         BROWN SUGAR -  Mick Jagger - Keith Richards


A great rock and roll classic by the Rolling Stones not difficult at all. I played it
just from listening to the tune and afterwards I couldn't find a satisfactory tab to 
improve the way I played it so I tabbed it down from what I played. 
There are three guitars, two electric and one acoustic. The two electric guitars 
are tuned in open G except the 6th string that is left in E (not in D) for the 
solos and the final though most of the solos are played with a saxophon in minor 
pentatonic C. It is easier to play the open G with the first string removed 
like Keith Richards did. The acoustic guitar is in standard tuning.
The MP3 demo on the Web page is divided in two : the final is in a second
MP3 demo.

The acoustic guitar plays the full chords very simply:

Eb : X65343
C  : 332010
Ab : 466544
Bb : 688766
G  : 320003
F  : 133211

Tune both electric guitars in open G as indicated.
