You Can't Always Get What You Want is played in standard with a capo on the fifth my friend.



I am 90% sure it's open g with capo on 5th fret. Though in Rock n' Roll Circus he played in modified standard tuning to cover some of the lead parts due to Jones being completely out of it.

What are some of their easier songs to play, for a beginner?

I don't know really, I mean a good chunk of their rhythm stuff is just basic chords with a few sus4's added. You really should try anything and everything, I remember Sympathy For The Devil being pretty easy - haven't played it in ages though. Sorry it's been awhile since I been a beginner, not my help I'm afraid.

Knew it was something along those lines. I just put the track on this second and picked up the chords.

Playing the lead of Sympathy for The Devils isn't too bad. It starts off with a great chord progression, and the solo is fun.

Satisfaction is pretty easy too.

Yeah I found a lead tab on this site - really fun to play along with.
Satisfaction is one of the first songs I ever learned I think.

The Live recording of "Midnight Rambler" on "Get your ya ya's out" is absolutely amazing. the guitar interplay between Richards and Taylor is some of the best I have ever heard, specificaly in the slow and grindy blues section. I think its one of their best live performances ever. Especially since taylor had only joined the band about a month and a half before this performance.


Keiths lead riff on throughot the "sympathy for the devil" performance from the same album is excellent to, although I do like his tone better in the altamont performance, from the same tour.

I know right? Such a shame they didn't get on well, could have been some great guitar tracks from them. I mean I love everything the Stones did with Wood - I think it's spectacular - but something inside me wishes they had Taylor playing on an album like Dirty Work, would have made it at least mediocre.

Yes, Mick Taylor's Solo is superior to keiths, but I was referring to the riff that keith plays throughout the song. Keith Richards was always more of a rythm oriented guitarist. He has done some great lead work, but I've always looked at his rythm work and his acoustic work as his strong area.

As far as lead guitarists go, I would put Mick Taylor amongst the top three of the style.

I'm not a huge Stones fan, but I really dig Sticky Fingers. Great album. I love watching clips from Rock and Roll Circus... what a great show that must have been.
#54
there ok

i like under my thumb

i never realy liked how kinda jumbled their sound was, they sound like a strung out garage band, idk some bands play sloppy and it contributes to the sound but in the stones it just wasnt the case imo

You're entitled to your opinion that's for sure. But I just wanted to know, what songs/albums have you heard? I mean I'd agree with you if you had only heard something such as "Satanic Majesties Request," I just wanna know what you used to form that opinion is all.

Most of their more popular songs, satisfaction, start me up, beast of burden,

Sloppy wanst realy the right word, I think their songs have catchy melodies and are good, but when i listen to the songs i dont realy feel anything, i mean they are obvoisly playing with alot of emotion, but it still deosnt realy click when i listen. i think the bands decent, but they arent realy anything special to me.
#58
I think it's very difficult for a RS Fan to say which album is the best or favourite, cause they all have there own style.
I like the time with Taylor, "Let it bleed","Sticky Fingers", "Exile", "Goats head soup".
But don't forget the earlier times with "out of our heads" for example and of course
"A Bigger Bang"
#59
i like the the stones because they can play relaxing music like as "tears go by" and "fool to cry", but they can really get into it like "start me up", "satisfaction" and "happy". great band in my opinion.
#60
I like their earlier works in the in the 60's.

And +1 sloopy, there aren't many bands today still playing who have been together through the integration of music from the 60's to the present. Any band that can do that should deserve more these days. Instead of people saying how old they are as a bad thing, they should realise how most bands of today probably won't last as long as them.

Quote by Sloopy

What era of the Stones is your favourite? Be it record-wise, touring-wise, looks-wise, whatever.

For me it's the post-Brian Jones pre-Ronnie Wood era musically, like 1969 - 1974. But I really like the current line-up performance wise.


I like everything the Stones have done, but my favorite era is with Brian Jones in the lineup. The guy could be a major league A-hole, however with his eclectic tastes, he brought a different dimension to their music. For instance, without the sitar in "Paint It Black", the song completely loses its menacing & foreboding tone. I'm sure you know about the recorder on "Ruby Tuesday", Mellotron on "2000 Light Years from Home" & "Citadel", etc.
Even though he & Keith had a big falling out, Keith paid Brian the compliment of being a terrific interpreter(I believe it was in a '72 interview). In other words, taking the songs Jagger/Richards wrote & expanding on them. Mick Taylor & Ron Wood are far superior guitar players, but Jones appeared to have more direct influence on the music than they did. Well, until paranoia/alcohol/drugs/Pallenberg finally took their toll & he was tossed out.
Cripes! I didn't mean to write a novel there. LOL Eh, just my two cents worth.

Thanks my friend. I mean look at their contemporaries from the 60s and into the 70s, how many are still rocking as hard as them Stones? They'll drop dead on that stage, and they've got every right to.

I really like a lot of their stuff from The Rolling Stones No. 2 through Tattoo You. Their first album didn't do much for me and the stuff after Tattoo You sounds wierd.

I have to hand it to The Stones, at first blush a lot of their stuff seems overly simple. But when you look a little deeper, it's pretty darn creative.

How do you all like the Devo remake of Satisfaction? Good, funny, lame, blasphemous?

Crap. Haha maybe that was a bit harsh.

I don't know I liked their last record a lot, but yeah Tattoo You really was their last hurrah musically. Bridges To Babylon was painful.

Did any of you guys get the Biggest Bang DVD set? What did you think of it? I thought the Rio and Argentina footage was awesome. The rest is good too, but not as good as four flicks imo.

I havent seen it around where I live. Stupid small town limitations lol. Has anyone else gotten the song "Paint it Black" stuck in their head at one point or another? lol cuz that song is stuck in my head right now.

... I think this thread deserves a bump, so I'll say that I've listened to 2 RS CD's (Beggar's Banquet and Exile). They are both great... I'm going through my songs right now, when I come to them (I'm on F...) I have Let It Bleed there too.

Hope it's good... I know it will be.

i was talking to my friends dad about the rolling stones and he said there was a movie about this concert they did which went pretty crazy, and somebody died or got stabbed or something i was wondering if anybody knew what the movie was called

Gimme Shelter's great. I saw the Woodstock documentary before that and after watching Gimme Shelter it completely changed my opinions about the 60s.

^^I'm still kicking myself for missing the filming of that. $50 to see the Rolling Stones at the Beacon Theater and I found out too late.

The Stones are one of my favorite bands. Favorite song is a tough one. Maybe Rocks Off. It kicks Exile on Main St. off with a bang.

I've never really been a big fan of the stones, but there alright you know,

I saw a thing where they voted Mick Jagger as the best frontman of all time, i dont know about any of you but i highly disagree, i think someone like Freddie Mercury or Roger Daltery should be up there no question.

Well there's no doubt that there were tons of better singers than him, but no one had the amount of energy and stage presence that he had. He also gets a lot of credit because he was the first real rock n' roll frontman, he was the blueprint.
#79
^Yeah hes much better than Daltrey, more entertaining to watch, not sure about Freddie though.

One of my favourite stones songs is definitely Wild Horses, i just think its mint

Also what key and what scale does the sax solo use for brown sugar? Am not very good at working stuff like that out so any help is well appreciated.

Uhh I can't think off the top of my head. Keep in mind tenor saxes (the type used on the record) are naturally tuned to Bb. I forget how to figure out the matching key from just knowing the guitar key on tenors though. Sorry.
