DJ Ashba Found Playing Other Player's Parts In Guns N' Roses Difficult

(New Rock Times) DJ Ashba says it is easier and more natural to play with Sixx: A.M. than it was with Guns N' Roses where he worked with songs he played no part in writing.

The guitarist opens up in a frank and honest exchange with Silver Tiger Media in which he recalls his time with Guns and performing his own solos with Sixx: A.M.

He says: "I'm not a schooled player. In fact, I played in Guns N' Roses for seven years, (and it was a challenge playing other) people's songs. I do my best, but I have such a distinct style, and it's hard for me to actually play other people's songs; I actually have to work at it, whereas Sixx: A.M. is my style.

"It's what [come out of me naturally]; I don't even have to think about what I'm playing, it's just… I feel it. And I can't explain it. Along the way, many people have wanted me to teach 'em how to play guitar, and I can't teach you, because I'm not a teacher." Read more here.
