>Yup. I'm around. Does anyone know of a good source for the tablature

 

>music for Gimme Shelter?

 

 

 

No, but here's a recipe -- I got this out of an interview with Keef in

 

Guitarist a couple of years back:

 

 

 

take one Fender Telecaster

 

tune to open E (E B E G# B E)

 

the intro and chorus use C#-B-A-E (9th, 7th, 5th, open)

 

the verse uses C# (9th fret) and F# (basically, move your

 

fingers around the 11th and 12th frets)

 

 

 

Listen to it a few times and maybe you'll get a feel for it. But the

 

open tuning is essential.

 

 

 

--Rick.
