ROCKS OFF 

            written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards
from the double ROLLING STONES ' album Exile on Main Street 

This  tune which opens the double album Exile on Main Street is one of my favourites  .
It may sound as classical rock 'n roll but is as difficult to tab as it is to play.  
You can hear much piano and brass instruments on it and I thought that the guitars 
only  would be insufficient to have a good sound. In fact two guitars and a bass 
are enough provided we put some energy in all that !

You can hear a mp3 demo at the URL above.

The first guitar is tuned in open G :  from bass to treble  : D  G  D  G  B  D

The second guitar is in standard tuning.


Legend :

h    : hammer-on
>>   : strum simply in rhythm
