Brown Sugar
The Rolling Stones
Tabbed by Stoneman
14/5/09



We've all heard by now that keith Richards 
plays lead guitar without his first 
string and the A sting tuned down to a G.
i'm not sure of the way he would hold some of those
chord shapes if that info is correct,
considering that you never have to use the strings that you
have to change anyway,i've figured it all out in standard.
There are also 3 guitars in some parts of the song.
The intro for example has 2 guitars doing the same thing
panned out into the left and right speaker.
as both guitars always appear to be playing the same thing,
I'll try and save alot of confusion and only include the 2.

Love the tab. I don't know if it's right, but it sure sounds right with me playing along to the album, so it's right enough. I can't believe I have never even tried to learn this song before. For one reason it sounds kind of difficult and secondly I rarely try to learn Stones songs because even though I love them I know they use strange tunings and stuff. So thanks for figuring this out in Standard, it's a lot of fun to play.

Good attempt - not quite right though. Each of the barres include the low G-string hence you do use the strings you've changed. Barring in this nature in standard tuning does not produce the correct notes,
