>Yup. I'm around. Does anyone know of a good source for the tablature

>music for Gimme Shelter?

No, but here's a recipe -- I got this out of an interview with Keef in

Guitarist a couple of years back:

        take one Fender Telecaster

        tune to open E (E B E G# B E)

        the intro and chorus use C#-B-A-E (9th, 7th, 5th, open)

        the verse uses C# (9th fret) and F# (basically, move your

                fingers around the 11th and 12th frets)

Listen to it a few times and maybe you'll get a feel for it.  But the

open tuning is essential.

        --Rick.
