Peace, Paul Z audsm@asuacad }8@) From: cscsj@lux.latrobe.edu.au ( Junacko) Subject: Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter Tips Yup. I'm around. Does anyone know of a good source for the tablature music for Gimme Shelter? No, but here's a recipe -- I got this out of an interview with Keef in Guitarist a couple of years back: take one Fender Telecaster tune to open E (E B E G# B E) the intro and chorus use C#-B-A-E (9th, 7th, 5th, open) the verse uses C# (9th fret) and F# (basically, move your fingers around the 11th and 12th frets) Listen to it a few times and maybe you'll get a feel for it. But the open tuning is essential. --Rick.
