New Rolling Stones Guitar Lessons Package

The Rolling Stones have been a favorite band of guitarists and music fans alike for almost 50 years now and have been the creators of some of the greatest riff-based songs of all time. This set of lessons includes some very detailed looks and explanations of some of their songs, some simple strumming patterns, and a few that just go over the main riff or intro to one of their classics.

1) AngieAngie, released on Goat’s Head Soup in 1973, was believed to have been written about Angie Bowie, but Keith Richards actually came up with the chord progression and title as he had just named his daughter Angela. Mick Jagger apparently rewrote the lyrics about his dysfunctional relationship with Marianne Faithfull. One of the rare acoustic songs by the Rolling Stones, Angie is really a guitar duet with a straightforward accompaniment played by one guitar and lead fills by the other. The lesson covers the rhythm guitar part and included tab to a Chord Solo that Neil improvised in the Play Through Segment.

2) Paint It Black

Paint it Black was released in 1966 on Aftermath. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, while Brian Jones’ contribution on the sitar gave the song a unique texture, blending the Stones’ hard rock and roll with the resonance of the sitar. The song is played in the key of D minor, but capoed to the 3rd fret, really putting it in the key of F minor. Paint It Black is a very simple song in terms of technique and the intro is a nice little picking rendition of the melody.

3) Waiting On A Friend

Waiting On A Friend is a fairly basic strumming song with a couple of notes added to C and F chords to create a little melody. This lesson goes over the simple rhythm accompaniment. Tab is included to the Chord Solo that Neil improvised in the Play Through segment.

4) Wild Horses

The Stones’ recording of *Wild Horses*featured 3 guitars throughout the song, one acoustic guitar in standard tuning, another in open G (DGDGBD), and an electric playing mostly fills. This lesson looks at the basic rhythm part, playing some of the Open G parts, as well as a Chord Solo as Neil plays in the first segment.

5) You Can’t Always Get What You Want

*You Can’t Always Get What You Want*is really just a basic Campfire song and about as easy as it gets in the Rolling Stones’ catalog. A few simple chords and a simple strumming pattern and you’ve got it. This lesson also talks about playing in different keys using a capo to create different sounds.

6) Bonus

The Bonus Songs in this set are from our series called *Intros, Riffs & Licks*. These lessons are usually between 5 and 10 minutes long and just go over the main distinctive or most recognizable part of a popular song. A Chord Chart and/or Tab is included, whatever is necessary, and many Rolling Stones songs would fall into this category. In this set of lessons we are including all the following songs:

Satisfaction
Brown Sugar
Honky Tonk Women
Jumpin’ Jack Flash
Start Me Up
