Slash Says New Album is Raw
Slash tells Total Guitar magazine, "We're just going for the one take that sounds good, so my solos are more raw, probably sloppier in a way, because they're very spontaneous to the point where it's in the heat of the moment."
Of the completed individual songs, Slash says, "There's one song at this point called 'Bad Rain' which is a mid-tempo, very heavy and dark song. It's in a drop-D tuning – and we're already playing a half-step down – and the solo has a kinda chromatic feel.
"There's one very uptempo song with a cool riff called 'Halo.' The third song is called 'Standing in the Sun' and it's very melodic, mid-to-uptempo… just a rock 'n' roll song! All three of these songs are relatively short, they're all in a rock mold, and I guess I always come from that pentatonic point of view. For me, any time you go too far out of that, it ceases to be rock. It has to have a basis around that, otherwise it no longer has any essence of that Chuck Berry kinda deal." more on this story
