JUMPING JACK FLASH  -  Jagger / Richards

Some tabs of the song can be found on OLGA but they sound incomplete to me .
I don't mean that this one is the full score but once we know that the lead guitar
must be tuned in open G, it seems easy to tab the lead guitar part. This is
an attempt to tab the song from both the original studio recording and the
live version of "Get yer ya yas out".

The original tune is played in Eb. The best is to use capos.
Two guitars and a bass
The first guitar is an acoustic guitar which is tuned in OPEN E  that is from low to high: E-B-E-G#-B-E
The lead guitar is tuned in OPEN G that is from low to high: (D) - G - D - G - B - D  
                                        (the sixth string is useless here and it is better to remove it)

[Lyrics]
I was born in a cross fire hurricane
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain  
     
But it's alright, now in fact it's a gas
But it's alright, I'm Jumpin'Jack Flash it's a gas, gas, gas

I was raised by a toothless beard hag
I was schooled with a strap right across my back

But it's alright, now in fact it's a gas
But it's alright, I'm Jumpin'Jack Flash it's a gas, gas, gas

I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead
I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled
And I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread
I was crowned with a spike right through my head

But it's alright, now in fact it's a gas
But it's alright, I'm Jumpin'Jack Flash it's a gas, gas, gas

Jumpin'Jack Flash it's a gas

Is this one of those Stones songs where they changed the speed, and therefore the key, when they did the reissues? I haven't tried the Open E guitar yet, but playing along to the song on Grrr!, Hot Rocks or Through The Past Darkly (all of which are the reissues) the Open G guitar capo 3 is not in tune with the song at all. If you move the capo up to 4 it goes well with the Ya-Ya's version, but not the studio version. Keith has said that it was 2 acoustics (no electric guitar) one tuned to Open D with a capo to make it Open E, and the other was in Nashville tuning. I don't know much about Nashville tuning (other than that is requires breaking up a 12 string set), so maybe the Open G is just Nashville tuning arranged for Open G, I don't know. All I know is it doesn't work. I'm assuming it's a speed issue, and the tab is just outdated because of speed corrections. Like all Beggars Banquet tabs are outdated if they were made prior to the re-issue where they restored the "correct" speed. Because it's a well made tab, and I doubt it's the work of somebody who doesn't know what they're doing.
