Izzy Stradlin’s guitar talents were often overshadowed by those of his Guns N’ Roses partner, Slash.
But these isolated guitar tracks from “Welcome to the Jungle” clearly show Stradlin’s brilliance as a rhythm guitarist. From his groove to his phrasing to his syncopation with the drums, it’s obvious that Stradlin was doing much of the heavy lifting that supported Slash’s brilliant soloing.
Speaking of Slash, you can hear his solos in this clip as well. Enjoy.
