What songs do you consider to be the best by part

Recommended Posts

So basically all GNR songs feature vocals, lead, rythem and bass guitars, and drums and most feature keys/piano/synth. 

So what songs do you think have the best parts and why. Example I personally think the best bass line is on YCBM with the best vocal performance on Twat.

And I'm a fan of all the piano/synth arrangements.

Just off the top of my head, my favorites (not necessarily the best);

Vocals: There Was A Time (Honorable mention: Sweet Child O'Mine)

Guitar: Nightrain (Honorable mention: You Could Be Mine)

Bass: It's So Easy (Honorable mention: Chinese Democracy* can only really be heard clearly in the demos, since an extra guitarists contributions drown out Tommy sound on the album)

Drums: You Could Be Mine (Honorable mention: Mr. Brownstone)

Piano: Estranged (Honorable mention: This I Love)

1 hour ago, tremolo said:

Shackler’s is my def n°1 when it comes to vocals, it’s so damn effective and well crafted! The mean low register dominating the first part of the verses with another track an octavw higher, but lower in the mix. “I got an itchy finger” and it’s Axl in all its glory. The bridge after the solo has that insane high pitch that can pierce your fucking skull.

I think it is the best display of Axl’s vocals.


The rest, I don’t know, haven’t really thought about it, but off the top of my head, the bass intro to RNDTH is great.

Just ONE octave higher? It’s like 4 octaves higher!
