long ascending runs - Slash


Hi to everybody,
anybody got an idea how Slash builds his longer, ascending scalar runs?
I love that "not-so-fluent" legato sound with percussive notes.. it's got a bit of unpredictable notes in it, maybe chromatic passing notes, so it sounds just more interesting to me than the typical 200nps runs l Petrucci.
Anybody got hints/ideas?
Thanx a lot!
Dino

Re: long ascending runs - Slash


There's an ascending run at the end of Paradise City. Not sure if that's what the OP is refering to.

Re: long ascending runs - Slash


for example the ascending run in "Don't damn me"... it's not the usual 3-nps-stuff, but more "complicated" and impredictable sounding. The question is: this tab is correct? How does Slash construct those kind of runs?

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------| |--------------------------------------------------------------------------| |--------------------------------------------------------------------6-----| |--------------------------------------------------------6h7p6---6-7-------| |----------------------------------------7h9p7h9--6h7h9--------9-----------| |--------------------5h7-5-5--7--5h7-9-9-----------------------------------|

[ code ] tab [ /code ] makes your tab look better.

Re: long ascending runs - Slash


for sweet child o mine he is tuned down a half step:

The key being E minor, Slash mainly plays E minor scale (= aeolian mode ), E-F#-G- A-B-C-D. In the beginning, as well as in the fast section, Slash also relies on E harmonic minor (E-F#-G-A-B-C-D#) for his licks. If you are unsure which note to reach to when bending, just pick the next note in the scale, as a rule of thumb.Also E Pentatonic minor and lots of wah and bends and pre bends and releases good luck with it

Re: long ascending runs - Slash


also the ending solo of "Give in to me" (with Michael Jackson) has a fast ascending run that has a very distinctive sound.. it's fast, but with small brakes (I think) in it that make it sound interesting...
Code:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
------------------------------------------4-4h5---4-5-7-4h5p4---4-5/7/9--- 
--------------------------5h7---4h5----4h5------7-------------7----------- 
----------------5--8h9--7-------------7----------------------------------- 
-7-h8--5--7--8------------------------------------------------------------
any help?

Re: long ascending runs - Slash


A lot of guitar players or musicians, Slash included, builds long ascending/descending scalar runs by connecting small motifs diatonic, rhythmic, chromatic, etc. Passing notes would also be effective since it gives you some kind of character or originality in a way. If you have a small exercise containing 3 to 5 notes or more, try doing it ascending or descending in scale then you would have a long endless scale run! Samples would be sweet child, 99ways by megadeth, or colorado bulldog by mr. big. hope this helps!

Lick Library has several amazing DVDs where Danny Gill ( this dude is terrific teacher ) is teaching all Slash's famous songs note to note. You should be able to buy download failrly cheap but ......if you familiar with torrents ......I didn't say this LOL ))))

Re: long ascending runs - Slash


Another top player who used such runs pretty often is Dimebag ...."Cemetary Gates" has amazing lick ....and you would be surprised how simple is to play that one.
