Main Riff (No slide, Bridge Pickup, Distortion)
*Now for live performances, which I've seen front row, Slash wears his slide on his ring
for the whole song. In the music video you can see him at this point throw his slide up
the air and switch to playing it with his fingers. If you choose to play it with the 
then just play the intro again with distortion. I prefer it without because it sounds
little more aggressive.

Verse/chords parts (no slide, neck pickup, clean)
*Its pretty tough to play this part (mainly Part III) if you keep the slide on your
but from what Ive seen myself and on videos, he just sucks it up and stretches. Must be
hes the best and Im not.
