RICHARD AND SLASH TALK ABOUT ARRANGING THE GUITAR PARTS

With the lineup changes in 2016, and Slash rejoining the band, the band returned to a two-guitar set up. Richard would look back at how they had decided who got to play what:

Everybody sort of had their role, I guess, and we would divide it up accordingly. And, I don't know... it changed with every incarnation. You know, it is a difficult thing to divide up and who's going to cover what ground, you know, but I don't know, there was no rules, it went song by song.


And of course, with Slash coming back he would play the parts he had composed, including one of the solos in November Rain which Richard had played previously:

Slash took that away from me [laughs].

Now it's like easy because it's like, "Well, hey Richard," you know, "you're just gonna play this because I'm fucking Slash, I'm gonna play," you know, "this is my part." [laughs]


Richard would also say he preferred the two-guitar approach to the three-guitar approach:

Before, you know, there was so much going on and I don't really have that much of an ego when it comes to that stuff. I like to... you know, someone's got to fill it out, you know? It's so much better now, so much more enjoyable.
