  1. That's the only thing I dislike about his playing, he rarely surprises with his note/technique-choices. To me, nearly every of his solo sections depending on the genre sound (too much) alike because he keeps repeating the same licks over and over, more than any other guitarrist in Guns. If you like it, you could say he has a very high recognition factor, to me it tends to be a little boring. For the song: Sounded a bit random to me, to throw this little solo section in the song.
  2. I think its only Robin for two reasons (although I'm not entirely sure). The lead guitar work sounds a lot more like him than Bucket, rhythm guitar could be both. But the fact, that the track includes the piano breaks makes me think, that it could be more of a "band-track" with Robin that has been worked on with the line up before Buckethead joined rather than the more Bucket-esque tracks. But like I said, pure loud thinking, could be exactly the other way around, although I would be pretty surprised if the lead guitar isn't Robin.
  3. Sorry, I know exactly what you mean, maybe I phrased my post wrong. I just wanted to point out, that for me, that source holds much more credibility than for a example if I read something which came from gunsnfnroses. Of course he can only pass something on, which he's heard (or share his touring/marketing knowledge) which turnes out to be not true in the end.
  4. To be fair, that info came from Big Boss from the old sp1at-forum, who has definitely some connections as far as I'm concerned (quite a few stories came from him and gigger back in the day through interviews and such). Of course, he also posted rumours, which turned out to be not true, but on all forums, he is the one, who I put most faith in.
  5. That was probably the lowest point, I couldn't believe he was doing this song when I first heard it... Especially since the main solo could be played by anyone playing guitar for one year, there was no need for him to be in this. On a happier note, since you mentioned Slash's other collaborations, Street Child by Elan is still one of his best solos in his catalogue and proves, what he is able to, when he just slows things down a bit, contrary to his playing on recent tours.
  6. Ask Staff Anything!

    Quick question from me: I wanted to post about my band doing a few coversongs from GNR, Santana etc, played by us, which are on youtube but I don't want to cause any trouble. Am I allowed to post them nowadays? Thanks for your help!
  7. Two little things I just noticed: 1) Me & My Elvis reminds me structurwise extremely of Ten Years Gone with the building guitar melodies at the end of the song. 2) I don't think it matches perfectly but when I listen to the solo section of D-Tune at 3:10, I immediatley thought of his "funny" little solo section at RIR 2001 (at 1:34:10 in the clip), except that here the rhythm is much more organ-based.
  8. Eric Gales

    Since we talked briefly in another thread about him, I wanted to open a thread for Eric Gales, who is in my opinion the most interesting guitarist in the scene today. Here are a few of this jams with the other greats, enjoy if you have the time, incredible stuff! I feel like I see more and more talk of him but still not nearly enough given his talent.
  9. Man, thanks for bringing some recognition to Eric Gales, this guy is a monster, Slash doesn't even hold a candle to that guy (My opinion only :-D). To name some more obvious names: Derek Trucks, Guthrie Govan, ...
  10. Thank you! I found it again, sounds really good!
  11. These two are really amazing! I think the passage from 2:15 on in Quick Song is my new favourite music section of all the leaks, love the Trampled Under Foot-Keys with the overdriven Guitar. Little Tidbit, in the second solo, Robin uses the exact same guitarlick he uses in the first PC Solo live in 2002. Also towards the "Robin likes LZ"-comment: I remember seeing a video of him performing Ten Years Gone and Rain Song while his wife was performing to it, sounded also really nice! Also, hearing a little 5/4 in Guns is never wrong
  12. Listening to the new tracks, a quote from Bach came to my head, where he describes how Axl saw lyrical connections between songs (I guess it was about which song to put on which album). Maybe it's too far fetched but the "be a man"-lines in AS and HS and "weight on shoulders" in AS and Perhaps indicate something like that.
  13. Maybe I'm hearing things, but at 2:42 it almost sounds like a bad cut-sound? The track-length matches the ones on the CDs I think, but anyway.
  14. :-D I think that's the guitar line (with effects) I was talking about. Could very well be synth aswell, hard to say
  15. But it's a different version to the cellphone-clip, isn't it? At 1:25 there is a guitar missing which was in the 1 min 15 clip. On the other side - great great song!
