Just wondering if axl has much skill on guitar. He said in like 1990ish that he could play 2 strings so I'm assuming he meant power chords but he's been playing now for about 30 years at the very least. Should be pretty darn good by now. Are there any songs I'm missing besides dead horse and I think shotgun blues that he plays on?

He played the acoustic guitar on There Was A Time and the rhythm guitar on Madagascar

He have great collection of guitars, but i think that guitar is just his hobby.

I bet he's pretty good by now. Wish he'd play more. I saw him playing duffs bass in the 80s so I'm thinking he's more talented than he even shows

He said on Howard Stern in 1989 that he knew how to play "the top two strings" and said the same thing to Kurt Loder in 1990. 

Then in one of the 2008 chat sessions he said that on Madagascar he "just played some basic power chords." So even if he isn't better by now, at least now he actually knows the proper termonology.

Probably the case that he views it as a writing tool :Pas opposed to something he's too bothered about having a high level of proficiency on.
