This tab is a little hard to read but when I do “x” it means how many times to play it
that verse, I’ll include the lyrics for the first time but the rest you have to figure out.

-“Sympathy for the Devil" is a song by The Rolling Stones which first --appeared as the
track on the band's 1968 album Beggars Banquet. -It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith
the video “The ----Making of Sympathy for the Devil” Brian Jones plays the rhythm figure 
a Gibson SJ-200 Acoustic and I’m quite sure Keith uses a Gibson --Les Paul custom
for the solo.-


Gtr I (E A D G B E) – Brian Jones – Rhythm Steel String Acoustic
Gtr II (E A D G B E) – ‘Keith Richards – Lead With Distortion
