Thanks for pointing this out again!

Of course, that still didn't stop some from saying stuff like "Slash made that song 1000x better by adding a whole new original sleazy riff to it that sounds so much more GnR!"

 

Right on. Yeah, Better is my favorite GN'R song and even I missed the connection. 

When I heard the new intro at the Vegas show, I was like" well fuck. Way to improve what I already love Slash & Duff!". 

Then soon after someone on here was like "um, they didn't improve anything, they just copied the bridge to the beginning". 

I feel really dumb lol

The intro jam is just the bridge of the song. It's the groove under the part right before "I never wanted you to be so full of anger" bridge. 

Wow, had no idea.

I love the intro and thought Slash added/wrote it.

Maybe Duff didn't really add much, but Slash made the double bends and palm-mute riff that plays before the original Robin riff kicks in. The original structure of the chord progression is surely borrowed from the original song (and if I recall correctly, Richard said the idea for the intro was from a Brain remix), but Slash made an arrangement that sounds different enough.

I love the original repeating bridge in Better. It highlights how amazing the band at the time of recording was. Very hard, I dig.

Agreed. I love it too. With Better being my all time favorite GN'R song, I was stunned when I didn't notice that about the bridge / new intro.

It's definitely not verbatim, I'd say more re-worked. Or perhaps the part people are talking about is buried to where I didn't make the connection.

They put '12pm UK time' too, when they meant '12am'! 

I tuned it at 12pm obviously, and realized! How can they not get the times right?! 

Axl's clock again..... :D

He used to do operatic warm ups

The last 2 have been pretty good, it's no surprise the best selects have been from 2016. My Michelle and TWAT were the highlights, it's great we finally got a pro-shot song with Steven.

If they do a North America 2016 compilation, hopefully they include OTGM with Adler, and Patience from Glendale.

Patience from Glendale.

That's a highlight of the whole tour for sure.

There's a few more of those... Estranged from Mexico City (night 2) comes to my mind.

The mix even sucks on My Michelle.. This band literally can't do anything right.. I had high hopes after the last Selects but this mess sure isn't going build any excitment for the tour...

I am sure it was a great show (Axl sounds pretty good) but again a terrible mix and they fail to capture the energy of the crowd which I am sure was absolutely out of this stratosphere

I'd like to think they are saving all the great production and mix for some kind of offcial release.. But it has been 5 1/2 years..

Can't even finish this one.

This might be the worst mix yet (aside from Locomotive)..  The drums are obnoxious.. Terrible in Brownstone and even worse in the YCBM intro so far... Jesus..

I agree the drums are always way too loud

It's probably for the best that you didn't make it to Don't Cry... :lol:

Agree about the mix though, the sound on most selects has been poor.

It would've been great to get one of the US performances with Steven, but it's cool we got one at all tbh. This wasn't as good as the other 2016 selects but it's still miles better than the 2018-19 videos.
