You should be able to work out the backing for the verses, and there's no
way I'm typing the solos in!  As for effects... well, Slash has distortion
(Marshall Jubilee stack), delay (added at the console) and Wah for the final
solo (Crybaby).  I think Izzy just has distortion.  Oh yeah, they probably
have a bit of chorus for the backing behind the verses.  If people really want
I can type in the backing but I'd have to look it up at home.

                    *    Guns n' Roses        *  
                    *Tabbed by David Harrison *
                    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*

This solo took me about 28 hours in all to tab, and hopefully now I have 
got the tab note perfect or at least very close to it. Seeing as I spent
this much time tabbing this solo it would be nice to hear what people 
think of it so that the next tab I do may be better or more understandable.
Mail me on 106051.3350@compuserve.com.If you feel brave enough to attempt this tab 
then good luck to you! Go for it!!!

feesh (report)

great job - at the end, the 'where do we go now' , try Em, G, A and B in an ascending scale and it works, with a B back to an Em to close it out...
