NOTES.
1.  This the principal accompaniment and riffs to this song, as played by Keith Richards, on a 
12 string guitar.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tell_Me_(The_Rolling_Stones_song)
2.  Often the mimed TV performances in these early 60's videos, don't always reflect the actual 
recreation of the chords in the keys, in which these songs were recorded.  Or, of the actual 
instruments that were used to play the accompaniments.  These mimed TV appearances were succeeded 
by many subsequent live performances -  
  "…During 1964, The Rolling Stones were regular visitors to the BBC studios, where many of their 
shows were performed live and broadcast straight to air. Two such long lost sets are the Joe Loss 
BBC shows from April and July 1964, which are presented here in their entirety. Also featured are 
the surviving shows from 'Ready Steady Goes Live!'…"
