I don't want you to play me a riff that's going to impress Joe Satriani; give me a riff that makes a kid want to go out and buy a guitar and learn to play.

The hardest thing about it is the timing.Most tabs I've seen are pretty accurate.My son learned it a few months ago and it took him ages to to get it right.Its just one of them things that if your timing is off it just sounds all wrong.I would suggest learning the tab as its written and play it slow until the notes become second nature and you don't need to look at the tab anymore and then work on the timing/feeling to get it right.Don't worry if it sounds nothing like it when you play it slow.
As Axl Rose once said "All you need is just a little patience" (sorry!)

Good Luck

np man, we're all here to help, right?

yeah, it seems that very first part is the most debated part of that song. i originally learned it up around the 12th fret, which was really hard to do on the guitar i had. then i found that tab and it made it a lot easier, though, maybe not as correct lol

This song helped me so much with alternate picking. I just played this song (or the riff anyways) for like 3 weeks straight. Sweet dude. Good luck.

The secret to that riff played a la Slash, is to barre the D and G strings at the twelth fret with your index finger, and go from there. That finger then won't need moving for the whole of the intro. (Just pointing it out because if someone had done the same for me when I was learning it, I would've saved a lot of time - I was only just starting out when I learned this one and didn't know to barre it)

I'm not a fan of GnR but Slash is talented. Anyway check this site out it's a little ad heavy but not annoyingly bad.
