GUNS N' ROSES, APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION. GUITAR TABLATURE

 

Guns N' Roses emerged from the turbulent yet fertile L.A. club scene which was the spawning ground for Van Halen, Quiet Riot/Randy Rhoads, Motley Crue, Ratt and Poison. Beginning with a small local undergound following, they rapidly garnered a greater public awareness with their raw no-nonsense sound and energetic rock 'n' roll feel. Their appearance and subsequent popularity in 1987 was concurrent with a perceptible shift in audience taste towards more direct and more emotional forms of rock - a reaction against the slick over-calculated pop/rock and the technically demanding metal fusion of the early and mid 80's. In this regard, Guns N' Roses advocate and deliver a musical presence which is the very essence of rock - rebellious, immediate and evocative. The music invites, indeed insists on, audience participation and involvement on a purely gut level. The sound of Appetite for Destruction reveals an evolutionary link with the beginnings of modern rock. Sprinkled throughout the Guns N' Roses offerings are allusions to well-established and unmistakable '60's blues roots. The vocabulary of the blues / rock tradition of the British dynasty of the Yardbirds, Cream and Led Zeppelin is apparent in the guitar work of lead guitarist Slash, while the rough, aggressive rhythm work and powerhouse song riffs show the influence of the Kinks, early Stones and Aerosmith. These central elements coexist with hints of punk rock (in the pronounced chant-talk vocal approach of the verse in "It's So Easy" and the unabashed expletives found in the lyrics of "You're Crazy" and "Out Ta Get Me"), '60's psychedelic music (in the raveup jamming of the ride out outro solo of "Paradise City" and guitar-generated sound effects in the second guitarsololinterlude of "Welcome to the Jungle," in which stratospheric slide guitar adds a spacey quality to the proceedings) and vintage heavy metal (in the driving rhythm grooves, sustaining distorted guitar tones and visceral power chording throughout). As in virtually all classic hard rock, the compositions of Guns N' Roses are essentially riff based. The riff, probably the most fundamental structural component in rock songwriting, is generally constructed from a strong repeating thematic unit which succeeds in grabbing the listener with its accessibility and immediacy. In the music of Guns N' Roses, the riffs are well constructed - their compactness making them ideal for elaboration. The guitar orchestrations and harmonizations are remarkable. No tice in "Rocket Queen" the melody-versus-rhythm counterlines in the intro, slide guitar timbres in the solo, and the numerous texture and dynamic settings employed – full forte ensemble, spacious arena-like guitar and rhythm accent accompaniment, and clean tone picked arpeggiated guitars. The harmonized guitar lines are often unpredictable and interesting, exploiting a number of interval relationships. Note the ambivalence between major and minor in the parallel harmony of "Welcome to the Jungle" as well as the variety of treatments applied to the intro riff of "My Michelle," from a light airy statement over quasi-rubato guitar chordal arpeggiations at mezzo forte to a loud metallic answer phrase (reminiscent of early Black Sabbath) harmonized in unison and then parallel thirds. In discussing his personal guitar approach to the Guns N' Roses material, lead guitarist Slash admits to a preference for improvisation. Citing guitarists Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, Joe Perry and Angus Young as primary influences, he feels an extemporaneous plan of attack lends more life and energy to the music. Slash generally tends to elaborate on and re-develop the solo content on stage, except for his "signature solos" (those moments which originally on record produced a definite recognizable thematic impression.) A definitive example of his lead guitar playing is the extended outro in "Paradise City." Here, he builds chorus upon chorus of relentless guitar improvisations over a fiery double-time rhythm feel. Starting with imitative paraphrasing of the vocal chorus melody he continually gathers momentum, finally reaching a high energy climax emphasizing fast riffing, various major and minor pentatonic, blues and diatonic combinations and sinewy string bending. An important point offered by Slash was made in regard to compositional technique. The band writes together, pooling their collective resources and influences, resulting in a multi-faceted yet cohesive output. Bassist Duff "Rose" McKagan, for example, having previously played in a punk group, brought his influence to the tune "It's So Easy." Izzy Stradlin' (second guitarist) and Slash originally created the riff of "Mr. Brownstone" on acoustic guitars, and the timbre of wah wah electric guitar evolved later. The first draft of "You're Crazy" was initially played on acoustic guitar and at a much slower pace (almost a half- time shuffle) but evolved into the uptempo boogie-meets-pu nk groove captured on the LP. There is constant rethinking and experimentation at work within their arranging and composing framework. For Appetite for Destruction, Slash recalled that he favored his "Gibson Les Paul and old Marshall half stack with a minimum of effects." Occasionally, a chorus unit was added sparingly to process cleaner guitar picking passages (as in the intro to "Paradise City") ora vintage Dean Markley talk box (which can be heard trading phrases withstraightguitarin "Anything Goes') or a crybaby wah wah pedal was used (as in "Sweet Child O' Mine").

GUNS N' ROSES

 

Introdudion

Hard rock hasn't been the same since Guns N' Roses made their impact last year. In a

decade dominated by over-produced power pop, extremely stylized glam metal and synthesizerladen

new wave, the Gunners have broken every rule-returning to the essence and core of rock

'n' roll itself. With their well-turned blues riffs or their solid rhythm grooves or the inescapable

emotion lurking in every track, they are irreverent, inconsistent and uncompromising, but

irresistible, incalculable and unavoidable. However, like their predecessors-The Stones, The

Who, Aerosmith and AC/DC, they have transcended the role of music-maker/trend setter to

become the most visible and most compelling voice of youth, rebellion and counterculture

lifestyle. They have become a phenomenon to be experienced, not just sounds to be heard--a

necessary prerequisite for rock 'n' roll greatness.

Hard rock hasn't been the same in Los Angeles since Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction

attained multi-platinum status. Their blues-based compactness, simplicity and riff-oriented nononsense

songwriting approach have spearheaded a movement towards the rock of the 90's.

The signings of Faster Pussycat, L.A. Guns (at one time, half of Guns N' Roses), Jet Boy and

even Jane's Addiction indicate a perceptible industry response to the phenomena. Like the

attention accorded to post-Van Halen bands (Motley Crue, Quiet Riot, Ratt and Dokken) in the

early 80's or the fascination with everything English following the Beatles' arrival in the 60's, the

focus these days is on the music pouring out of the underground street scene in Hollywood.

Hard rock won't be the same now that Guns N' Roses have released Lies in 1988. The LP

combines the early independent set Live Like a Suicide (1986) with newer tracks recorded in

1988. The contrast of the high-energy punk-cum-metal mood of the Live ... cuts with the gentler

informal acoustic moments is typical of Guns N' Roses: surprising, unusual, striking ... and never

boring. In their unmistakable iconoclastic fashion, they have echoed the individualistic intentions

of their forebears-The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks, The Who. Led Zeppelin. They operate

without the restraint imposed by cliche formulas, and succeed in presenting an authentic glimpse

of their musical world ... they are real. The true aficionado of rock will appreciate, indeed relish,

every subtle nuance of their performance-which hasn't been punched in, cleaned up, tweaked or

edited out.

The Live ... tracks, "Reckless Life," "Nice Boys," "Move to the City" and "Mama Kin," capture

the sort of excitement Guns N' Roses produce on stage. These are sounds which got the band

noticed in the competitive and overcrowded L.A. club circuit. The eclectic blues/rock-metal-punk

 

element runs through each song as a unifying thread-an element clearly recognized now as

Guns N' Roses' style. Check out the heavy riff of "Reckless Life" (Rhy. Fig. 1) which rivals the

output of AC/DC, or the blazing intensity of the song's guitar solo with its odd modal mixtures (B

Mixolydian and B major penatonic versus B blues and B Dorian). The notes blur the major/minor

relationship and defy categorization. Another point of musical interest in the Live ... tunes is the

singular chemistry between Slash and Izzy resulting in that elusive, loose-but-tight, two-guitar

interaction. This type of interaction is what also distinguishes some of the best work of The

Stones and Aerosmith. Evident throughout Guns N' Roses repertoire, a definitive example of this

rapport can be heard in "Move to the City." Here, the two guitars are foils for each otherconverging

and diverging with overlapped and contrasting riff figures of double stops, diad bends,

single-note phrases (as in the verse figures) and muted lines. The use of wah-wah pedal in the

solo is characteristic of the sparse but effective processing of Guns N' Roses' guitar sound. Note

also the gutsy slide guitar employed in "Nice Boys" and the tremolo bar phrasing in "Reckless

Life" (Solo) and "Move to the City" (Solo). The slide guitar has remained a staple in Slash's style

("Welcome to the Jungle" and "Rocket Queen," for example) but the tremolo bar is gone-Slash

swears by stock Gibson Les Pauls.

The remaining four numbers, "Patience," "Used To Love Her," "You're Crazy" and "One in a

Million," might be described as Guns N' Roses' answer to Rubber Soul (The Beatles) or Beggar's

Banquet (The Stones). The setting is distinguished by a shift to an acoustic guitar-based texture

and the mood is almost folksy country-rock. This is in stark opposition to the relentless hard rock

of the Live ... tracks. There is overt acknowledgement of the acoustic guitar motor-drive rhythm

playing of Pete Townshend and Keith Richards, as well as coy references to the music of The

Eagles, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. The guitar orchestration of

"You're Crazy" (compare this version to the faster punk-inflected rendition on Appetite for

Destruction) and "One in a Million" combines electric- and acoustic- guitar timbres skillfully. In the

former, a clean twangy electric tone is blended with the brisk acoustic strumming (largely a

propulsive sixteenth-note groove) of the rhythm guitar, and in the latter, a distorted electric guitar

provides the driving rock 'n' roll background part, with the acoustic guitar taking the solo spot.

"Patience" (a genuine rock ballad) explores the signature two-guitar interaction with purely

acoustic colors and offers a melodic country-blues flavored acoustic solo (a la Joe Walsh). "Used

To Love Her" (a tongue-in-cheek sardonic "modern folk song") tastefully joins electric (clean tone)

and acoustic rhythm-guitar work with a gutsy "chicken pick in'" approach in the overdubbed

acoustic solo lines. This solo seems to have more in common with Albert Lee, Roy Flacke or

Jerry Reed than Angus Young, Joe Perry or Jimmy Page.

Hard rock hasn't been the same since Guns N' Roses ... but it has been alive and well.
