Album: UYI 1 & 2
Transcribed by: slashjunior

It is quite a complex song with two guitars, you can play just guitar 1 parts
in the chorus and verse then play the solo but it won't sound as good.


I have used the key:
(1) - Guitar 1 (Izzy)
(2) - Guitar 2 (Slash)

Tuning - Drop 1/2 a step

This took me ages to work out like changing the balances on the speakers to
get the different guitar parts. Well it sounded pretty good to me and this is
how me and my band play it, and it sounds accurate.

INTRO (1) - Just play this moderately slowly and use economy picking (sweep)

INTRO (2) - This is the bit Slash plays with shit loads of feedback, and hold
            it there through INTRO 1 (I saw Slash play it like this live)

VERSE (1) - This is just repeated over for the rest of verse (similar to intro)
