I've always kind of thought that Slash was trying to write licks that are perfect for warming up the fingers.
I'm not sure about anybody else, but when I'm not around other people, I tend to use the Sweet Child Of Mine lick as a quick limber-up/warm-up exercise to get ready to bust into other things. A lot of his other songs work pretty well too!
But now that I've heard this song Anastasia, I'm pretty dead set that his purpose is to provide other guitarists with good finger exercises.
EDIT: The part I'm talking about starts about 35 seconds in. Not that the cool acoustic part isn't good. Actually, you should check it all out

I agree, that intro is amazing. I heard that Slash was playing that Sweet Child lick as a warm up and the rest of GNR liked it so much the song was written around it.
