I read somewhere when Izzy first heard the Illusions records his noticed his guitar parts was mostly faded,does anyone know which songs his guitar is very clear on? example like the opening of Pretty Tied up and also which songs didn't he play on? I no Slash played all the songs on locomotive anymore Izzy didn't play.

If you read the CD's liner notes, it tells you everything you are looking for really.

You can clearly hear Izzy's guitar if you pan the speakers all the way to the left, but I agree it's a little faded.

That happens when you add piano and other instruments...
Piano and rhythm guitar are both midrange instruments. Appetite relied heavily on filling in the sound with both guitars...

Has nothing to do with Dizzy.
Slash said he had to ''double up'' for Izzy on the UYI records because Izzy didn't show up for a lot of the later recording sessions and didn't show up at ALL for the mixing sessions.
Also, Izzy complained that the UYI sounds like one Les Paul being played through a giant Marshall amp.
This is the same period where roadies or others would turn off Izzy's amp on the UYI tour.

Could it be that Slash was pissed off about Izzy's guitar being louder than his on appetite???

Slash was uncomfortable with the idea of Izzy being in the band in the first place or so I've read. He wanted to be GN'R's only guitarist.

Izzy didn't like the Marshall sound Slash brought with him on the UYI records. He said that he only spent two weeks recording his stuff on the album, and the rest spent around a year.

"On the last record I wasn't around for the mixes, and when they finished them you really don't hear my guitar at all. It was just a big Les Paul through a Marshall sound on most of the songs. Live, it got to the point where I didn't even know if the audience could hear my guitar."


When I see footage of Guns N' Roses, I see that fucking hunger and attitude. You could not fuck with those five guys. It was just raw. It was this lean, hungry thing on its way up.  - Slash

When we started we wanted to be the coolest, sexiest, meanest, nastiest, loudest, funnest band.  - Axl

I didn't say anything about Dizzy... Axl also played piano..so did Teddy....
From a producer's point of view, non-lead guitars, keyboards, and strings compete with each other in the same spectrum.

The best way to hear Izzy is to listen without the speaker/headphone that's on your right on. Izzy's guitar is always, ALWAYS on the left. When you do this you can actually hear his part in Dust and Bones and Live and Let Die, among others. His guitar part is "faded" because he recorded first, and it's like having a loud sound being drowned out by a bunch of other, louder sounds. There's also a cool Izzy riff in Bad Obsession buried under Slash's slide guitar.

Izzy was the meat and potatoes of GNR. Slash was just the beer, it just makes the meal better.

I think I read they turned his amp off because he was too intoxicated to play or something.
