5 minutes, 8 years
Sweet Child O’ Mine was written in five minutes and November Rain took 8 years,
According to Slash, Sweet Child O’ Mine was written in about 5 minutes mainly because it was simple three chord song. The composition itself is fairly simple excluding the lead guitar part. That’s kind of a hard concept to wrap our heads around.
November Rain was finally finished after 8 years and would later become one of the most legendary musical masterpieces of our time! It has everything from piano, to rock instruments, to a full orchestra. It’s a packed song that delivers the goods and we’d wait 100 years to hear it, because it’s truly worth the wait!
