In a new conversation with Music Radar, Slash revealed what was his main weakness as a guitarist.
Read what he said:
“Playing rhythm is one of the main ones. There are specific things I practice before a show; for the first 20 minutes, I won’t do anything too outrageous and just loosen up. I think it’s important to remember those techniques are a key part of what I play.
“You don’t want to be stiff when it comes to those right-hand patterns, so I might play any number of songs. ‘Pinball Wizard’ is always a good one!
“And then for lead stuff, I might try to find things that move up and around the neck, random patterns I’ve picked up from other players that sound interesting.
“It’s about finding the things that help you do whatever it is you do before you walk out there and play. Don’t think about set rules or anything; just try to focus on your weaknesses.”
New songs with the Conspirators
Slash has just released another clip from his album with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. This is “Driving Rain,” a song whose video shows the musicians turned into cloth dolls and is quite entertaining.

The guitarist talked a bit about the idea and the partnership with Stoopid Buddy studios, responsible for the work:
“The idea behind making an animated video for ‘Driving Rain’ is mainly due to the obscure subject of music, which influenced the directors to create very dramatic, dark and obscure scripts that were not at all amusing – not to offend them. So I wanted to create something that could be ironic and yet be obscure with an animation. We are all great Stoopid Buddy fans and they have created a great concept and treatment. We loved the video and it was brilliant. For your information, no dolls were harmed during the production of this video.”
