GIMMIE SHELTER (LIVE 1997)
                        As recorded by The Rolling Stones
                      

Music by Mick Yagger and Keith Richards


One of the greatest songs by the Stones played life in 1997
I particulairy liked the intro lead, so i tabbed. 
It sounds quite similar to the older version, though this one's much more simple.
Don't know if i have the third line from the G1 Intro as it should be, 
but for the rest i think its pretty accurate.

G1 Intro:

|-------------------------|-----------------|-------------------|-----------------|

After the intro, G1 plays small solo's between verse lines. 
All these licks are done on a C# pentatonic scale.

G2 plays verse and chorus like in the recorded album track:
