We're bringing you this song in a made easy tutorial for beginners so you can strum along with the band. The original version uses more than one guitar layer & and an open G tuning which you'll hear as part of the backing track. We will use standard tuning and simple open chords to play the chord progressions and jam along.

We are also including a bonus lesson that expands upon the open chords to include some suspended chord extensions that is a hallmark of the Stones sound.

Any acoustic guitar is suitable to play this tune, but one with a brighter tone will help cut through the band better.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about open chords, suspended chord extensions, and a simple strum pattern. We are in the key of G major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 115 BPM.
