(Jagger-Richards)

Transcribed by: Patrik Lundstrom, patrik.lundstrom@lund.mail.telia.com

About the song: This song is the opening track of the '72 double album 
                "Exile on Main St."

I know this this isn't exactly how Keith plays it, but this works
quite nice for me anyway. There is no need for the open G tuning
in my version but if you want to you can do so without having to
substitute too much of my tabing. Occasionally I tune down the 
A-string to a G which enables me to do Stones chording and still 
play lead on the higher strings the way I'm used to. Experiment
yourself. Since the right timing is hard to show in tablature, I
haven't even tried to get it right. Listen to the record and you
will get the feel. Last but not least, I'm not a very accomplished
guitar-player or Stones interpreter but I hope this will help 
someone to play one of the greatest songs of all times,

Patrik

When he plays it live, he plays it with an open E guitar, I believe.
