Song: Beast of Burden
Artist: Rolling Stones
Album: Some Girls


I've seen a lot of the other versions weren’t that close to the recording.
The intro actually is right, and there’s two other guitars during the song.

The intro could be played two different ways, but are the exact same notes


Here’s the intro two different ways:

    D   E           B     C#m        A

e|--2-/-4---4-4—-x--2--x--4—(4)x------------|
B|--3-/-5---5-5—-x--4--x--5--5-x-----5------|
G|--2-/-4---4-4—-x--4--x--6--6-x-4h6--------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

or
    D   E           B     C#m        A

e|------------------------4—(4)x-------------|
B|--7-/-9---9-9--x--7--x--5--5-x-----5—------|
G|--7-/-9---9-9--x--8--x--6--6-x-4h6---------|
D|--7-/-9---9-9--x--9--x---------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------|

The slide from the D to E could be a hammer-on. (index to ring finger)


There's two other guitars that do leads over this guitar, and the chords change during 
"am i hard enough part." But that's pretty much it.

the last C#minor in the second way, the way i think the stones play it, should end like this
B--9---------------------
G--9--9---------9--------
D-11--11---9h11----------

My bad, i made a typo
Please rate this because it's better than the other intros

close but no cigar. try playing barre chords B then E. A hammer-on from B to E, actually. THen back to B, then to A. So like this: B-hammeron-E, back B, then slide down to A.
