How to play Welcome to the Jungle on guitar

by GuitarDomain

The riff to the opener of one of the all-time great rock albums, perhaps the greatest, has to make itself count, starting with the famous delayed part, leading into the crescendo before the riff finally hits – and when it does, Slash delivers big time. It’s precisely why learning how to play Welcome to the Jungle on guitar remains such a milestone for all aspiring rock players.

For our lesson, we’re looking at the riff that leads into and forms the verse. Most of the rhythm work is based around an A5 powerchord (played with a first finger barre) and a run down the sixth string where you’ll need to draft in your second finger.
