Fingerpicking The Rolling Stones
FINGER PICKING ROLLING STONES
Like many bands that came out of England during the sixties, The Rolling Stones were firmly rooted in the roots music including the Blues.Each arrangement has a solid arrangement for the verse, as well as exciting and spicy solos! You'll learn how to play the following songs:
• 'Dead Flowers
'This song has such a country-ish style to it, which I've incorporated into the arrangement by using some country style licks. The arrangement is in Drop D - which is standard tuning with the low E dropped down to a D. Very useful for fingerpicking songs.
• 'Factory Girl'
I'll start you off with a basic arrangement before adding all kinds of cool variations and a solo. Another one in Drop D.
• Honky Tonk Woman
You've seen this one in the video up top. Keith used open G, but I'm leaving the high E string the same, which works well and is already familiar to you.
• Prodigal Son
Originally recorded by the Reverend Robert Wilkens as 'That's No Way To Get Along' and also as 'Poor Boy Long Ways From Home,' back in the 30's, this tune was nicely adopted by the Stones and played in Open D tuning.
• You Got To MoveI
Think Keith and Mick do this Mississippi Fred McDowell justice and I'm confident you'll enjoy my arrangement. I left it in it's original tuning of Open C (which is SO cool) and I'll even give you some great tips on how you can add some nice improvisations to the song.
