                                   SATISFACTION

                  written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

That famous tune really tore apart the pop rock landscape of the sixties : there 
was before that tune and after. 
The principle of the riff was simple : an overdriven guitar playing 3 notes 
accompanied by a bass playing four so the bass is important here!
(It was said after that Keith Richards was so dissatisfied (sic) with the overdriven
sound that he wanted to remove it!) 

So to play it we use :
- an overdriven guitar
- a clean guitar that replaces the first during the choruses
- an acoustic rhythm guitar
- a bass
- drums

To begin with the simplest the rhythm acoustic guitar plays only three basic chords :
E :  022100
A :  577655
B :  799877

Each chord begins with two downstrokes then you alternate upward and downward
strokes until the next change of chord. That is for the rhythm guitar! So I did
not tab it.

The overdriven guitar ( lead guitar ): you must find a good sound for it. 
Then the point when playing those famous 3 notes ( B  C# and D) is to control 
the sustain : at times you produce two dry Bs , at others one dry B then a 
sustained one. Always control the sustain on the D.

The bass : it enters at the third note. Each time the lead guitar plays B B it
plays E E but not simultaneously. Since I am unable to note rhythm I must be precise
here in saying that the second E is delayed after the second B. I noted that in the tabs.
So listen to the tune first!

The clean guitar : I do not guarantee an extreme accuracy of the tab for that guitar
but it works. You shift between E and A while playing and leaving the rhythm guitar 
fill the gaps.

You can hear a (satisfactory.. I daresay) mp3 demo at the URL above. 

All guitars tuned in standard tuning.

Legend :
h : hammer-on
p : pull-off
