Sample Ideas: Guitar Stems From Slash, Eddie Van Halen & Others


Looking for some top quality guitar samples? How about some from rock legends Slash, Eddie Van Halen and John Frusciante?

An overlooked choice of instrumental sample in hip hop is the guitar, possibly because it’s so hard to find an isolated solo in a track or an authentic sound lick from a sample pack. Thanks to Open Culture and some generous uploaders on YouTube, there are a collection of stems from classic rock tracks such as RHCP’s Under The Bridge, Clapton’s While My Guitar Gently Weeps and your drunk uncle’s favourite Sweet Child O’ Mine.

Stream Slash’s guitar track from Sweet Child O’ Mine and check out the rest at Open Culture.
