Tuning
D G D G B D
Here is my rough attempt at tab for a Stones classic.  The songs is in

open G tuning (D  G  D  G  B  D).  If you want to really be Keith

Richards-esque, remove the low D string completely.

First there is the opening riff as follows:

D 12----12--12--12--12-----x----0------5----5--7----0-|
B 12----12--12--13--12-----x----0------5----5--7----0-|
G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----0------5----5--7----0-|
D 12----12--12--14--12-----9----0------5----5--7----0-|
G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----0------5----5--7----0-|
D ----------------------------------------------------|

While I'm at it, I'll get all of the tab out of the way first.  Here is

the tab for the chorus parts:

        After   All is     said and    done
D 12----12--12--12--12-----x----x------7--------------|
B 12----12--12--13--12-----x----x------7--------------|
G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----9------7--------------|
D 12----12--12--14--12-----9----9------7--------------|
G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----9------7--------------|
D ----------------------------------------------------|

        I gotta move while it's still  fun
D 12----12--12--12--12-----x----x------7--------------|
B 12----12--12--13--12-----x----x------7--------------|
G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----9------7--------------|
D 12----12--12--14--12-----9----9------7--------------|
G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----9------7--------------|
D ----------------------------------------------------|

        I   better walk  before they   make    me   run
D 12----12--12--12--12-----x----0------5-------7----0-|
B 12----12--12--13--12-----x----0------5-------7----0-|
G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----0------5-------7----0-|
D 12----12--12--14--12-----9----0------5-------7----0-|
G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----0------5-------7----0-|
D ----------------------------------------------------|

Some chords you'll need to know in open G

     D  G  D  G  B  D
G    0  0  0  0  0  0   and also  12 12 12 12 12 12
C    5  5  5  5  5  5
D    7  7  7  7  7  7
Emin x  9  9  9  x  x
F   10 10 10 10 10 10
A#   3  3  3  3  3  3

A common Keith chord is like you see on the fourth chording in the

opening riff.  It is like hammering on the same chord position you would

call in standard (concert) guitar tuning for A minor augmented.

For a C position chord, the hammer on would go:

           D  G  D  G  B  D                       D  G  D  G  B  D
  C-chord  5  5  5  5  5  5    hammer on F-chord  5  5  7  5  6  5

If you can do this, you can play Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, etc. etc.
