                        GIMMIE SHELTER (LIVE 1997)
                        As recorded by The Rolling Stones
                      

Music by Mick Yagger and Keith Richards

Transcribed by SwingerNL

One of the greatest songs by the Stones played life in 1997
I particulairy liked the intro lead, so i tabbed. 
It sounds quite similar to the older version, though this one's much more simple.
Don't know if i have the third line from the G1 Intro as it should be, 
but for the rest i think its pretty accurate.

G1 Intro:

|-------------------------|-----------------|-------------------|-----------------|

After the intro, G1 plays small solo's between verse lines. 
All these licks are done on a C# pentatonic scale.

G2 plays verse and chorus like in the recorded album track:
