Not just stating the obvious as to practice, but what tactics he could suggest?

Slash- I just wanted to tell you that I have been going to concerts for 20 years and have seen it all, but seeing you play your solos live was the sexiest and coolest thing I have ever witnessed. You are amazing, and the reason I play guitar.

By the way, what do you think of female guitar players???

Hey slash your truely a great guitarist. Your use of the pentonic and blues scale is amazing. Your style reminds me alot of jimmy page and more classic rock approch. Ive been playing for a year and love your style. Is there any tips that you can give me ? , like how to go about making a solo? How long did it take you to actually create your own solo?

Also

Do you still sit down and play old gnr tunes from back in the day sometimes? ( you dont have to answer if its a little to personal )

I play at least 6-8 hours everyday practicing everything and playing anything from bb king to zep and everything in between , i have a band and we are all very dedicated to it. Is it even possible for me to think of getting famous , at all , or is it something that is unrealistic? Im not your typical 13 year old guitar player , i know my way around the frets , but i mean i have loads more i need to learn. But im dedicated is that all that really matters?

Hey Slash,

I wanna ask a strange non-guitar related question.  I have recently (the lst 18 months) grown my hair to quite a long length and someone was messing around the other day pretending to cut it off.  I actually had a fuckin nightmare about it later.  If someone cut it I would be devestated and feel like I had lost my identity.

So, my question is - For someone who's identity is all about the Les Paul, the hat and the hair - what the fuck would you do if someone just cut it off, or if someone asked you to cut it for a charity you really believed in?  Can you ever see yourself cutting it off?  What about when it goes gray?

Anyone, I know it was a strange question but I thought it would be something different from the usual guitar based ones.

I'd also like to say thanks for sticking up for me at the London signing session when the security tried to take my bass away without Duff signing it - you and Duff rocked and I hope you liked my bands DVD.  Check out our website by clicking on the link:

Cheers man, keep inspiring us all.  And thank god for VR

Hey Slash!

Just a couple of questions.

On the Use Your Illusion 2 DVD you said GN'R were basically a glorified garage band, do you still believe this to be true?

Do you find it wierd gigging with a singer like Scott after being used to Axl?

P.S. You're a fcuking legend dude, you own!

Hey Slash what more can I say, you're definitely one of the last guitar heros out there and I'm glad I got to see you in Paris in September  8)

I could find a million guitar-related questions I'd love to ask you, but I'll just say I bought a Goldtop reissue Les Paul this summer thanks to you and I love it  :D  :D


Hope to see you (again!) in Paris someday  :wave:

A solo album would kick ass, I'd buy that in a quickie.
But all I have to say is...SLash u kick ass! The way you play is just so amazing that there's no words to express the feeling. You seem like a wonderful man and thank you and V.R. for being so good to your fans. As kool as your are you still remain humble and that is a great quality to have. You're just an amazing person and I wish you the best of anything. Y'all kickass and u rock!!! Love and kisses to the best guitar player in my book and to all his fans :D
