Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child o' Mine - Solo
Even though the opening is the most iconic part of Guns N' Roses' Sweet Child o' Mine, I wanted to test the limits of my wah pedal so I covered the solo instead. The softer, first solo is pretty straightforward, and the harder, second one is mostly a series of pentatonic bends and (in my opinion) overly-gratuitous use of the wah pedal.
Of all the guitar solos I've covered (so far), I definitely spent the most amount of time practicing this one. The initial two bars required a metronome, and the succession of 16th triplet hammer-ons/pull-offs and bends near the end was by far the most difficult part. It doesn't even sound that hard, but it's one of those paradoxical sounds-easy-but-difficult-to-play passages.
I did okay.
