Rolling Stones - Sway tab

The Rolling Stones
Song: Sway
Album: Sticky Fingers
Year: 1971
Guitarists: Mick Jagger, Mick Taylor
Tuning: 5 String Open G (Bottom string removed - GDGBD), Standard


*Open G parts transcribed with only the 5 necessary strings shown*

This is one of my all time favorite Stones songs. It features excellent
guitar by Mick Taylor. Mick Jagger plays on this track. No Keith to be
found. Keep in mind that Jagger has a sloppy playing style, so don't
play everything exactly the same. I can't guarentee every note of the solo's
are correct as some of it is very hard to hear in spots, but there
were no tabs on the web of Sway, so I tried my best! I trust you guys
know the song and where each part goes. Listen to the song
for strumming. The first solo is played with a slide. Taylor played
some notes with the slide and some with his fingers. The second solo
has no slide. Pay attention to recording to hear when to play
