This second solo in Sweet Child O Mine is an extension of the first solo, develops the motifs and has more of Slash's classic trademark licks!

You want to go for a Marshall type amp for this and don't overdo the gain! Settings wise, set everything to 12 o'clock and then you probably want to take out a little mid but otherwise you just need to ride (explore) the gain to get the right amount - it'll be different on every amp so I can't say how much for your exact amp!

Just a little reverb from the Stymon Big Sky.
