Slash. Electric Guitar (Overdrive).
Tip: Use Neck Pickup, and tone almost null on the guitar.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Notes:
In this tab you will find the necessary to learn this song, including symbols used in standard tablatures to help us understand the
guitar sounds.
I recommend you also to use your ear to assimilate what the tab says; it will help you to learn the song faster.
These are the symbols I use in my tabs:
~~~~
/
h
p
b
r
.
[]
()
PM
x

These symbols give you an idea of for how long the notes must sound.
Slide (the “=” symbol may be used next, just to give an idea of the duration of the sliding)
hammer-on
pull-off
bend
return (always after a bending)
Means you play the note and then stop the sound (use the ear to figure out what I mean)
These symbols highlight a pinch harmonic note (artificial harmonic).
These symbols highlight a natural harmonic note.
Palm Muting (Right hand placed over the strings while playing them, just a little bit, next to the bridge)(The notes that
must be palm muted are always highlighted over the tab).
Palm mute (Left hand) you don’t play notes, just use the right hand to strum the highlighted string/strings and mute those
strings with your left hand. The left hand mutes on the place that you’re working at on that moment.

Example of another case:
(7)b9r7
On this case, it means first you bend the string on 7th fret till you reach the 9th fret note, and then you play
the string, and let the sound return to the 7th fret note.
