Lyrics
The days of Guns n Roses
When big hair was king
And Slash nood-l-ing
Then a banshee wail from Axl fries your brain
It'll never be the same oh no oh no
The days of Guns n Roses
Snakepit's not the same
They are kind of lame
Chinese Democracy is a bore
The days of Gun's n Roses are no more !

You don't need Slash...
... or any other punctuation mark, Mark. Your command of your instrument and your composing on it continue to stun me, and the results continue to grow on my iPod. Thank you for your many gifts.

Really well done... Wow...

Stunning
Eddie Lang, Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian, Tal Farlow, Les Paul, Wes Montgomery. Those are some of the guitarists whose work I've enjoyed over the years. Alas, I'm not even sure who plays guitar for Guns n Roses (I'm a moax, what can I say?), but I'll say one thing for you Mark, those names I just reeled out? Listening to your artistry at work here, I felt like I was enjoying the best all of them had to offer. This was excellent--how could it not be? You are amazing! I'm setting up a fan club for you here in Minneapolis! Take care and thanks for sharing, Michael

One of the Coolest Titles Ever!
I always loved "Days of Wine & Roses." This recording is fabulous. The interplay between the guitars is wonderful. The tones and performances are great. And the title and art work are just so funny. Awesome!

I don't know ...
...what these other folks are talking about. This thing NEEDS Slash... it's missing that screaming tone and relentless riffing.... It needs loudness... Even when I turn this up LOUD, it doesn't cause my ears to bleed...

Man, and I had such high hopes after I read the lyrics...

Ibstrat said 2643 days ago (April 2nd, 2010)
The
lyrics are meant to be sung by the listener over the track in a style approximating James Hetfield.I did contact Slash about playing on it= I sent him the sheet music, but he sent it back changing chords like Eb7b5 and Fmaj7b5,9 to E5 and F5.In fact 3/4 of the chords were removed and they were all changed to power chords.Since the melody didn't sound good with just E5, F5 and G5 I decided to do it myself.Sorry about the volume I will post another version with 10x volume maximizer.

Wine in doses
I know the jazz standard. Is there GnR material in what you play? I don't think I know a single track by them.

Love your guitar playing. Is that really only two instruments? Sounds like three: melody, chords, bass. It says a lot about your control that the chords and bass (which I assume were played on one instrument) sound so independent.

It's
2 guitars, the backing chord progression is the same (Almost) as "The Days of Wine and Roses" with a different melody, the lyrics are to be sung to the "Winne n Roses' tune. Thanks!

Noodles of fun
Ha-ha-hah - very clever! Don't you love it when such an perceptive parody pops into the mind?

However, the joke was on me. It wasn't until halfway through the piece that I realized some lounge singer wasn't going to come in and sing those satirical lyrics.

Consequently, I missed much of the music, and I had to immediately click the play button again, so I could listen to the intent of your jazz guitars, rather than being distracted by my preconceived notions of what I thought the song was going to be.

And now I can say: Nice noodling! You've got the touch.

Wow, that was indeed in aural treat. Great job. Looking at the lyrics and the vibe of the music you can imagine that it fit in with my sensibilities. The crooning goof. Lol. Hey send me a vocal melody and who knows. Maybe i'll finally complete a collab attempt. This is really good.

A fine epitaph!
Your playing here does on guitar what those great keyboard masters do on the Hammond, leaving me with a feeling of deep, happy warmth. And with your unsung lyrics, you do to GNR what a very old Mad Magazine poem "to go on rock bands' tombstones" did to the Beatles (with this suddenly-remembered verse I read in the '70s):

"Ringo, George, Paul and John / Played a trick and put us on / Pretended Paul was dead as nails / And rocketed their record sales!"
