I think it can work. I won't post the video here, but I recorded a cover of this song played in a regular fretted guitar and IMO sounded good enough for the rhythm guitar track.

You should send the link to Slash :D You can definitely get into the ballpark (I have played it a few times too), but the fretted guitar just has a different sound and feel that you can't really get around. With a slide that's as close as I've heard it. Send me a link though, love to watch it :) 

I don't even think Slash knows where the ballpark is located though! swing and a miss!

Riot shields or bust.  

Cant beleive its taken the band 3 months to do this, and Fernando only agreeing to do something like this when told to him directly by the fans. If GNR want to look at being a top tier band this

LARGER! LARGER TEXT!!! I CAN'T READ!!!

I actually really like what Slash does with 'Chinese Democracy'. It's the best out of all the CD songs.

His renditions of 'This I Love 'and 'There Was A Time' & 'Catcher In The Rye' are absolutely dreadful to my ears. I have been extremely disappointed in Slash because of this. I had great expectations and he's shit the bed.

'Better' was a nice surprise, however Axl ruins it with his vocal delivery 99% of the time.

You can add axls crap vocals to TIL. It should be dropped from all future setlists.

Someone with Instagram, send him a list of NA 2016 shows.

If the selects had views like that they would be much cooler...

Like I posted in the other thread

Out Ta' Get Me  and My Michelle with Adler in Cincinnati...  Footage from South America with good shots of those crazy fans.  The Minnesota Paradise City.. That was the only one where Axl didn't sing over Slash leads near the intro.... Slash's solo from his birthday..  I know they released Out ta Get Me already but if they have superior performances of songs, they should go for it.  Like It's So Easy and Brownstone.. The ones they posted were weak. A killer Jungle would be cool. Did they do one of those yet? If so, it was obviously forgettable...

Would also love them to crop these things into single songs after.  That way I would share the select few good ones.. I tried sharing the first couple and most of them were so bad that people didn't like them.

Something had to make way for Shadow and Slither

Slither should go... well if Axl decides to dramatically improve how he sings it, it should stay because ordinarily that song makes crowds go crazy! when GNR play it, it's the equivalent of running when you're in a swimming pool😄

They could pick any show from the NA 2016 run and get fairly strong versions of Jungle, LALD, Nightrain, etc. There's a pro-shot Jungle from Download Festival that was posted months before the Selects video... it was definitely forgettable though.

I wouldn't share either of the first two, but the most recent one was pretty good. I don't know if anyone's split the videos up, but I can send you the remastered audio files if you want.

I wish they'd quit fucking around with 5-6 song videos and just do a proper live release. Throw a full show on youtube, warts and all.

That would be the best way to do it. Start with Download and then anytime they want to upload a new video just upload a new show instead of a Selects video.

For me with Slash on Chinese I would say,

Good- Better, Chinese (I'm not saying they are better than the album versions, but he sort of thought these two out a little more and I think they are good renditions. They were highlights for me in 2016 when Axl was good and they seemed more fresh)

Okay- This I Love, Prostitute, Madagascar, TWAT (TiL is pretty disappointing because we all expected Slash to do a NR style monster on it. I think some shows in 2016 got really close to that and had some amazing solos. Then after a few reunion shows he lost all interest in the song and it falls to the "underwhelming category". Prostitute, Madagascar, and TWAT all fall in the "its fine" category. He doesn't stray too far from their album versions. Kind of boring, but not bad to listen to. If Slash and Duff are going to play Chinese songs, I'd rather they made them different but that's just me. 

Underwhelming- Sorry, Catcher in the Rye (He does stuff on Sorry but then the leads come and he noodles too fast most of the time. Same with Catcher)

ok, nice for what it's worth,  but would have been a smarter move to put out some new selects today on the "release anniversary day" with only UYI tracks
