                             FINGERPRINT FILE - The Rolling Stones
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: standard


Riff and verses:
---------------
            Cm7          A#
e|-------x--3------3-----------|------------------------|
B|-------x--4------4-----3-3-3-|--x-----x-----x----x----|
G|-------x--3------3-----3-3-3-|--x-----x-----x----x----|
D|-------x--5------5-----3-3-3-|--x-----x-----x----x----|
A|-------x--3------3-----1-1-1-|--x--3--x--x--x----x----|
E|-----------------------------|------------------------|

e|-----------------------|--x----x--3-----3----------|

A|--x----x----x----x--3--|--x----x--3-----3----1-1-1-|
E|-----------------------|---------------------------|

e|----------------3--x-------|  Then the whole rhythm guitar part is based on
B|--3--3--3----x--4--x--3----|  that.
G|--3--3--3----x--3--x--3----|  When you go back to Cm7 from A#, alternate
D|--3--3--3----x--5--x--3----|  between what is shown on the left and something
A|--1--1--1----x--3--x--1----|  like what is shown below:
E|---------------------------|

e|-------------------------|-------x--3-----3----------|
B|--3--3--3----x-----------|-------x--4-----4----3-3-3-|
G|--3--3--3----x--3--3-----|--3----x--3-----3----3-3-3-|
D|--3--3--3----x--5--5--3--|--5----x--5-----5----3-3-3-|
A|--1--1--1----x--1--1--1--|--1----x--3-----3----1-1-1-|
E|-------------------------|---------------------------| and so on.

A phaser is needed to achieve that organic tone and I highly recommend a capo on the 
fret because that is the best way to play it (see live version: Mick actually plays it one 
step down, but the recorded version has been pitched up through the mixing)

On the top of that, a second guitar is played by Keith scratching on the 8th fret (Cm):

e|-------------8-8-8------|    --------------x-x-x-----| are the most
B|-------------8-8-8------|    --------------x-x-x-----| recognizable licks
G|-------------8-8-8------| or --------------x-x-x-----| but there are plenty
D|------------------------|    ------------------------| others.
A|------------------------|    ------------------------|
E|------------------------|    ------------------------|

You will need a wah-wah pedal to get the funky tone.


Bridge:
-------

There's a sort of bridge played in Fm7. While the rhythm guitar plays random low notes 
the 3th and 5th, the wah guitar plays:

e|--11---11--------11-11-11-11-----|------11---------11--11-----|
B|--13---13--------13-13-13-13-----|------13---------13--13-----|
G|--12---12--------12-12-12-12-----|------12---------12--12-----|
D|---------------------------------|----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|----------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|----------------------------|


Chorus:
-------

The chorus includes two bars in G and two others in F#. The rhythm guitar plays low 
and scratches hard on the beat. Lead guitar plays three different leads (though similar) 
chorus. Note that on the last beat of the preceding bar, it also plays an agressive top 8th fret.

Outro:

At 4:51 the rhythm guitar start scratching on-beat and at 4:55 it strikes Cm7 on the 
Finally it scratches from 5:36 to 5:55 then stops playing.
The wah-guitar scratches until 6:21 after a last top 8th fret.
