Slash And His 'Sweet Spot'

by Gorkez

We’ve heard Slash talk about his ‘sweet spot’: that place on stage, that precise point where the magic happens, where there's a perfect balance between the band and the guitar. Where Les Paul and Marshall speak, bond, and sing to make the hair on your neck stand up. Where you choke a note and a harmonic rainbow appears, a perfect balance wrapped in splendid feedback, infinite sustain and blues.  

However, within this sweet spot lurks chaos and destruction. Riffs sting wicked and power chords like a punch in the chops. Slash is an altered blues/rock, very altered, nasty work in an anarchic punk dress.  
On the first part, primary, punk, chords, power. On the virtuoso part, an incomparable riff-master. Part bluesman with a soul that sings. The common denominator: the bond between Les Paul and Marshall. Legendary.
