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) *It’s pretty tough to play this part (mainly Part III) if you keep the slide on your but from what I’ve seen myself and on videos, he just sucks it up and stretches. Must be he’s the best and I’m not.
