Saul Hudson aka Slash is best known for being the former lead guitar player in guns 'n roses
. Later after leaving Guns' he played in "Slash' snakepit", which produced a rather uninteresting album. He now plays in Velvet Revolver
, who have also yet to release something interesting. Besides these bands, he played many sessions for other bands and people. He's written some of the most successful riffs and memorable solos in rock history during the Guns 'n Roses days.
Slash relies on the Pentatonic scales for many of his solos. As such, it would be very easy to write him off as a one trick pony, but that's not the whole story. Along with the pentatonic minor in blues box positions, he also sometimes uses the Aeolian and Dorian modes, the Mixolydian scale and pentatonic major scale. Slash often plays pedal-steel bends and uses the pentatonic major scale to create leads that have a country sound. You can hear this in Paradise City and Coma. Look no further than Sweet Child Of Mine to hear Slash's use of the Harmonic Minor scale. Slash is a great playing great melodies over a song's chord changes, especially during ballads. If you think about it, a good portion of Guns N' Roses' most successful tunes were ballads and Slash's playing was a huge part of their success (dinosaurrockguitar).
Also, he's the last true "guitar god" that will influence entire generations of players who care about lead playing. The badass "i don't give a fuck" attitude along with the swagger and heavy, ballsy blues-rock playing is an important part of his image. Infamous for loads of sex, drugs and rock 'n roll. He took that from the 70's from guys like Jimmy Page
and brought it to the spandex-filled, pretty-boy shredder era.
Made the Les Paul famous again in an era of super Strats and Floyd-Roses. Has a very reconizable sound. Nasty, buzzy and mean. He uses Marshall Slash Signature Model half-stacks exclusively. These amps are based on the Marshall Jubilee Anniversary series, a high gain Marshall that most tone freaks despise.
Slash' technique was already far surpassed in the glory days of GnR. But he wasn't about technique, it was all balls. In the end, that's been proven to be far more important then being able of putting out 64 notes in one second. Name one technique-driven shredder who made more interesting stuff then Slash did.
Slash, the only one who was able to impress me as much as Jimmy Page did.
