Guns N' Roses - It's So Easy


Guns N' Roses - It's So Easy - Meaning of the song


It's So Easy" is "an account of a time Duff McKagan and West Arkeen, and also the rest of the band, were kinda going through. They didn't have money, but they had a lot of hangers on and girls [they] could basically live off of ... things were just too easy. There's an emptiness; it's so easy.


McKagan and Arkeen originally composed the song as an acoustic "Hippie Ya-Ya" tune, and it was Slash's idea to adapt it into a rock song, according to an Eddie Trunk interview from 2006.

McKagan stated that Arkeen taught him about alternate tuning, leading the song to have a more distinctive sound, saying "without open-E tuning, that song wouldn't have happened", that's why West has songwriting credit on it.
