Ronnie Wood, legendary rhythm guitar player for the Rolling Stones said that he taught the young Slash some fine pointers in how to play the guitar when Slash was living in England as a kid.
I wonder what Ronnie charged Slash for lessons? It shows that you can never pay too much for a good, or in this case one hell of a good, guitar teacher!
I found this article both funny but interesting. It makes me wonder if Ronnie’s influence played a big part in Slash’s learning curve or just something trivial.
I see similar parallels in styles but nothing that jumps out at me and says, I can see a little bit of Ronnie’s style in what Slash in playing there!
Wood said, “I remember him as a kid spying on me when I was playing guitar and I’d teach him little licks, and now I’m learning licks off him, it’s really good.”
Now it seems that the teacher is no learning a thing or two from the student!
