This is my cover of Knockin' On Heaven's Door, off the "Use your Illusion II" album (1991) by Guns N' Roses.
They covered the song, but their cover is my favourite version of this song originally written by Bob Dylan.
I used a BACKING TRACK, no original song was used here.
This song is a classic, it has a lot of guitar parts, and it was kinda sad trying to make an arrangement for 2 guitars, cuz you gotta leave behind some important parts. So I decided to not make arrangements here, I played the song as it was recorded on the original song, I guess its better way to understand its complexity.
It has 2 guitars as base, Izzy on the left channel, Slash on the right channel, both playing rhythm, sometimes Clean sometimes w/Distortion.
But then Slash added some other stuff to the center of the audio: the lead intro and lead verses (which of course he recorded by separated), the clean octaves during verses, the distortion octaves during choruses and, of course, the solos.
Btw, on the original song, the distortion octaves part during choruses is a different guitar than the Solo guitar parts, but I found it was possible to play the solos after the distortion octaves on the same guitar.
It took me several days to figure out, and its the hardest tab Ive written so far (hard to write not to learn, its a very easy song to learn actually).
Another btw, at the very end of the 2nd solo (3:54 in my video) Slash holds a note, and it starts making feedback from the amp. I dont have an amp here, used direct recording, so I just made a little harmonic effect on that part, getting the same note Slash got with feedback.
That little intro before the song starts is a short version of the intro that Slash played on the Freddie Mercury Tribute concert, Slash based that intro on "Only Women Bleed" by Alice Cooper.
I hope you like my video.
thanks for watching!
