Under My Thumb as in the live album "Still Life" (American concert  1981)
The Rolling Stones
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by:Vilhelm Fr'a'ndberg
Email:Vilhelm.Frandberg@gbgsd.se

Tuning: normal

there's two guitars in this song the first guitar who plays the chords, 
the guy who play that guitar should sing too. 
The second guitars does the intro and solo, 
he also jams in the key of F#m in the verses. 
BTW, the whole song goes in F#m so you can use that key to find the solo 
or make one up yourself, 
i didn't have the time.
