			NO EXPECTATIONS   -   JAGGER/RICHARDS

A 1968 production by the Rolling Stones with an easy piece of slide guitar in it.
Also very easy to get from ear.
It is played with three guitars (including the bass) and this is the tab for 
each of them.
I recorded myself playing the 3 guitars.


The RHYTHM GUITAR (acoustic) is left in standard tuning.

The SLIDE GUITAR (acoustic too) is tuned, as often with slide, in OPEN E like this

Legend :
 > >  : strumm in rhythm (very easy if you listen to the CD or the demo)
/ : slide-up
\ : slide-down
h : hammer-on
b : bend (1/4)
ALL NOTES of the SLIDE GUITAR are played with the slide bar (or bottleneck ?)


INTRO :

Only the RHYTHM GUITAR  plays the intro that cannot be more simple

the other the 2 lower.
